I am very excited to announce Junosphere Classroom today – a new cloud-based service, designed for educational institutions to teach students and professionals networking concepts and protocols by providing a “hands-on” virtual experience.
Junosphere Classroom is our first service offering based on Junosphere, a new cloud environment that enables the creation and modeling of virtual networks and elements running the industry-leading Junos® operating system (OS). It enables students and professionals to gain hands-on experience in creating carrier-class network topologies, configuring Junos routers, and executing labs, all in a virtual environment.
This is a first for the industry and it showcases the kind of innovation that is possible at Juniper Networks. A huge number of Juniper Networks functions and departments came together to deliver this great product to our customers.
The networking industry often learns from the computing industry, and this is a great example of the use of virtualization and cloud technologies applied to a networking challenge. Junosphere Classroom gives you Junos on-demand, at scale, whenever and wherever you want it.
This revolutionary approach to teaching networking is fundamentally different from anything on the market today. We are excited to be the first to make its core OS available in a fully functioning virtual environment, where entire routers and networks can be created, modified and experimented with.
Please read the press release and see the materials posted to learn the specifics about Junosphere; below are some of my favorite sound bites to add more color:

This is just the beginning, and I am excited to hear more from you about your ideas on how to use this new service. Thanks for tuning in.
