It’s middle of the night, network engineers are ready, and a two-hour window has been scheduled to upgrade the software on your data center switches. During this process the network will be down, all network-dependent services will be unavailable.
Organizations are going through a transition in how they build network infrastructure. This is because the number and type of applications in use is growing rapidly. The way that applications are accessed is changing and so is the way that they are designed.
Organizations are hosting applications in their own data centers. They are extending their applications across data centers. They are accessing applications fr
Succesful deployments of Microsoft Lync require a robust network infrastructure. Juniper Networks' switching, wireless and management portfolio, validated by Microsoft on both wired and wireless networks, delivers a quality end-user experience. Here are the top top ten reasons to deploy the Juniper ON Enterprise Network for Microsoft Lync:
It’s middle of the night, network engineers are ready, and a two-hour window has been scheduled to upgrade the software on your data center switches. During this process the network will be down, all network-dependent services will be unavailable. This upgrade should have been done weeks ago, but it’s hard to find a good time to take down the backbone of the mission-critical data center.
The consumerisation of IT creates work in the IT department, and it takes work away. There are many devices, many types of devices, and many more locations and times at which those devices need support, configuration and setup. There are also external cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers such as Salesforce.com, Google or Microsoft Office 365 for office applications;
Getting to the network of the future, whatever it will turn out to be, will not happen overnight as we all know. Somewhat steady transformation will be all about how we will introduce new game changing technologies in a way that will work out both technically and financially. As we are trying to figure out what the end game might look like for the radical technology trends like Cloud, SDN and NFV, one thing we are su
In part one of my Q&A with Dr Chris Boorman of social business platform vendor Huddle, Chris discussed the need for businesses to be more social and the impediments to change. In part two, he discussed practical steps to take to be a social business.
Zoe: Do organisations need to change, or do they just let “social” ways of working take off?

In some BGP multi-homed environments between networks, it is possible to achieve shorter convergence times by using certain features beyond traditional [RFC4271] BGP rules. One of these features is the so-called BGP advertise-external or best-external, so that Autonomous System Border Routers (ASBRs) also advertise the best externally received path, even though it may not result as the ultimate best path from the sel
CDN (Content Delivery Networks) is a mature technology and business in our industry. Since Akamai launched the Web Caching CDN service back in 1999 the technology evolved in parallel to the fast growing content, especially video. Nowadays, CDN market consists of two groups, the CDN pure players (Akamai is leading this one), the Telco CDN.
This blog covers how SDN/NFV improves CDN deployments for Service Providers.

While attackers are constantly improving their evasion tactics to extend the lifetime of their malware, users can also leverage these types of evasion tactics to help prevent malware infection in the first place.
A few days ago, millions of servers around the world were impacted by Heartbleed, a security vulnerability in OpenSSL. This was arguably one of the hottest topics on the Internet. Organizations scrambled to put a fix in place and update builds. At Juniper, several product teams worked round the clock to ensure that customers get updates on highest priority. As of a short while ago, Junos Pulse Connect Secure (VPN) an
These past few months have been an exciting start to our 2014 journey. As we approach the close of the first quarter and prepare to open the door to the second quarter filled with future opportunities, I’d like to reflect on the positive movement we have made so far. Juniper demonstrated leadership by unveiling innovative solutions, most notably Firefly Suite, Junos® Fusion, NorthStar Controller, and Juniper Argon Se
