A New Addition to the MX2000 Family

by Juniper Employee on ‎11-04-2016 02:26 PM

I am happy to introduce a new addition to the MX2000 Series family; the MX2008, which offers the ultra-high performance and density of the MX2010 in a space optimized form factor. 


A Physical Presence at MPLS SDN NFV World Congress 2016

by Juniper Employee ‎03-17-2016 03:29 PM - edited ‎01-11-2017 08:32 PM

Last week I had the pleasure to attend MPLS SDN NFV World Congress. Once again, the event brought together some exceptional people to discuss and debate some of the most critical issues in our industry.


Amid several virtual product demonstrations that kept the Juniper booth filled to capacity throughout the week, we also showcased the MPC9E line card for the MX2000 3D Universal Edge Router family.


The New Gold Standard MPLS Resource

 When experts hare their knowledge, we benefit twice: their experience guides our professional development, their sharing is a model to emulate. Today I turn the spotlight on two network and cloud experts who are sharing their know-how with the world, Antonio ‘Ato’ Sanchez-Monge and Krzysztof Grzegorz Szarkowicz.

The best presentations – and the best edge routers – tightly align with actual customer applications.


The Enduring Atlas: A Conversation with David Roy and Musings on the MX960

by Juniper Employee ‎12-16-2015 05:00 AM - edited ‎12-16-2015 03:14 PM

Several weeks ago, I exchanged emails with David Roy. David is a NOC Engineer at Orange France Telecom, and our discussion included a suite of MX Series 3D upgrades that were ultimately announced on December 8th.


During our conversation, David related that he was very lucky to join Orange France Telecom in 2006, because he immediately became involved in the ‘Atlas’ evaluation.


MX – The Juniper Swiss Army Knife for Mobile Networks

by Juniper Employee ‎12-15-2015 01:20 PM - edited ‎12-15-2015 01:59 PM

The role of the Juniper MX Series in mobile networking is analogous to a Swiss Army knife - a multi-disciplined tool ready to handle any problem or challenge put in front of it. It should come as no surprise to Juniper customers globally that MX is being compared to such a handy tool. Both the Swiss Army knife and the MX platform share common attributes including dependability, an excellent reputation, ease-of-use, and functional versatility. Specifically, the functional versatility of MX when used to create a consolidated solution can lead to significant CapEx and OpEx savings and new revenue-generating service opportunities for Mobile Network Operators globally.


I spoke with Jide Akintola recently; he is a former colleague that now is Head of Network Engineering and Design at TMX Atrium, a global provider of high-speed connectivity services to heavyweights in the financial services industry.  


During his tenure at Juniper, Jide consulted on many massive service provider projects, and he was also a resident engineer for several of our largest accounts. His experience covers routing, switching, security and software, and he maintains a broad set of JNCIE, JNCIS and JNCIP certifications, among many others.



The Global Internet Phenomena and the New Network Edge

by Juniper Employee ‎12-08-2015 01:40 AM - edited ‎12-16-2015 03:24 PM

The recent annual update to the Global Internet Phenomena highlights the extraordinary demands placed on the network edge, and underscores the necessity for high-scale, high throughput edge routers like the MX Series 3D.


Working with channel partners—an integral element of team Juniper—is a great part of my job. They have broad view of networking and communications technology, and deep insight into verticals and regions they support. While I’m brought into projects to lend MX Series support, I always learn new things, and I always come away the better for it.    


Redefining Routing with the vMX

by Juniper Employee on ‎11-06-2014 04:00 AM

Opportunities to redefine foundational elements of the network do not occur every day. But when they do, Juniper is typically at the forefront. From the introduction of the first carrier-grade operating system and line-rate routing platform through the first open, shipping SDN solution—Contrail—Juniper has an impressive history of innovation that has repeatedly redefined the network.


This legacy continues today with the introduction of the vMX - a virtualized MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router.


Let the Interns Lead Your Next Transformation

My last post highlighted some ~400-year-old insights of William Shakespeare on innovation systems. This (long overdue) post shifts to the opposite end of the spectrum to look at the innovation that will be driven by the youngest people in our industry: interns and graduates.


We all know that the world we live in never stands still, particularly in telecommunications. So, what should those just starting out in networking prioritise? Is it more important to learn about the way things are now or to focus on where things are headed? This is the challenge I set out to describe in my guest lecture at RMIT earlier this month. I wanted to capture the exciting changes that are happening in our industry but that leaves a lot of ground to cover.


My next few blog posts are focused on innovation systems. In this post I want to explore some 400-year-old insight that may change the way you think about innovation. It turns out that innovation is a human condition, but it can suffer greatly from the very efforts we use to codify it.


We live in an accelerating world. Breakthroughs in science and technology are occurring so frequently that they arrive already passé. Vast cultural changes are washing through every industry with organizations embracing new agile methods of building products and staying relevant. The traditional rules of business are collapsing with priorities shifting to competing fast versus slow rather than big versus small. These changes are vital and disruptive; the impact of the cloud-era has been unprecedented since the industrial revolution.


But knowing all of this doesn't help us navigate the future. As a consequence there are a range of new innovation systems and methodologies that are leading us forward. Well that's the hope...


Customer Experience Is The Future Of Business

by Juniper Employee ‎06-23-2014 12:16 AM - edited ‎06-23-2014 01:24 AM

Customer experience is the future of business. In our highly competitive world good customer experience improves the likelihood and magnitude of customer revenues. But how can we ensure good customer experience? And what does this mean in the context of rapidly advancing technology?


In this article I'll summarise some key findings from the recent Optus Vision event in Australia...


The 4G Cloud Is India’s First World Dilemma

by Juniper Employee ‎05-11-2014 07:53 PM - edited ‎05-12-2014 02:45 AM

Network operators in India find themselves in a diabolical situation. Operators are struggling with some of the lowest ARPUs in the world and a general lack of high-speed network infrastructure; they operate within 22 separate regulatory areas and compete for fragmented and expensive radio spectrum. The false start of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) and 3G rollouts several years ago have placed many operators in financial stress. Yet India Service providers must invest billions of dollars in new network infrastructure over the coming few years or India as a nation risks stagnating with aging, congested networks.


In fact, India doesn’t have much choice in the matter. The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) states that between the end of March and the end of June this year mobile Internet users in India will grow from 155 million to 185 million. That's 30 million new mobile Internet users within a 3-month period. Such phenomenal growth (greater than the entire population of Australia) will crush existing mobile networks that are already congested. India’s mobile networks must modernize or perish.
