NorthStar Controller provides you the visibility you need for your transition to SPRINGNorthStar Controller provides you the visibility you need for your transition to SPRING
Over the last few years, there have been many ways to incorporate SDN into your network. One of the latest SDN introductions for the WAN is Source Routing in Packet Networks, or SPRING Routing introducing the next generation application driven network technology. There has been rapid adoption of this technology from companies such as Microsoft, AT&T, and Softbank. Juniper Networks NorthStar Controller provides a streamlined solution to transition your network from Resource Reservation Protocol or RSVP TE to SPRING.


Speeds and Feeds are Boring - Until You Have Service Downtime

For most people speeds and feeds are boring.


You may be thinking that that’s a bold statement from someone at Juniper Networks – a company built upon high performance routing. So, why did I include High Performance in the four network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance)?

Speeds and feeds may be boring for most people, but they are essential and must not be overlooked. 


In this third blog of the series on networking essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I look at the necessity of being secure.

Most businesses have come to know that they need to keep data and systems secure. So why is cybersecurity such a hot topic right now?


In my view, it is due to the increased value of data and the consequent risk from it being exposed.


Everyone Loves Open, But What I Really Want is Choice

In this second blog of the series on the network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I take a look at Open.

There are many benefits of an open network, but they all come down to enabling great choice of technology for enterprises.


No single technology supplier will ever meet all of your enterprise requirements. Every business uses a multi-vendor approach and the only way for this to be successful is to embrace an open approach whenever possible, so that diverse technologies can work together effectively and easily.


The history of IT is closely aligned with automation, from the early computers such as the Enigma Machine to the latest machine learning tools enabling use cases such as automated cancer diagnosis. All of these take tasks that a human can do, but by automating them, it allows people to focus upon higher value work.


If we look at networking, automation is at the heart of many recent trends such as SDN (i.e. automating network control) and NFV (i.e. automating the delivery of specific functions which used to be run on dedicated appliances).


But, automation is not the only essential within a network.


An Intro to RSVP-SPRING Coexistence

There's been considerable industry interest surrounding SPRING, also known as Segment-Routing.  Many operators are incorporating SPRING technology into their networks currently running RSVP-TE.  In some cases, the objective is to migrate all services to utilize SPRING-based LSPs.  In other cases, there may be a need to manage some application traffic over RSVP-TE LSPs in conjunction with applications using SPRING-based LSPs.  In either case, there is a need to manage traffic and capacity across both the RSVP-TE and SPRING domains.  While there are a range of options for managing through this period of network transition, all carry varying tradeoffs.  An overview of these options is captured within this IETF draft.


Physical Servers to Virtual Servers to—Now—Serverless

While participating in the AWS Summit in San Francisco few weeks back, I was amazed at the number of new AWS services available for developers to build their cloud applications. I also noticed a trend toward “serverless” computing discussed at many of the AWS sessions, including talks by AWS CTO Werner Vogels and AWS CEO Andrew Jassy.
