Juniper Networks Inc. this week introduced the ACX Series Universal Access router line. With a throughput of 60 Gbps it is designed to support more mobile calls and transactions with fewer dropped calls, while also improving network utilization and revenue opportunities for service providers.

With residential, business and mobile networks traditionally relying on separate access points, the equipment enables service providers to converge wired and wireless network access and lower the total cost of operating, maintaining and updating the network infrastructure, the company said.

“More than one billion active mobile broadband subscribers worldwide are using bandwidth-intensive applications like cloud computing and video telephony, placing significant demands on network reliability and profitability,” Juniper said in a release.

According to the company, the “industry’s only 10 Gbps capable access router” future-proofs mobile access networks by addressing growing bandwidth needs with “seamless migration” from 2G to 3G and 4G/LTE.
