Earlier today, Juniper Networks introduced its Universal WAN solution, which changes the game for enterprises as they seek new flexible solutions to keep pace with the changing traffic patterns driven by rapidly growing mobile, video and cloud-delivered applications.
The Universal WAN is more than a point product solution – it’s an important step on the path to the complete new network. If the data center is the heart of the enterprise IT infrastructure, the WAN is the lifeblood of the enterprise.
The Universal WAN is a natural follow-on to our February QFabric™ architecture announcement, where Juniper Networks announced a solution to deliver a quantum leap in data center speed, scale, savings and simplicity to power the cloud computing era. With the performance of the data center now engineered for superior performance, the Universal WAN complements the QFabric architecture with exponential improvements in the wide area, including data center-to-data center connectivity to ensure applications can be as mobile as their users, and perform at the levels the enterprise demands.
Since the bottom line is always the top concern, the Universal WAN also gives network managers and architects the industry’s highest performance routing solution with pay-as-you-grow scalability. Comprised of new additions to the MX Series 3D portfolio, including the MX5, MX10 and MX40 – along with rapid setup capabilities for the SRX Series – the complete Universal WAN is powered by Junos® operating system that delivers superior manageability, operational simplicity and battle-tested resiliency.
Need power and headroom for growth? The MX Series packs the industry’s broadest bandwidth and throughput scalability – from 20 Gigabits per second in the new MX5 up to 2.6 Terabits per second in the MX960. And because requirements change as a business grows, the newest editions of the MX Series can scale up to the full functionality of the MX80 – the industry’s most powerful compact edge router – without a change in chassis using a software license upgrade.
we’re not talking about an untested platform: The MX Series 3D has been
shipping for over a year and the MX80 has already garnered industry accolades,
including the Best in Show at
and Light Reading’s 2010
Best New Telecom Product.
Combined with the newly enhanced SRX Series Services Gateways, which integrate branch routing capabilities and security simultaneously – and pack up to five times the routing capacity of the competition – the Universal WAN delivers the superior performance your business needs today while ensuring you can scale as you bring more applications onto your network down the road.
The new enterprise network is here, and it’s powered by Juniper Networks!
