Juniper Networks Amsterdam PoC LabJuniper Networks’ EMEA Proof of Concept (PoC) facility based in Amsterdam is part of the global Sales Demonstration Services organization. Built in 2004, the PoC Lab is an open environment that ensures Juniper’s customers have access to the best demonstration resources possible. This open approach enables our customers to connect remotely and perform testing as well as also bring their existing platforms for integration testing with Juniper as their projects progress.


Business is booming and so is your network. Users, devices, and applications are being added all the time. The configuration is constantly changing and demands run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Such a complex environment makes it difficult to support your dynamic business needs today. Let alone planning for future growth, regaining control of your network and allowing it to seamlessly adopt to applications needs and growing workloads is a huge challenge.

Long-stretched hours of configuring settings for routing and forwarding packets through your networks can be an exhaustive regimen. Especially, with networks constantly increasing in size, heterogeneity, and complexity, effective management and planning for such networks is so vital. A cohesive, easily-navigable, and robust application that enables bulk configuration on devices is an imperative need of the hour.   

Telecommunication establishments and organizations worldwide that offer MPLS and carrier Ethernet services face common business challenges such as controlling capital and operating expenses, accelerating time to market and increasing customer satisfaction. At the same time, these

companies also have to deal with the following technical challenges:

  • Provisioning a customer service rapidly and accurately
  • Scaling to keep up with customer demand
  • Tracking site-specific quality of service (QoS)
  • Troubleshooting and pinpointing problems in the network
  • Finding trained personnel with expertise in networking and MPLS technologies
  • Quickly accessing important troubleshooting details for monitoring the health and efficiency of devices and services

With the launch of Connectivity Services Director, all the aforementioned challenges are addressed within a single application.



So you have deployed Juniper's world class MX series of routers to be your Service Delivery Gateway (SDG)

Your business has grown, and you add more MX SDG's to manage the surge in demand.


With growth comes a dilema -


The number of services and configurations have increased exponentially. Configuration, Deployment and Management of IP services becomes dynamic, complex and error prone via CLI.


Fortunately, we, the NMS team at Juniper have  worked to preempt this situation! we have just the right solution for you -  The

Junos Space Edge Services Director!
