Thoughts ahead of the European Peering Forum 2013

In 1995 Pradeep Sindhu founded Juniper Networks to solve the scaling issues of the rapidly growing Internet. Evolving from an open network predominantly used by the academic world to something which would transform the way people live their lives, the Internet needed IP Routing technology which could provide control plane (number of devices) and forwarding plane (throughput) scaling without performance compromise. When launched in 1998, the Juniper M40 router supported line rate packet forwarding without performance compromise for 8 x 2.5 Gbps interface ports. Today the Juniper PTX is the flagship terabit core router supporting 32 x 100 Gbps (1600 times the capacity of M40), but most importantly at price points unachievable 15 years ago. The capacity of a M40 router is now condensed into a Juniper MX5 router, which is 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) high, making it suitable for much smaller locations or infrastructure, such as peering routers; places where the cost of an M40 was prohibitive when launched.
