According to a recent survey of network operators, Juniper Networks is first in technology innovation. We’ve challenged the status quo since our inception in 1996 by leveraging our engineering talent to solve our customers’ toughest problems. By simplifying the different layers of a router into management, control, and forwarding, we pioneered “software-defined networking” many years before the term became popular. In 2011, we introduced the PTX converged supercore router, which shaped architectural decisions for service provider core networks around the globe. Importantly, Juniper is committed to open innovation.
