SINET and Juniper Networks to accelerate connectivity across Cambodia’s booming digital economy

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced that SINET, one of Cambodia’s largest internet and telecommunication service providers, has selected Juniper Networks to upgrade its network infrastructure, accelerating time-to-value for customers in Cambodia. Building on a long-term relationship, SINET has partnered with Juniper Network for further upgrades and to deploy advanced network solutions, deepening the foundation for its exponential growth.

 

As one of the fastest-growing economies in ASEAN, Cambodia is on the cusp of a digital revolution, with mobile connections having risen to 128.8 percent of its total population in 2021. With SINET’s network infrastructure upgrades, enterprise users can now use a common framework to manage the exponential increase of endpoints accessing campus and data centers. In today’s era of hybrid work environments, SINET delivers high-speed connectivity and services to both business and residential customers for smooth video teleconferencing and streaming services.

 

With nearly 20 years of presence in Cambodia, SINET has consistently introduced new network solutions to simplify, connect and empower businesses across the country. The company currently operates over 200 active network points of presence (POPs), providing fast and reliable internet connection to main cities and provincial towns, as well as remote districts and villages, fulfilling its vision to connect all corners of Cambodia. 

 

Juniper Networks was selected for this network infrastructure upgrade having grown and delivered quantifiable success alongside SINET as a long-term partner. With the expansion of the Ethernet Virtual Private Network – Virtual Extensible LAN (EPVN-VxLAN) IP Fabric and Metro-Ethernet transport networks expansion project completed in 2018 and early 2021, SINET was able to smoothly implement the solutions from end-to-end, completing both deployments with almost no downtime.

 

News Highlights:

  • Juniper Networks’ QFX Series Switches provide the building blocks for the EVPN-VxLAN IP Fabric, offering SINET an efficient and scalable way to build and connect its expansive network.
  • Juniper Networks’ ACX Series Universal Metro Routers are at the core of SINET’s latest 200G Metro-Ethernet expansion project, bolstering its nationwide fiber network and maintaining its competitiveness with one of Cambodia’s most advanced networks.
  • With the completion of these network upgrades, SINET has provided more stable and secure services to its customers while laying the foundation for future growth in line with the Cambodia ICT Masterplan announced in 2020.
