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.

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.Read more...

Exciting 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!Read more...
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.

Markets are changing, technologies are evolving, and customers are demanding more innovative ways to help propel them through their digital journey; this we know. In fact, every tech vendor is likely highlighting this very same point as they communicate their value add to the buyer audience and portray their significance to the third platform which today’s businesses must embrace if they hope to maintain relevance in the growing digital world.
To whom these forward looking customers choose as their next-generation infrastructure provider remains to be seen, especially with regard to the markets of software-defined networking and network functions virtualization, which vendor share has yet to be made clear while customers complete their POC trials.
That said, what we can assume to be the reality for sales opportunities is the short list of tech providers that will make it into the sales room; particularly those that customers hold the deepest trust in providing the best solutions and have a track record of leadership through ever-changing market dynamics. These will be vendors that have proven their value to address the core values of a customer’s business, its future vision and the underlying intricacies to support the bottom line. In this regard, trust goes a long way with buyer decisions and those most trusted almost always stand above the rest. This is where Juniper truly excels! Having all the qualities customers hold important, Juniper ranked as the #1 trusted next-generation infrastructure and services vendor among North American service providers according to a recent survey conducted by Heavy Reading. Rightfully connected, this feat amongst the competition goes synergistically hand-in-hand with Juniper being recognized as the fastest growing router brand in North America by ACG Research, as highlighted in last month’s blog post. Considering all variables that come into factor when building the networks of tomorrow, rest assured that Juniper will be a leading contender in your next sales discussion.Read more...
