Blockchain Use Cases for IoT Security -2.jpg

 I hope you’ve enjoyed my previous blog (Part 1 of a mini-series on Blockchain for IoT Security) to get familiarize with the key attributes of blockchain. In this blog, my attempt is to explain what IoT security use cases that blockchain can address, via which attributes.


MEC Congress - Sponsoring Banner.jpg

 This year, MEC Congress will take place at the Hotel Palace Berlin in Berlin, Germany from September 25th-27th and Juniper will be there once again with a big presence as a Silver Sponsor. The show’s theme “Pushing Power to the Network Edge”, is attracting many of the industry’s top edge computing experts – from large enterprises, mobile network operators, web companies, and HW/SW vendors - to spend three exciting days together discussing the development of one of the hottest topics in the networking industry!


The challenge facing media and broadcast organisations across the world is how to take advantage of new digital platforms, content and technology effectively, to diversify their businesses, compete with new media and create new revenue streams. Coupled with audience demands for the highest quality viewing resolution, the trend towards more and more live event broadcasts, and the need to save time and money on production, media organizations are facing a testing time.


RSVP-TE Pop&Go: Using a shared MPLS forwarding plane

by Juniper Employee ‎09-13-2017 09:48 PM - edited ‎09-17-2017 08:23 PM

RSVP-TE is a widely-deployed control plane protocol that is used to setup Label Switched Paths and provides a rich feature set for TE - protection, bandwidth admission control, priority and preemption. RSVP-TE Pop&Go LSPs couple the rich feature richness of the RSVP-TE control plane with the simplicity of the Segment Routing MPLS forwarding plane. In this blog, we introduce concepts to manage the forwarding plane state scale, improve system performance and to further decouple RSVP-TE from any limitations of the forwarding plane hardware. 


Attributes of Blockchain.jpg

Blockchain, or distributed ledger technology (DLT), has become one of the hottest buzz words in recent years. With the rise of IoT (Internet of Things), many enthusiasts believe that Blockchain will be able to solve the security challenges for IoT. If you search on the web, you can find tons of statements like “Blockchain will revolutionize IoT Security”, “Blockchain can change the future of IoT”, “Blockchain will be ultimate game-changer for IoT security”, “Blockchain is the future of IoT”, etc. So it’s fair to ask, is it just hype? Or real? Why and how?


Since cybersecurity has been the #1 issue on the Educause Top 10 IT issues list for last two years, I thought I would highlight how we can secure the Connected Campus


Cybercrime is a massive, organized business that generates over $2 trillion a year and higher education institutions are among the many daily targets.  Colleges and universities need to think differently about security and consider a new “degree option” – a program in which all of your network components are orchestrated into an end-to-end defense domain. 


At Juniper, we call this Software-Defined Secure Network or SDSN.  SDSN is a unified cybersecurity platform that transforms every network component into an enforcement point, making them an integral part of the security umbrella.  The SDSN platform will equip the campus IT teams with centralized policy and control, raising threat intelligence across the entire infrastructure enabling real time analysis and dynamic enforcement.


The Connected Campus built on SDSN will:

  • Simplify multivendor security environments, increasing efficiency in the event of a breach.
  • Provide tools that deliver meaningful insights so security experts can do their jobs more effectively.
  • Rapidly defend your institution from unknown or hard-to-detect malware such as ransomware.
  • Deploy efficiency with script-building services for installation, upgrades, configuration, and monitoring.

If it is connected, it can be infected.  Nowadays, everything in our colleges and universities are connected. Let us work together to manage the security sprawl with a unified cybersecurity platform that dynamically provides automated enforcement and distributed containment.  Powered by automated remediation, real-time intelligence, and machine learning, your connected campus will know when and how to defend your institution’s students, faculty, staff and intellectual properties.

At Juniper we believe these technological developments, combined with changing user expectations, competitive pressures, and new economics, are ushering in a new era – the age of digital cohesion – a future in which applications connect and self-assemble to deliver compelling mega-services that enhance our lives.


There are opportunities for service providers to play a starring role in the era of digital cohesion. Discover what those opportunities are and the network architecture requirements needed to thrive in the new era of mega-services ...

Welcome to part 3 of our multi-part blog series on Blockchain - see part 2 here.


When any new technology emerges, particularly a technology such as Blockchain that many are predicting will ultimately lead to a fundamentally new kind of internet, our customers ask us some form of, “why should we care?”


Our philosophy is to connect everything and empower everyone. This is why we support events like SHA2017 and CCC, that bring together industry experts in the field to build networks and share insights


In today’s evolving business climate, companies of all types—service providers, cloud providers, and enterprises—are building more than just a network.  In fact, the network itself is merely a means to an end—an enabler for network services and a conduit through which applications pass.  In other words, the network is a platform that drives the business.


Clouds Begin with Platforms 

Let’s extrapolate this concept out further.  I look at every element within the network as if it is a platform, too:  hardware is a platform for software; software is a platform for network functions; the network is a platform for the cloud; and the cloud is a platform for applications that are the backbone of the cloud economic model.
