Automation is an area where IT has always been somewhat nervous, and historically this is with good reason. In the past, I worked for two antivirus vendors where a weekly signature update was released that caused clients to overwrite legitimate files with zero-byte replacements.
We live in exciting and disruptive times where everything is shifting to the cloud. Carrier-grade networking has been the foundation of the internet that we have come to know and love. There continues to be an insatiable need for network capacity, with global Ethernet traffic volume estimated to reach 17,000 Tbps by 2020. Service providers will continue to be under pressure to deliver rapid, low-latency and high-v
Juniper recently introduced the concept of cloud-grade networking—a holistic end-to-end network architecture that combines the operational principles of the cloud with intelligent IP attributes. This innovative approach extends across network domains, enabling service providers, mobile operators, cloud providers, and cable operators to improve the user experience and rapidly introduce innovative new industry- or vert
Have you ever been sitting in the window seat of a plane while flying through the clouds? Isn’t it the coolest feeling, watching the vapor whip by the window? Today’s networks need an infusion of that sense of soaring, giving users the notion of flying effortlessly through the clouds. As a component of the cloud-grade networking solution, we’re announcing the Juniper Networks® PTX10008 Packet Transport Router. The PT
There is great interest in the promise of an SDN enabled network. Source Packet Routing in Networks (SPRING) is an SDN enabled method of routing where a centralized controller maintains the network resources and can steer traffic based on the application’s need.
As applications evolve to take advantage of the traffic engineering capability of SPRING, they will need to operate a mixed SPRING and RSVP-TE network. SPR
Whether you’re adopting a containers- or functions-as-a-Service stack, or both, in the new world of micro-services architectures, one thing that has grown in importance is the network... <cut>
The idea and implementation of a service mesh is fairly new. The topic is also garnering a lot of attention because they handle the main networking challenges listed above (esp #1 & 2), and much more in the case of new proj

Network management has been the problem child of networking for decades. The whole notion of managing a heterogeneous set of devices and software from a single tool was going to be difficult at best. The companies that tried to rise to the challenge quickly learned that staying current with other vendor commands and configuration was nigh impossible, never mind the fact that no vendor wants to cede control to someon
