I know what’s missing in your datacenter

by Juniper Employee ‎09-04-2016 04:45 AM - edited ‎09-04-2016 04:50 AM

That’s a big claim in what is a mercifully short blog.  The answer to my comment?




I am sure that as you research and look for ideas and solutions to your own Datacentre needs you see a number of claims and positions from just about every vendor.  Question is, what do you believe?


Just in time for VMworld, this certification underscores Juniper’s established and successful alliance with VMware to offer our customers the integration they need to succeed. As businesses continue to move to a Software-Defined Data Center model, compute, storage and networking capabilities are virtualized and tied together with orchestration software. With the Juniper-VMware solutions, we’re able to offer innovation for customers looking to achieve enhanced application agility for their cloud environments.

The growth of today’s enterprises requires network modernization tools that not only simplify and speed up business expansion, but also make it easier for employees to get their job done. But, the reality is that to-date there has been a lack of comprehensive, cutting-edge solution suites that can make this happen.


To enable digital businesses, Juniper has announced Cloud-Enabled Branch, our newest solution that allows organizations to get their new branch locations up and running anytime, anyplace.  The Cloud-Enabled Branch solution also helps businesses apply updates and security policies consistently across locations – so, a clothing retailer in Boise, Idaho has the same level of network security as the storefront in Tampa, Florida. Juniper is transforming how Enterprise customers manage service creation and delivery to the branch.


Routing Reflections @ IETF 96: A Routing AD's Perspective

by Juniper Employee ‎07-26-2016 01:37 PM - edited ‎07-26-2016 06:06 PM


This particular IETF was special since Juniper was the Host.  We are working on more engagement between the Open Source communities and the IETF.  The work on YANG models in the Routing Area continues.  OAM and telemetry were another focus.  I am pushing NVO3 towards a conclusion around the three different encapsulations (VXLAN-GPE, GENEVE, and GUE) that they've been considering.  In RTGWG, the discussion around how to handle IPv6 PA multi-homed networks (homes, small enterprises, etc) as requested in IETF 94 by v6ops continued.


SD-WAN is on fire! ...but is it enough to deliver growth?

by Juniper Employee ‎07-04-2016 11:55 PM - edited ‎07-14-2016 12:00 AM

Software Defined Networking (SDN) has been the the hot topic within network infrastructure industry for a few years now. We are now starting to see its influence not only in the data center, where SDN originated, but also within other areas such as core networks and enterprise services. Enterprise services is an area where SDN has real potential to impact services for end users.


Growth opportunities for service providers will come from selling other services (e.g. security) on top of a SD-WAN (especially to the under-served SME segment), and these should be delivered using SDN and virtual network functions. Only by offering additional services on top of SD-WAN will service providers be able to meet the customer requirements and grow their own business.


If I said that big projects have a lifecycle, I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised. It is pretty obvious that there are various phases to a big project: regardless of the terms you use, “getting ready” is certainly a different phase from “making it happen” which is different yet again from “using it”. Here at Juniper we use the terms “Plan,” “Build,” and “Operate” for the main phases. I have put together a short video that uses the Hubble Space Telescope as an example of the importance of each of those phases. Juniper Networks can provide you with Professional Services and support consultants to assist you in the planning, building, and operation of your project. 


I'm Spartacus

Spartacus poster.jpg

Few who have watched the film of the same name will forget the compelling scene towards the end where the group of captured slaves are asked to identify Spartacus from amongst them and one by one they memorably stand to each proclaim ’I’m Spartacus.’


Bear with me as I somewhat tenuously (for now) draw a parallel between that scene and the claims and cries of IT and Networking vendors as they all clamour to shout ‘I’m Open’


It seems as though ever since I was a young lad, vendors in the IT community have positioned themselves as “open”.  It could be argued of course that no one would ever claim they are closed and proprietary so the word open became almost the default or ‘safe harbour’ position.


This past fall, Juniper introduced a new Cloud CPE solution, an exciting new addition to our Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) portfolio. This new solution empowers service providers to simplify the service creation process, reducing the operation from months to minutes by completely automating the entire service delivery workflow.  Service providers can now introduce managed business services such as virtual CPE products, delivered on-premises or in the cloud, with a new level of speed and agility that greatly improves their value to enterprise customers.


Collaboration balanced with security - InfoSecurity Europe, 7-9 June 2016, London


In order to support multiple tenants on a physical server both virtualization and containers comes to the rescue. This blog discusses the following three different architecture models and compares the benefits and disadvantages of each of the model:

  1. Virtualization
  2. Containers
  3. Tenant aware application

Field trials of high density DWDM router interfaces

by Juniper Employee ‎05-27-2016 09:08 AM - edited ‎05-27-2016 02:41 PM

IMG_1395_roated_right.jpgOur customers have been carrying out field trials and deployments of our latest 100GE DWDM coherent interfaces. In this new generation, a CFP2-ACO [1] module containing the tunable coherent optics plugs into an MX MIC or a PTX PIC containing the DSP, framer/deframer and FEC encoder/decoder.

From combating ransomware to managing credentials to overseeing system migrations, IT teams at small and mid-market companies have a lot on their plates – and too few resources. When it comes to provisioning networks, the hardware choices can be overwhelming, especially when all switches look more or less the same.


So what makes one box better than any other?
