Juniper will supply, install and support upgrades to the MX Series routers and line cards as part of its broadband network gateway to manage Airtel’s services and carrier-grade NAT solutions for encryption across the network.

Airtel has been expanding its broadband network to homes and small-to-large business customers. As the company prepares for 5G, Juniper will support its fiber-to-the-home broadband services expansion and other use cases across business segments.

Investments in customer solutions and sales organizations have enabled Juniper to capitalize on the solid demand across each of its end markets.

Due to the worldwide shortage of semiconductors, Juniper is experiencing a component scarcity, which is resulting in extended lead times and elevated costs of certain products. However, the company continues to resolve supply chain challenges and increase inventory levels to limit disruptions.
