Developer to the Core

Why Does Juniper Care about Developers?

Juniper = Networking, right? Well, that's not quite true anymore.


Juniper still offers lots of great networking equipment, but we've also been growing our software offerings for the past few years (albeit a bit quietly) and this year at JavaOne we really wanted to showcase what we're doing.


No longer does Juniper only = Networking, but Juniper also = better web applications for developers.


Predictable, reliable end-to-end network behavior over a wide range of operating conditions and constraints is the new ingredient brand, much as "Intel Inside" defined the corresponding PC attributes through the explosion of desktop computing.  You need the network exposed such that it can be smarter about your code, and your code can optimize its use of network resources.


That's our goal of making the New Network programmable - it makes applications aware of the network and the network aware of its set of applications.  And along the way, it may make IT and development better friends.
