Network OS performs a critical function that aligns devices, applications, and data for network services based on a set of pre-defined policies and service level agreements (SLAs). Network OS has also to adapt to revolving market environments with open programmability, ensuring communication service providers and enterprises alike to rapidly adopt an agile, scalable, and secured IT infrastructure that is critical to business success.Read more...
Advent calendars normally take the form of a large rectangular card with number of windows. Each window represents a day in December leading up to Christmas. Each day one of these windows is opened to reveal a hidden treasure, be it a poem, story, image, toy, or, most common, a chocolate treat.
In a way, Juniper’s Junos OS is like an advent calendar. It provides a different window behind which is a new and wonderful surprise that give you the power to truly automate your network environment.Read more...
Automation is in our DNA and we take it to a new level by supporting the initial set of OpenConfig data-models in Junos OS 16.1R3 release. It was just little over a year when we had started talking about our leadership on this initiative; early this year (at the MPLS/SDN/NFV world congress), we did a demo showing how the modular and programmatic architecture of Junos can consume new data-models such as OpenConfig...and now, we are shipping it!!
A quick recap – OpenConfig is a collaborative effort by network operators sharing the goal of moving networks towards a more dynamic and programmable infrastructure by adopting SDN principles such as declarative configuration and model-driven management and operations. The group defines a consistent set of vendor-neutral data-models (written in YANG) based on actual operational needs. While initial set of models have already been published, others are being worked upon by the OpenConfig group.
Juniper’s approach to OpenConfig gives maximum agility to customers by decoupling the OpenConfig package release from the Junos releases. Our approach allows the flexibility to add any YANG model (OpenConfig, IETF, or Custom built) as a separate, add-on package on top of Junos, thereby enabling our customers to rapidly roll out new features and services without the need to upgrade Junos OS in their networks. Our support for OpenConfig includes BGP, Routing Policy, Telemetry, RPC, Local Routing, Interface, MPLS and LLDP data-models. Subsequent OpenConfig packages will be shipped as more data-models mature.
There are endless possibilities with Juniper’s OpenConfig implementation. I would encourage you to download our OpenConfig package and try it out on our vMX.

Lego pieces can be assembled in multiple configurations—for example, a set of six 2x4 bricks can be interconnected 915,103,765 different ways. The ability to create and recreate new objects are limited only by our imagination. Similar to a set of colorful Lego blocks, the Juniper Networks® Automation solution comprises a suite of tools that developers can combine and interlock with various open-source frameworks.Read more...
Elections are part of the democratic process in which the general population participates in a formal vote to determine direction for a collective group. Public polling and surveys are as much a part of the modern electoral process as campaigning and voting. Surveys have been widely used to gain a general understanding of the current environment, as well as future directions.Read more...
One of the hottest topics circulating throughout the telecommunications industry today is how service providers are transforming their business model, migrating from a traditional telco operational management style to a development operations style.
But did you know that his hot topic is old news at Juniper?Read more...
Ansible is a very popular automation framework to manage and deploy all components of an IT infrastructure.
Since 2014, Juniper has been providing Ansible modules for Junos to allow our customers to manage Junos devices with Ansible. These modules for Junos are available in Ansible Galaxy.
In its latest release, Ansible is now officially supporting a group of modules for various network devices, including Junos. Juniper is very excited by this new partnership and we’ve been working closely with Ansible to make sure that these new modules will follow both Ansible and Juniper best practices.Read more...
