Carrier Grade SD-WAN

by Juniper Employee ‎01-04-2017 10:39 AM - edited ‎01-11-2017 09:34 PM

SD-WAN has been a hot topic during 2016. The promise of cost savings and simplicity have generated a lot of interest among enterprises and numerous verticals.The risk of revenue cannibalization of existing services (aka IP-VPN) forces Communication service providers (CSPs) to redefine their strategy. They are in a unique position to offer SD-WAN with Carrier Grade attributes.




A Bold New Business Network - Five Tenets from Forrester

by Juniper Employee ‎12-20-2016 12:00 PM - edited ‎01-06-2017 11:18 AM


Juniper Networks working in lockstep with our customers has developed a platform empowering flexible service delivery and automation across the service lifecycle. Juniper Cloud CPE is an end-to-end architecture that addresses the tenets outlined by Forrester’s Five Virtual Network Infrastructure Tenets.  Learn more about how Verizon and Juniper are deliver on these tenets today.



Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) plays a key role in connecting enterprise branch-offices to each other and to Public and Private Clouds. It also offers the ability to offload traffic directly to local Internet connections, which optimizes the use of WAN connections.


What is the role of network Service Providers when all enterprise traffic goes to public clouds?

Do you like games? I sure do!

How about a game of Scrabble? Who could turn that down!

When given a letter, do you let your imagination run wild? Sure you do!

Well, let’s start with the letters of “S” and “D” and combine that with WAN – What does that spell?


Hmm… Let your imaginative mind think for a moment. Okay, Ready Set GO!


Juniper Networks Wins MEF 2016 Excellence Award!

by Juniper Employee ‎11-15-2016 08:59 AM - edited ‎12-07-2016 05:12 PM



I’m proud to share the great news that Juniper Networks has won the MEF 2016 Excellence Award as the winner of Third Network Technology Solutions Multi-Vendor Innovation of the Year! This is the 2nd year in a row that we have won this award! The honor was presented at the MEF Excellence Awards Dinner at the Hilton Baltimore as part of the MEF16 global networking conference last week, which had 1,200+ attendees from service providers, government, analysts and technology vendors.


Last week, we had a blast attending OpenStack Summit, and we hope you did too! One theme that we saw, and resonated with, from day one of the summit was Interoperability. The basis of OpenStack, and its interoperability, is openness: open source, open community, open development, and open design. OpenContrail, a plug-in for OpenStack Neutron, shares this foundational element.


Enterprise SD-WAN Adoption

by Juniper Employee ‎10-29-2016 12:48 AM - edited ‎01-12-2017 01:17 AM

According to a recent Kable Global ICT Customer Insight study, 58.5% of Enterprises globally plan to adopt SD-WAN within the next two years. And IDC, estimates that worldwide SD-WAN revenues will exceed $6 billion in 2020 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 90% over the 2015-2020 forecast period.


But, how are enterprises going to adopt SD-WAN?

From higher performance optimization to seamless orchestration and a reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO), customers (telco or cable operators, enterprises or SaaS/IaaS providers) are making their requirements for advanced networking capabilities clear. As these customers continue to adopt virtualized (and containerized) applications as well as virtualized network functions (VNFs), Juniper Networks is delivering sophisticated and comprehensive networking capabilities within its Contrail product family to address these needs around the globe. In an effort to enable even greater performance for cloud workloads, we are collaborating with Netronome, a leading provider of high-performance intelligent networking solutions.


From Bring-your-Own-Bottle to Bring-your-own-Broadband

Have you heard about the corkage fee in some restaurants? In the same way restaurants provide a table and the service but have a corkage fee to serve your bottle, Service Providers can provide a CPE and charge you for the SD-WAN service over your own broadband connections.





Everyone’s head is in the cloud; but no one’s thinking about the underlay network that enables it. In reality, both the underlay network, as well as the quality are both crucial to building cloud-enabled infrastructure. Hear from one of our customers, and OpenContrail Advisory Board Member, Jakub Pavlik from TCP Cloud (recently acquired by Mirantis), how he leveraged a strong underlay, with a strong, open overlay network for the most robust cloud solution.


SD-WAN: Expectations vs Reality

Many enterprises are attracted by the promise of huge cost savings by SD WAN compared to MPLS. A recent qualitative survey among enterprises showed interesting results: Expectations vs Reality of SD-WAN


SD-WAN, NFV's best friend

by Juniper Employee ‎10-10-2016 11:38 AM - edited ‎01-11-2017 08:46 PM

Most SD-WAN implementations are based on a small physical CPE with multiple network interfaces. Technically, a virtual or a physical CPE implementation works fine, and when cost is the main requirement, the physical platform tends to win.


Why SD-WAN should be implemented using NFV?

With the fast adoption of SD-WAN, many SPs are trying to understand their role in future enterprise connectivity. Will MPLS IP-VPN be completely replaced by SD-WAN? Will SPs become simply low-cost undifferentiated capacity?
