Vision to Reality: Software-Defined Secure Networks

by Juniper Employee ‎03-01-2017 10:47 AM - edited ‎03-01-2017 10:48 AM

February has been a busy month for Juniper! Two weeks ago you may have caught us at RSA, where we announced our technology alliance partnerships to expand Software-Defined Secure Networks. Following RSA, Juniper hosted its first SDN and Network Automation college-student competition in our Silicon Valley OpenLab. Currently, we are wrapping up at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we announced we are partnering with Affirmed Networks and Netronome to deliver a scalable cloud solution for mobile subscriber services. Our theme is "Are you ready for Digital Cohesion?" and we are showcasing  various mobile networking solutions and partnerships that help build a cloud-native IP platform that will prepare customers for 5G, IoT and ultimately Digital Cohesion. This Mobile Cloud Architecture will provide robust solutions to help mobile operators.

In addition to our activities this month, we are excited to share that Juniper has collaborated with Sony to deliver our switching technology to support Sony's IP Live production solution, enabling broadcasters to capture and distribute live coverage of events globally. We also revealed survey results  that show consumers and businesses recognize the advantages of digital cohesion. We are proud to share that Vodafone has selected Juniper as a Vodafone Global Approved Vendor for its Contrail Networking software-defined networking (SDN) solution. Additionally, Juniper participated in the recent "Telefónica Talks" technology overview event for the company's 17 global operating units to address the topic of 5G with thousands of Telefónica employees globally, which we discuss further in our featured content. 

For more information on our partnerships, survey results, OpenLab competition and Sony collaboration, see featured content below.


Juniper kicked off 2017 with record results in switching, routing, cloud and overall revenues followed quickly by enhancements to Juniper Networks Unite data center and multi-cloud solutions. As always, we also recap marquee customer wins from the month.

Juniper today announced Juniper Networks® Unite Cloud, a transformative data center framework that gives enterprises the end-to-end solutions to simplify the creation and management of hybrid, multi-cloud environments. As part of Juniper Networks Unite, a secure, agile enterprise architecture, Unite Cloud is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership while increasing long-term return on investments.

We announced our 2016 Q4 financial results, reporting net revenues of $1,385.6 million, 5% increase YoY and an increase of 8% sequentially. For fiscal year 2016, Juniper's net revenues were $4,990.1 million, an increase of 3% year-over-year. In response, Rami commented,
"I am pleased to report year-over-year revenue and non-GAAP earnings growth after a challenging start to 2016. We believe we are successfully executing on our strategy to diversify our business and capture share in the cloud and cloud-enabled segments of our market. Our innovation pipeline and product portfolio are strong and position us well as we head into 2017."

We are excited to share three notable customer wins this month: LG U+, PacketFabric and Tokyo Stock Exchange. LG U+ has successfully rolled out Korea’s first ever carrier-grade virtual routing deployment using Juniper’s vMX and EX switches. PacketFabric chose Juniper switches to provide increased flexibility to support their next-generation cloud networking platform, enabling cost-effective capacity at terabits of scale. The Tokyo Stock Exchanged selected the MX480 3D Universal Edge Router to increase performance, agility and stability. To hear more about these wins, the new Juniper Unite Cloud and Q4/2016 financial results, please see the featured content below.


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.

“If companies truly want to place customers in the center of their universe, as they claim they do, then they must use predictive analytics to reduce bias and reveal hidden truths about who buyers really are, what they really want, and how they really behave.” - Kathleen Schaub


Yesterday we announced our 2016 Q2 financial results, reporting net revenues of $1,221.3 million, flat YoY and an increase of 11% sequentially. In response, Rami commented.
"Despite an uncertain macro environment, we delivered solid revenue performance and profitability metrics in the second quarter. There is no shortage of appetite for network innovation. Our diversification strategy and differentiated portfolio enabled us to deliver sequential growth across all geographies, technologies and sectors. We remain as committed as ever to innovating for our customers and to executing with excellence in everything we do."


We are excited to share some of our customer wins from around the world this month. CyberAgent in Japan selected Juniper's cloud solution comprised of integrated routers, switches and virtual chassis technology to upgrade their networking infrastructure in support of over 40 million users. Saudi Telecom Company in Saudi Arabia has chosen Juniper Networks Contrail Networking to create automated cloud services for its customers. Verizon chose Juniper's uCPE to deliver Virtual Network Services to support digital transformation of enterprises. eBay Classified Group selected Contrail Networking to help build rapid application development and deployment environment to grow their revenue.
