Telefónica Spain selects Juniper Networks to secure 5G network

Juniper Security Gateway to deliver future-proof, carrier-class security for provider’s mobile backhaul network.

Juniper Networks has been chosen by Telefónica Spain, a leading global service provider, to secure the mobile backhaul of its growing 5G network.

As Telefónica continues to roll out its 5G network across Spain, the provider needed to ensure that all traffic is secure and its infrastructure protected. To achieve this goal, Juniper’s Security Gateway (SecGW) was selected because it provides outstanding performance, scalability and service integration. In addition, with Juniper’s SRX Series Telefónica also selected a platform that can grow to support additional services, including Carrier-Grade Network Address Translation (CGNAT), Stateful Firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Denial of Service (DoS), Application Security, VPN (IPsec), Unified Threat Management (UTM), Quality of Service (QoS) and Large-scale Multitenancy in the future.

This implementation will provide Telefónica with a host of benefits, including:

  • A widely deployed, future-proof and carrier-class platform to secure its mobile backhaul network
  • CAPEX & OPEX reductions, as Junos® is already integrated into the provider’s systems, as well as using common services cards in its MX and SRX units and available growth capacity right from initial deployment
  • Simplified operation with Juniper’s AutoVPN feature, allowing one-time SecGW configuration for all gNodeB points, even newly added ones
  • Flexible high-availability architectures across active/active and active/passive connections
  • A smooth rollout thanks to the experienced Juniper professional services teams deploying the SecGW solutions

To accomplish this, Telefónica will implement the following Juniper solutions:

  • The SRX5800 Services Gateway, an award-winning, next-generation security platform based on an innovative architecture that provides outstanding performance, scalability and service integration. As part of the SRX family, it includes vSRX and cSRX, allowing the solution to extend seamlessly across the Telco Cloud infrastructure
  • The third generation Services Processing Card (SPC3) with advanced security acceleration for IPsec enhances the SRX5800, SRX5600 and SRX5400 to meet the high bandwidth requirements of gNodeB on mobile backhaul security for large scale 5G deployments
  • The fourth generation of Input Output Cards (IOC4), delivering the highest throughput of all SRX5000 series line cards by supporting up to 480 Gbps and offering multiple connectivity options from 10GbE to 100GbE
