Coloclue Builds Next-Generation Network Platform with Juniper Networks’ NFV Solution

by Juniper Employee on ‎05-21-2017 04:46 AM


Risk free production network environments need to offer latest hardware and software technologies, and be supported by state- of-the-art testing technology that is scalable and flexible. 


One of our customers Coloclue, a non-profit, fully independent association of network specialists, partnered with us and Infradata B.V. to build out its next-generation production network, deploying Juniper Networks  vMX Virtual Router


Coloclue is operated entirely by volunteers, some working for global internet service providers (ISPs) and Web Hosting companies.


The organization will refresh its entire network environment with the vMX, a full-featured, carrier-grade virtual router. In support of this, Coloclue will deploy the vMX on the NFX250 Network Services Platform, and use the advanced automation features of Junos OS on their journey to create a Self-Driving Network, which is expected to reduce testing time and costs and free up staff for higher-value activities. Coloclue believed the deployment of vMX on the NFX250 provided it with the most cost-effective solution to refresh its network environment, thereby supporting the non-profit’s objectives.


Deploying Juniper’s vMX on the NFX250 Network Services Platform provides a high-performance, highly-automated and operationally-efficient network that will provide a high-performance production environment for Coloclue members. 

Members will also leverage the production network to test and troubleshoot new applications prior to roll-out. 


As Paul de Weerd, who is chairman at Coloclue, explains, “We had two significant requirements: to minimize our expenditure and maximize our investment in line with our non-profit organization objectives, and to meet the rigorous technical requirements of the engineers who will operate the network. Juniper Networks and Infradata understood our needs and provided us with a solution that delivers the best of both worlds.  Running the vMX on the NFX250 is exactly the right mix for us: it is a cost-effective solution that we believe provides the most advanced networking and automation functionality on the market.”


Juniper Networks’ partner for the Coloclue deployment is Infradata B.V, a leading independent network integrator focused on designing, securing, implementing and managing next-generation networks for telecommunications operators, service providers and enterprises with mission critical networks.
