Palestinian operator announces network infrastructure upgrades

Paltel the leading telecommunication company in Palestine, has selected Juniper Networks, which specialises in secure, AI-driven networks, to upgrade and develop parts of its network and infrastructure.

This, says Juniper, will take place through the installation of a simplified, space and power-conscious network to deliver fixed and mobile services for Paltel’s business and residential subscriber bases.

Paltel Group has consolidated its ongoing co-operation with Juniper in a strategic move whereby the two organizations will be working together to design and deploy this infrastructure.

Among the features of the new upgrade are the Juniper MX Series Universal Routing Platforms whose gateway and provider edge use cases are optimized for 400G capacity and deliver high density in constrained environments, coupled with software-driven automation and feature-rich, secure capabilities.

The new data centre infrastructure has been built using the Juniper Networks QFX Series Switches, selected by Paltel to enable high levels of network automation and to further support the fast, secure data throughput requirement across the infrastructure.

In addition Juniper says it is enabling Paltel to build a foundational network that is equipped to grow and evolve easily, ahead of changing, unpredictable user requirements and ongoing increases in capacity demand driven by video and content consumption.

Juniper’s local partner, BCI, worked with Paltel to install the new network.

Paltel and its mobile arm, Jawwal, say they are increasingly focused on the quality of digital experience for their users through delivering innovative new services regularly for domestic and international customers across voice, data and video.

This partnership, they add, is part of their continuous work to meet their objective of delivering these optimal experiences at scale while managing operational costs and space/consumption limitations.
