The White House is considering imposing tariffs on China-origin products. These potential tariffs could apply to a number of Juniper Networks products. We are aggressively implementing mitigation measures to minimize the impact of such tariffs as much as possible, however, we intend to pass along any unmitigable portion of such tariff burden as additional import taxes to our customers for shipments into the U.S.
Juniper Networks announced today an extended and strengthened partnership with Ericsson to offer a powerful, end-to-end solution as operators worldwide race to build 5G networks. Juniper products and solutions will now have unprecedented customer reach combined with the go-to-market muscle of the two companies.

While some view 5G as a solution for this difficult environment, not all 5G solutions are engineered equally. Juniper has teamed up with Ericsson to offer network service providers a complete solution, from radio access network (RAN) to core and cloud that will help ensure that the promise of 5G lives up to its potential.
