Earlier this month, AT&T announced that they have selected Juniper’s Contrail Networking to manage their integrated cloud infrastructure with software defined networking (SDN) capabilities. We believe contrail Networking will transform the AT&T Integrated Cloud by providing the much needed scalability, performance, and resiliency required to deliver carrier grade services to tens of millions of users and hundreds of millions of end-points. As I reflect on this major win for Juniper, I can’t help but recognize and highlight the other major milestones we have achieved with Contrail.
There are many key drivers as to why customers choose to implement Contrail, Juniper’s Cloud Network Automation platform, into their network. Contrail Networking delivers:
Software delivered Networking Services like Switching, Routing, Security and Load Balancing at-scale
A fully automated solution that seamlessly plugs into most orchestration and billing solutions
Big Data Analytics built into the solution to provide rich monitoring and performance visualization of both Physical and Virtual elements
Reliability and Scalability of a carrier grade solution
An open environment that supports vendor-agnostic interoperability and customer driven customizations
With these innovative capabilities, Juniper is helping customers to dramatically simplify deployment and operations of their networks. While we can name many customers that have benefited from the product, there are a few that are delivering ground-breaking services to their customers like top security vendors – Symantec and AVG, world leading SaaS vendors - Workday and Lithium, and innovative NFV services from top Service Providers like NTT and OBS/France Telecom.
Each of these customers have scaled their deployment over the last 12-18 months and Contrail has proven successful in adapting to suit the needs of each of these private, public, or telco cloud requirements. These are just a few of the successes Contrail has seen within the industry, with many more fortune-100 customer projects in various stages of deployment and public disclosure.
It is important to recognize these special moments within Juniper, where our products are rapidly solving our customer’s needs and helping reshape the industry! Contrail is just one of the many exciting things happening at Juniper. Stay tuned to see what else Juniper has in store…
