Unified National Networks, the single wholesale network which holds all telecommunications infrastructure in Brunei, has selected Juniper Network to upgrade its network infrastructure.
Juniper Networks said Unified National Networks (UNN) would benefit from the partnership and will allow UNN to create a telecommunication backbone that will support Brunei government’s five-year masterplan for transforming Brunei into a smart nation, which was announced in 2020.
Brunei has an internet penetration of 95%. UNN was formed in 2019 when Brunei consolidated all existing networking infrastructure nationwide in a wholesale company and created retail service providers to fulfil its mission of unifying national networks and to create a modern and cost-effective digital platform.
The consolidation has allowed UNN to modernise and protect Brunei’s networking infrastructure, allowing them to better deliver resilient and quality services across the entire nation.
To date, the organisation has laid over 3,000km of fibre throughout the country, connecting over 93,000 homes and providing cellular service to approximately 90% of Brunei’s populated areas and connecting roads.
UNN tapped solutions from Juniper Networks to modernise its core, provider edge and aggregation networks to meet connectivity demands.
The Juniper MX960 Universal Routing Platforms provides efficiency for UNN’s 100-Gbps backbone and multi-service edge networks, while the Juniper ACX2200 Universal Metro Routers provide metro Ethernet and radio access network aggregation services.
Juniper SRX5800 Services Gateways are heavily defended by advanced security features AppSecure and Intrusion Prevention System. It delivers firewall and carrier-grade network address translation, providing UNN’s network with an additional security layer.
With these networking upgrades, UNN can continue to provide network services and end-user experiences that support Brunei’s strategic vision of creating a dynamic and sustainable digital economy.
“The potential for Brunei is limitless. As the country moves towards becoming a smart nation, it is crucial that we constantly modernise our systems with industry-leading solutions that will help us provide reliable, secure and stable telecommunications services across Brunei,” said UNN CEO Dr Steffen Oehler.
“We are committed to supporting UNN’s role in bringing Brunei’s Smart Nation vision to life through our experience-first networking approach, which will deliver high-speed connectivity to accelerate the development and opportunities for its connected society,” commented Juniper Networks senior director Asean and Taiwan Perry Sui.
