Juniper at OFC 2017: Cloud Business. Unconstrained.

by Juniper Employee ‎03-15-2017 03:04 PM - edited ‎03-21-2017 03:00 PM

At Juniper, everything we’re doing to bring packet and optical technologies together in new, innovative ways is designed to drive our customers’ cloud businesses forward—unconstrained by the status quo of vendor lock-in, network control silos, operational complexity and interoperability challenges.


Next week at OFC 2017, this theme is weaved throughout our product and solution announcements, demos, speaking gigs, technical submissions and Expo Theater 2 event.


Join us as we showcase our innovation and collaboration with partners and customers to build better cloud businesses.


Here are the highlights from Booth 3637 and throughout the venue:



Advancing Optical Interoperability in Open Networks

In an interactive forum, top experts from across the optical value chain—Telefonica, Facebook, Yahoo! Japan, Acacia, Lumentum, Fujitsu and Juniper—will discuss the current state and future direction of open, disaggregated and interoperable optical transport networks.



Greg Fish, Distinguished Engineer

 Dirk van den Borne, Architect Specialist

 Thomas Mueller, Director, Optical & Transport Network Architecture



Data Center Interconnect

Juniper MX, QFX and BTI series platforms working together to form a 200G-compliant DCI network, all managed by proNX Service Manager


Converged Metro Core

PTX3000 with integrated multi-terabit scale coherent WDM with Optical Supervisory Channel support


Multi-layer Coordination

YANG-based integration between proNX Service Manager and NorthStar Controller to achieve multi-layer control and optimization


Next-Generation Components

Exhibit of the most critical optical components advancing packet-optical networking at 400G and beyond. Join us for discussions and next steps in the advancement of MSA's including QSFP-DD and Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO)


Open Networking Initiatives

Exhibit of our leadership in open networking initiatives including Telecom Infra Project, OpenROADM, OpenConfig and OIF



Sponsored by Juniper, this dynamic program presents the inside perspective from service providers and network operators– their issues, drivers and how their requirements may impact the future of the industry.
