Juniper Networks is again at the cutting edge of the smarter society with its vMX – the revolutionary virtual routing for enterprise and service provider networks. In the Big Innovation Centre panel session at the Juniper Networks technology showcase in London on November 6th we heard from EDF Energy, The Guardian, D&B and Juniper Networks about how energy, finance, health, publishing – to name but a few industries – are transformed by the new digital alchemies.


Networks are our new general purpose technology connecting the innovation ecosystem, business models, cities and more. Their transformative power resembles that of the railways, electrification, mass production and the early days of the public Internet. What is different is that network solutions do not sit outside the cities, businesses and homes which adopt them; they inherently only co-exist within them. This puts co-creation and peoples’ connected ideas at the heart of a new type of intangible industrial revolution, in which data and information are our new water, steel, electricity and oil. Networks of businesses, banks and universities are collaborating to exploit hitherto unimaginable volumes of digital data, to generate the social engagement, jobs and wealth we thought we could only dream of. Everyone agrees that it’s time for the ‘have-nots’ to join in.
