VicTrack taps Juniper Networks to boost its network and infrastructure


VicTrack delegates Juniper Networks to upgrade its statewide network to provide safer and more efficient commuting experience in Victoria, one of the most populated states in Australia.

VicTrack, the state-owned enterprise that owns all railway and tram lines, networks and infrastructure in the state of Victoria, Australia, has commissioned Juniper Networks for the upgrade of its statewide network that supports mission-critical transport and government applications, Juniper Networks announced.

Juniper’s technological expertise will allow VicTrack to provide a safer and more efficient commuting experience in Victoria, as well as simultaneously bolstering its networking infrastructure to support its business expansion plans to offer communication solutions for the enterprise market.

As an “integral part of the thriving transport system” in a state with a population of nearly seven million people, VicTrack provides a full range of telecommunications solutions for the Victorian Government and its transport partners in support of operational systems and business communications. The company additionally operates and manages an extensive telecommunication network along the rail corridor that includes nearly 3,000km of fibre.

To keep pace with Victoria’s growing population and the increasing demands of its Transport and Government Secure Network (TGSN), we’re told that “VicTrack has strengthened its partnership with Juniper to upgrade to a modern, agile, and automated network infrastructure.”

By selectively replacing legacy components while maintaining the existing Juniper Networks MX and ACX platforms, VicTrack will be able to seamlessly and cost-effectively digitise to meet the needs of its business.

The network refresh, which is expected to be completed by the end of next year, will position “VicTrack to support the delivery of better transport and telecommunications solutions far into the future, across both public and enterprise applications.”

Bruce Moore, executive general manager, VicTrack is delighted to expand and continue its partnership with Juniper Networks.

“The ongoing upgrades will lead to improved network reliability and scalability, as well as simplified network management and operations. Through this network refresh, we are confident in growing VicTrack’s position as a leader in the transport and telecommunications sector, crucial to helping us drive future growth”, he affirms.

He adds: “Alongside Juniper, we remain committed toward providing our customers with leading transportation and communication offerings, experiences and solutions for time to come.”

Bruce Bennie, vice president and general manager, ANZ, Juniper Networks, is honoured that the company was chosen for this project.

Bennie concludes: “With a seamless refresh of their networking infrastructure, we are confident we can help VicTrack offer a solution that is simpler, yet more flexible and powerful to its customers. Our work with VicTrack is testament to Juniper’s commitment toward building networks that are at the forefront of modern and future innovation, all while delivering on our vision of experience-first networking.”
