The new Juniper PTX3000

Juniper Networks has just released a new router, which we think Google could use a few of to continue rolling out their “Double play Internet and TV to the home” (fiber.google.com)

The PTX3000 router’s capacity is designed to rapidly scale over time up to 24 terabits per second (Tbps), making it possible for the PTX3000 to simultaneously stream high-definition video to as many as 3 million households.

The new PIC allows service providers to interconnect sites more than 1,243 miles apart, the distance between San Francisco and Denver.
