12 Use Cases of MX for service providers

by Juniper Employee ‎12-10-2015 07:17 AM - edited ‎11-17-2016 10:10 PM

The MX series’ initial use case was Carrier Ethernet but it didn’t take long for its use cases to expand to a large number of applications, thanks to the consecutive improvements in software and hardware.

 

Fixed telecom operators are using the MX series in many critical parts of their networks to satisfy their most demanding needs for business success. This blog lists the top twelve use cases for MX!

I visited Iceland for the first time a couple of weeks back. What a fascinating country, and completely different from places that I have seen in Europe. Iceland has got a great advantage of natural resources such as geothermal energy, natural air cooling and water, which the nation take big benefits from. From small businesses to large ones, they are aware of the unique natural gift they have got and are using it very effectively, reducing their energy costs. This positions the country as a sustainable, green location for data centers with zero-carbon footprint!

Change Need Not Be Disruptive

by Juniper Employee ‎11-24-2014 07:36 AM - edited ‎11-24-2014 01:09 PM

We humans despise change, new place, new job, new friends always give fright. But sometimes we have to go through the change process, one such event is the virtualization wave sweeping through the networking world. Service providers having to manage the unprecedented growth of traffic in their network and the need from their customers to enable customizable services are planning to virtualize certain network functions including edge routing, mobile packet core, IMS and such.

 

Even though this change is inevitable, it does not have to be painful. This is one of the key differentiators for the recently launched vMX platform from Juniper Networks. vMX is the virtualized version of the industry leading edge routing platform, running the virtualized control plane (Junos) and virtualized forwarding plane (Trio PFE). This approach provides a consistency in operation from physical to virtual environment so that operators do not need to get trained on new operating system and utilize the familiar processes to configure and manage the hybrid (virtual + physical) networks.

 

vMX was launched at Juniper’s EMEA AR/PR summit on November 6th. Stuart Borgman ran the demo of vMX to highlight some of the key value propositions, you can watch the recorded version of the demo to appreciate the fact that indeed change can be non-disruptive.

 

20 Years of Networking Innovation on a USB stick

by Juniper Employee ‎11-19-2014 12:39 AM - edited ‎11-19-2014 06:18 AM

I was lucky enough to be one of the people attending the Juniper Networks Launch Event on the 6th November 2014 in London at which we announced key new enhancements to the portfolio, including the Virtual MX Router, the worlds’ first carrier grade virtual router and Contrail Cloud, a reference architecture for NFV deployments.

 

As I sat listening to both Juniper and non-juniper people present, I started thinking about how you could represent what we were saying and launching within the 140 character limits of twitter, which as always forces you to summarise!

 

In the end, the tweet I sent out was the following and for me it helped summarise for me, what in my career at Juniper I have seen us do time and time again, we bring the future into focus.

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.

Time for innovation in MPLS, IPv6 and SDN?

by Juniper Employee ‎03-12-2013 01:09 AM - edited ‎03-12-2013 04:38 PM

Looking at the MPLS & Ethernet World Congress agenda, I’m still amazed how after 15th years our industry can still innovate in this area. Well, the (L)abel (S)witching basis of MPLS remain the same but the (M)ulti(P)rotocol piece is, after 15 years, it is much more important now, than ever before. It’s not just IPv4 or IPv6 over MPLS. In fact is not even IP or packets, but also circuits over MPLS. It is also fascinating how over the 15 years MPLS has been here to solve different problems: ATM transport, IP VPNs, Carrier Ethernet, Multicast, Data Center and Cloud connectivity, mobile networks... and now MPLS is getting ready for SDN.
