Airport Railroad Express enhances commuter experience with an all-IP communications network
South Korea’s Airport Railroad Express (AREX) has set the foundation for an enhanced commuter experience and uncompromised safety standard with a modern, flexible network from Juniper Networks. In an era where a state-of-the-art communication system is paramount, AREX has built the nation’s first all-IP communications network.

The all-IP network, which is the heart of the railway system, integrates a variety of networks, including telecom network (PSTN) circuits and wireless networks. It processes all voice, data, and multimedia content based on packets for fast and cost-effective data services. With simultaneous use of the existing low-speed line and the software-driven ultra-high-speed line, the network creates a foundation for scalability and network innovation.
“This project will be the core for the system implementation that we will be pursuing in the future. Juniper has provided stable technology for AREX to maintain uninterrupted service throughout the project, as well as the ability to use existing and upgraded network systems concurrently. We are open to exploring Juniper's transformative solutions for future upgrade projects,” an AREX spokesperson says.
