UrbanClap - a mobile marketplace for services in India - has tapped on Juniper Networks to support its business growth.
According to a press statement, Juniper Networks said UrbanClap needed a high performance network infrastructure to meet the needs of its more than 1 million existing customers and to respond to an average of 150,000 requests monthly.
In line, UrbanClap has deployed Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches with Virtual Chassis technology. The company implemented its new infrastructure in its 500-seat head office in Gurgaon.
The new network infrastructure is based on EX4300 Ethernet Switches as gigabit core layer and access layer solutions comprised of EX3300 Ethernet Switches. Juniper Networks said the Virtual Chassis technology allows up to 10 switches to be managed as a single logical device.
In addition, the EX4300 Ethernet Switches, which are linked to the Virtual Chassis technology enables 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) core backbone. The new network also provides 10 GbE access connectivity, which delivers 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) connectivity to each user.
"The Juniper Networks EX Series with Virtual Chassis technology allows us to adopt a pay-as-you-grow approach to infrastructure build-out, which is important for a start-up that is experiencing very rapid business growth," said Raghav Chandra, co-founder of UrbanClap.
"We are eyeing exponential business growth in the days to come, with a many fold increase in our customer and employee base. A high level of customer experience and quality of service are always key priorities and UrbanClap would never compromise on these aspects in the cost of business growth. Considering our business objectives and the requirements of this industry as a whole, we found Juniper Networks' solutions to be the best in its category," added Chandra.
