While 100G is becoming nearly ubiquitous, moving beyond 40km has proven to be a real challenge for client interfaces. With no standardized way to go beyond 40km, network operators wishing to upgrade their 80km links to 100G have faced a real dil

The Trusted Computing Group held one of its Members meetings June 16-18 in Edinburgh, UK, and I was pleased to be able to attend, to participate in the work of the Technical Committee.
While TCG has quite a few activities in play, the group is best known for development of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a function often implemented as a small chip that serves as a “Root of Trust” for all sorts of devices that i
Automate, Scale and Create is Juniper’s mantra for building routers that enable service providers to reduce cost and increase profits. This foundational principle addresses the continued rise in network traffic and customer demand for faster, high-quality response times. This sounds like a tall order, but with the newest member of our Converged Supercore router family, the PTX1000, Juniper offers telecom service and
Minimalist Operating Systems and Containers are in vogue these days. Thin being the underlying theme. There is a lot happening in the industry and it can be quite confusing. This blogs attempts to explain the various technologies and how the various dots connect.
Juniper recently announced a new technology alliance with Ruckus Wireless, a major WiFi networking vendor. This alliance builds on our Open Converged Framework by giving our customers another cutting-edge and innovative wireless LAN technology to consider for their enterprise campus deployments that will complement their Juniper network infrastructure.

Matthias Machowinski, Research Director of Enterprise Networks and Video at Infonetics Research, spoke June 10th to recap their quarterly report of the Ethernet Switch market.

In Metro rings, typically most of the traffic goes from the nodes on the ring to a head end.
When the traffic on the ring is low (compared to the size of the links) it is obvious that the “most-efficient” solution is to build a ring of point-to-point connections between the nodes. When the traffic is high, it is equally obvious that the “most-efficient” solution is to connect every node directly to the head-end agg
While 100G is becoming nearly ubiquitous, moving beyond 40km has proven to be a real challenge for client interfaces. With no standardized way to go beyond 40km, network operators wishing to upgrade their 80km links to 100G have faced a real dilemma.
To address this challenge, Juniper has announced the availability of the CFP-100GBASE-ZR cohernet optical module for MX and PTX. Life really does begin at 40 - ki

If you’ve been staying current with the blockbuster movies hitting theaters this year, then you already know that Marvel released a new Avengers movie this spring called “The Age of Ultron.” Like its predecessors, the movie features larger-than-life heroes like the Incredible Hulk once again saving the world.
But not all heroes are incredible like the Hulk—some pack a huge punch in a small package. Take, for insta
Being a security professional these days may seem to some like a never ending game of Whack-a-Mole. Once one problem, vulnerability or intrusion is taken care of, it seems inevitable that another problem pops up that needs whacking into submission.
As appetite for bandwidth grows at an incredible pace, operators are forced into fierce competition with each other to win customers. To meet this surging demand, operators are constantly increasing their network capacity, and vendors such as Juniper must roll out faster and denser line cards.
