2016 is the year that Juniper got its security mojo back in a big way.  We’re firing on all cylinders, from software to platforms to sales and across the market segments we address.  Let it be known that we are no longer in catch up mode.  With the goal of leading in security innovation, Juniper is executing on its vision for a Software Defined Secure Network (SDSN) – a secure network addressing real-time threat detection, automated enforcement and adaptive policies across the entire network. 


It’s no secret that there is a major transformation underway as the industry moves to the cloud with automation at the forefront, as this is the only way the networking industry can scale for the long term. However, cloud and cloud services will only be successful if the network that connects to consumers is capable of delivering the experience end users require. For example, if it wasn’t for the wide area network now running on high-performance routers, we would still be watching videos at home by putting little silver disks in DVD players!  As an industry, we’ve thankfully moved beyond this with streaming data services from cloud data centers over high-performance networks that must continue to scale.


We kicked off October with our second annual customer summit, NXTWORK 2016. The summit brought together Juniper executives, customers, partners, press, analysts and IT decision makers to share industry knowledge and perspectives on the future of networking. At the summit, we unveiled enhancements to our security portfolio, opened the doors to our Silicon Valley-based OpenLab, and addressed the future of the networking industry and our vision for the era of Digital Cohesion.


We are pleased to announce Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center has built a mission-critical network infrastructure with Juniper's switching, security and network management technology.


Juniper announced 3Q 2016 financial results this week. Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $1,285.3 million, an increase of 3% year-over-year and an increase of 5% sequentially.

Juniper has been racking up security industry rankings and awards this year for our next generation network firewalls. This is impressive proof that it’s time to take a fresh look at Juniper’s enterprise security portfolio. See for yourself why independent analysts like Gartner and NSS Labs are concluding that Juniper deserves a place on your next enterprise firewall short list.


This month, Juniper announced three important milestones in our alliance strategy. First, we signed an agreement with Lenovo, in which Lenovo will facilitate distribution of Juniper products on a standalone basis or together with Lenovo’s products in China. Next, Juniper's QFX5100 switch line was certified with VMware's NSX solution to help offer our customers the integration they need to succeed. Finally, we made updates to our partner advantage program to present new opportunities for our partners.

We have successfully closed on the BTI acquisition announced earlier this year. We have announced another investment in optical, this time in Aurrion. Juniper has entered into an agreement to acquire Aurrion, a disruptive innovator in silicon-photonics technology. We believe this acquisition will strengthen Juniper’s ability to bring the most advanced and most cost effective network products to market more quickly.

Service Provider Transformation: Change is the New Normal

by Juniper Employee ‎07-25-2016 10:30 AM - edited ‎07-25-2016 10:55 AM

With today’s ever changing competitive landscape, transformation is no longer an option, it’s become an imperative for Service providers to remain relevant, prosper and grow their business. The need for transformation is being driven by several challenges both external and internal, as well as strategic and operational.  Although a transformation strategy and exact approach will vary among service providers, we’ve identified a few key areas where transformation needs to occur:




Last week, Juniper Networks announced the introduction of its new platform solution for highly distributed branch locations, the Cloud-Enabled Branch. An extension to Juniper’s Unite architecture, the Cloud Enabled-Branch is based on the same pillars of making complex network environments Simple, Secure, and Open.


In a time of transformation, don't be afraid to disrupt yourselves. Marketing is a function that is in constant reinvention.


Juniper Networks rang the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange on May 17 when we hosted our 2016 Investor Day event. It was a great opportunity to recognize Juniper as a longstanding public company, which is a reflection of this company’s sustained culture of innovation. Check out the featured content to view the executive keynote presentations.


This month we announced the expansion of our Unite architecture with new EX series switches. Refer to the featured content for all the major highlights on this and more.


This month Juniper participated in INTX 2016, a premier gathering place for media, entertainment, and technology that is shaping the future of the internet and television industry. At the show, Juniper demonstrated how we are innovating with virtualization technology, optical integration, network automation, and its recent acquisition of BTI Systems to deliver an end-to-end packet architecture for cable, which will allow cable operators to transform their networks, unlock stranded capacity and realize the full value of their cable infrastructure.

Catch us at Interop Tokyo this year, taking place at Makurhari Messe on June 8-10. Please reach out to Chelsea Kern ( if you are interested in setting up a private meeting.


OpenStack Summit Returns to its Birthplace, This Time 100x Bigger!

by Juniper Employee ‎05-04-2016 05:15 PM - edited ‎05-04-2016 05:36 PM

20160425_191221-01.jpegExciting times are upon us and this was once again reaffirmed while attending last week's OpenStack Summit in Austin! A record gathering of 7,500 attendees from across the world, the momentum and support for OpenStack and open source technologies continues to sky rocket across the vendor, developer, and end-user ecosystem. It was exceptionally eye opening to see how much the summit has matured since its debut six years ago in the same city - this year 100x larger in attendance!


We kicked off the month of April by completing the acquisition of BTI systems. The close of this acquisition will pave the way for Juniper to help drive the industry toward a more open, automated and highly efficient IP and optical transport network.

At the OpenStack conference, Juniper participated in 12 insightful sessions, including discussions on broad and deep OpenStack integration and bridging various cloud technologies, with a focus on automation and security. Juniper was featured in a number of customer-led sessions, including AT&T, Workday, tcp cloud, Lithium Technologies and eBay Classifieds, amongst others. At OpenStack we announced two products to enhance our Software-Define Secure Networks framework -- a new containerized SRX (cSRX), which is a compact SDN-controlled firewall providing L4-L7 micro services, along with a multi-core version of the virtual SRX (vSRX) now capable of reaching 100 Gbps.

Today we announced our 2016 Q1 financial results, reporting net revenues of $1,097.9 million. In response, Rami commented.
"While our results for the March quarter were disappointing, we remain constructive on the full year and encouraged by early customer feedback on our recently introduced products."

Check out this months featured content for more detail on our virtual security portfolio and financial results.


This month at RSA, we introduced the evolution of network security, the Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN). As the scale and sophistication of threats continue to increase, next-generation security must be built around automated and actionable intelligence that can be shared quickly to reduce risk, protecting the network and its users. Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Network delivers end-to-end network visibility that secures the entire network, physical and virtual. We deliver building blocks for the Software-Defined Secure Network that combines policy, detection, and enforcement with a comprehensive suite of products that centralizes and automates security. Check out the links under the resources section for more information.

Last week at OFC, we announced enhanced optical controls in Junos Space Connectivity Services Director and NorthStar SDN Controller, as well as new optical integration on PTX Series core routers and MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers at OFC. This allows for multilayer convergence to improve IP traffic scale and control for both data center interconnect and metro-area networks, thereby lowering operational expense and creating a foundation for both physical and virtual service creation.

This month's featured content highlights Vodafone Group on recognizing Juniper as an outstanding strategic partner, Saudi Telecom Company selecting Juniper to build the largest internet gateway in the Middle East and Telefonica Spain's transformation with new core network from Juniper.


We are happy to announce that Juniper will be sponsoring OpenStack, Austin 2016. The OpenStack Summit is the most important gathering of IT leaders, telco operators, cloud administrators, app developers and OpenStack contributors building the future of cloud computing. Hear business cases and operational experience directly from users, learn about new products in the ecosystem and participate in hands-on workshops to build your skills. Attended by thousands of people from more than 50 countries, it’s the ideal venue to plan your cloud strategy and share knowledge about architecting and operating OpenStack clouds.


OpenStack members vote all sessions at these events. In total, Juniper is leading 5 sessions and Juniper customers are leading another 5 sessions. Plus we’re hosting a brown bag on vMX. That’s a testament to Contrail’s and Juniper’s momentum within the OpenStack community. This round of voting follows OpenStack member polls showing Juniper Contrail as the top deployed/considered vendor controller for the last two years.


Juniper executives Ankur Singla, Jennifer Blatnik, Scott Miles, Yusuke Kanamori and other Juniper SDN and Contrail experts will be in attendance.Please reach out to Ryan Chan ( or Chelsea Kern ( if you are attending OpenStack Austin and are available to meet with Juniper 1:1.
