CloudStack is an open source software platform that pools computing resources to build public, private, and hybrid Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IaaS) clouds. CloudStack automatically configures each guest virtual machine’s networking and storage sett
This week the Metro Ethernet Forum held their first industry event – MEF GEN14. There was much self-congratulatory talk on the success of the CE2.0 specifications - it has been wildly successful. But ultimately there is really only so much one can say about Ethernet.
As is common in every telecom conference these days, quickly the discussion shifted to SDN and NFV. There were many fine presentations extolling t
The mobile industry, like most telecom industries, is faced with the celebratory exuberance of overwhelmingly successful data services, coupled with the hangover of how to manage, operate and pay for a network to deliver what customers expect.

Juniper Networks is again at the cutting edge of the smarter society with its vMX – the revolutionary virtual routing for enterprise and service provider networks.
Juniper employees have been working very hard developing, testing, and wrapping neatly in a Junos bow some very helpful features for Junos OS 14.2 and other products. Some of these features will help you optimize your network, others could help save you money, and still others highlight new uses for already familiar features. So, just in time for the holidays, here are our latest staff picks.
The great American writer Mark Twain said “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” Although this is still pretty much true (geoengineering and climate modification notwithstanding), a lot of effort does go into predicting the weather. It turns out that some of the same techniques are used by Juniper Networks to find, fix, and even forecast problems in our products.

Multi-vendor and protocol interoperability has been a staple within the telecommunications industry. Interoperability insures for service providers that they will not be locked into single proprietary vendor implementations that reduce their ability to move to an alternate vendor or alternate implementation, if the situation warrants it. It also provides the vendors an opportunity to compete for service-provider busi
Microsoft released an out-of-band update, MS14-068, yesterday to patch a critical bug in its Kerberos implementation. This bug could allow a remote, unprivileged, authenticated attacker to elevate their privileges to that of any other domain user. Such an attack could also enable the attacker to obtain domain administrator privileges and completely compromise the security restrictions enforced on the targeted domain.
It's that time again to recognize community members that have gone above and beyond with their participation in our J-Net Community and moved up the ranks. Congratulations and thank you for your ongoing participati
I was lucky enough to be one of the people attending the Juniper Networks Launch Event on the 6th November 2014 in London at which we announced key new enhancements to the portfolio, including the Virtual MX Router, the worlds’ first carrier grade virtual router and Contrail Cloud, a reference architecture for NFV deployments.
As I sat listening to both Juniper and non-juniper people present, I started thinking abo
Juniper proudly hosted 100 students from San Jose State University’s College of Engineering for an Innovation Contest at our Aspiration Dome on November 14. These aspiring engineers were challenged to develop solutions for four problem areas established by our own engineering teams from JDI and Supply Chain.
An open architecture is both an advantage for customers, who value freedom of choice, and a discipline for vendors. At Juniper Networks this commitment to openness is a fundamental part of our strategy, and has been since the company was founded in 1996. It keeps us on our toes, but more important, it gives our customers the freedom to use the best technology, or to evolve their data center by leveraging existing inv
On Thursday 6th November 2014, Juniper Networks launched the virtual MX (vMX) router. The vMX is a Virtualised Network Function (VNF) that has been developed directly from the software that runs on the Juniper Networks MX router. As a result, the vMX benefits from the extensive feature set, which has been developed on the MX over a seven-year period, contributing to making it the world’s first full-featured virtualiz
