Chhattisgarh government plans to link its public agencies and deliver e-government citizen services, secured using online validation and digital certificate, through the deployment of Juniper Networks routing and security services. The Chhattisgarh Government, through India's nodal agency for e-governance – CHiPS, is creating a convergent, hybrid network for audio, video and data based on fixed lines, satellite (VSAT) and radio frequency technologies.
Through the support of Juniper's M- and J-series routers and Integrated Security Gateways (ISG) an extensive range of government services is to be launched, including Chhattisgarh Online Information for Citizen Empowerment (CHOiCE) which offers 130 online government services to the citizens.
Juniper's M-series multiservice edge routers deliver advanced IP/MPLS edge routing services at scale, without compromise on a single platform, minimizing operational and capital costs. The J-series services routers features a variety of flexible interfaces that deliver secure reliable network connectivity to remote, branch, and regional offices. Juniper's ISG provides linear firewall and IPSec VPN performance for the latest internet applications and multimedia content. The Optional Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) security modules additionally provide full protection from all the latest network attacks and threats.
