Juniper Networks Inc.’s T-series high-speed routers are finding favor with researchers developing a faster Internet, the company announced Tuesday.

The first in the new range, the T640 Internet Routing Node, supports 32 OC-192c/STM-64 ports, and offers eight 40Gbps (Giga bits per second) slots. The device has a bandwidth density more than four times that of its closest competitors, Juniper said in a statement.

The T640’s scalability and compatibility with the company’s existing routers will allow network operators to expand their networks economically and make best use of existing resources, Juniper said.
