Make History: Announcing Juniper Lab Madness 2014

by Administrator Administrator on ‎02-18-2014 09:00 AM

We’re excited to announce our second annual Juniper Lab Madness Championship, a great display of network creativity and innovation. Last year we showcased eleven Juniper gear lab images submitted by our community members ranging from home lab to enterprise lab setups. This year we are expanding the championship to invite both individuals and companies to submit their Juniper equipment lab images.


Now is the time to get your Juniper lab gear ready for a photo-shoot! Have your cameras out and game faces on.

Lab Madness is a championship for network engineers. Featuring lab images of Juniper equipment submitted by you and your peers, the championship’s outcome is determined by our social communities who vote on which image will make its way through the championship bracket to become the final winner. Here is how it works:


February 18th – March 14th: Individuals and companies submit their lab images

April 8th: Champion Declared


* Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will share a Game Day Matchup that features two submitted lab images for the community to vote on a daily winner. The matchups will be shared on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn at 10AM PT and the daily winner will be announced at 9AM PT the following day.




It’s easy! Submit your best Juniper equipment setup, from immaculate fiber cord connections to your definition of organized chaos; we want to see it all! The submission process is easy just send an email to with the following information:
