Juniper Joins the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP)

by Juniper Employee on ‎06-19-2017 11:56 AM

At Juniper, we create state-of-the-art technologies that help our customers connect their ideas, compete, and thrive in an ever-changing world. While our innovative product and services portfolio evolves continuously, we remain committed to helping our customers improve the economics of networking with open and interoperable solutions that enable them to automate and create at scale, with agility.

In keeping with these core values, we recently joined the Linux Foundation’s Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) project.  The ONAP project unites two major open networking and orchestration projects, open source ECOMP and the Open Orchestrator Project (OPEN-O).  

The ONAP project community — which includes some of the largest network operators — is working to deliver a neutral automation platform for network, infrastructure and services across service providers, cloud providers and enterprises in today’s software-defined, virtualized era.

Our membership in ONAP reinforces our commitment to open and interoperable solutions, and we look forward to working with within the ONAP project community to deliver a unified architecture that will allow end users to design, orchestrate, automate and manage services and virtual functions.  We are excited to be part of an effort that promises to provide customers with rapid, agile service delivery options that will maximize their infrastructure investments and help them increase their profitability and competitiveness.
