Speeds and Feeds are Boring - Until You Have Service Downtime

by Juniper Employee ‎05-17-2017 05:34 AM - edited ‎05-19-2017 07:38 AM

For most people speeds and feeds are boring.

 

You may be thinking that that’s a bold statement from someone at Juniper Networks – a company built upon high performance routing. So, why did I include High Performance in the four network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance)?

Speeds and feeds may be boring for most people, but they are essential and must not be overlooked.

Change is the Enemy of Security Operations. How Can You Embrace Change?

by Juniper Employee ‎05-17-2017 05:33 AM - edited ‎05-19-2017 07:38 AM

In this third blog of the series on networking essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I look at the necessity of being secure.

Most businesses have come to know that they need to keep data and systems secure. So why is cybersecurity such a hot topic right now?

 

In my view, it is due to the increased value of data and the consequent risk from it being exposed.

Everyone Loves Open, But What I Really Want is Choice

by Juniper Employee ‎05-17-2017 05:33 AM - edited ‎05-19-2017 07:41 AM

In this second blog of the series on the network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I take a look at Open.

There are many benefits of an open network, but they all come down to enabling great choice of technology for enterprises.

 

No single technology supplier will ever meet all of your enterprise requirements. Every business uses a multi-vendor approach and the only way for this to be successful is to embrace an open approach whenever possible, so that diverse technologies can work together effectively and easily.

The history of IT is closely aligned with automation, from the early computers such as the Enigma Machine to the latest machine learning tools enabling use cases such as automated cancer diagnosis. All of these take tasks that a human can do, but by automating them, it allows people to focus upon higher value work.

 

If we look at networking, automation is at the heart of many recent trends such as SDN (i.e. automating network control) and NFV (i.e. automating the delivery of specific functions which used to be run on dedicated appliances).

 

But, automation is not the only essential within a network.

The Magic of NFV through Cloud CPE—Now with SD-WAN Functionality

by Juniper Employee ‎06-28-2016 07:58 AM - edited ‎01-11-2017 09:28 PM

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.

Juniper Networks Announces Virtual MX

by Juniper Employee ‎11-14-2014 11:25 AM - edited ‎11-17-2014 04:49 AM

On Thursday 6th November 2014, Juniper Networks launched the virtual MX (vMX) router. The vMX is a Virtualised Network Function (VNF) that has been developed directly from the software that runs on the Juniper Networks MX router. As a result, the vMX benefits from the extensive feature set, which has been developed on the MX over a seven-year period, contributing to making it the world’s first full-featured virtualized carrier-class router.

 

The vMX complements the existing MX product line. The MX portfolio includes the 80 Terabit MX2020 Router, supporting multiple 100 GE interfaces, to the much smaller (8.9 cm high) 80 Gigabits MX5 optimised for lower density 1 GE and 10 GE solutions.

The Emerging Moral Obligation You Have to People Like My Mum

by Juniper Employee ‎11-13-2014 06:00 AM - edited ‎11-13-2014 06:02 AM

We are all familiar with performance standards such as five-nines. But in our world of interconnectedness real people with real emotions are dependent on what we do day in and day out. In this article I explore the emerging moral obligation the technology world has to these "real" people.

Without the invention and innovation of humans where would we be? But we, as humans, can also be a liability and nowhere is this more obvious than in the complex networks so crucial to our everyday lives. But, as complexity increases, there is a way to exploit the power of the human mind and overcome the frailty of human nature when it comes to repetative high volume low-end yet critical tasks. If you want to skip this blog and find out more you can directly download a two-sides of A4 paper that will tell you more. Alternatively, read on ............

We all like to consider ourselves independent spirits and most of us hate the notion that our behaviour can be mapped onto a process; that, in some way, we are predictable. Take two of my friends, they instinctively behave in different ways yet each trait can be identified as part of a proven process that leads to improved and more stable networks. I reveal all in the blog below.

Do Networks Mimic Mother Nature?

by Juniper Employee ‎05-15-2014 09:39 AM - edited ‎05-22-2014 04:30 AM

Look around you and you'll see numerous examples of cycles. Some are natural, some are man made but all are intrinsic to the environment they exist in.

 

Cycles have their origin in nature but you'd be surprised how relevant they are to successful networks. I explore this a little further in my blog.
