Verizon Unlocks the Power of Junos Node Slicing for its Multi-Services Edge

Verizon recently launched its multi-services edge (MSE), with Juniper playing an instrumental role in this groundbreaking new platform. Verizon’s MSE is SDN (software-defined networking) in action: it essentially “cloudifies” the network with an overlay of software control so that Verizon can operate the network more efficiently and respond to changes in the marketplace much faster. Juniper has applied its deep software expertise to provide disaggregation, automation, and virtualization to help bring Verizon’s new network architecture to market quickly, enabling Verizon to serve the rapidly evolving needs of their customers.

Embracing Digital Cohesion by Dealing with “Economics” Barrier

Embracing Digital Cohesion by Dealing with “Economics” Barrier

This morning while driving to work I started thinking about how Apple’s iPhone had captured the mobile market and displaced former leaders like Nokia and Blackberry. A similar analogy is how Netflix displaced top video rental stores like Blockbuster.  Both these companies have one thing in common: their ability to innovate. How did they manage to innovate?

 

Innovation comes from within. When employees start thinking about strategic business problems and work to find ways in solving those problems, that’s when magic happens. If there’s something we can learn from history, it’s that we need to innovate to stay relevant. Digital Cohesion ushers in an era of innovation and possibilities.

Juniper scores a 100% pass rate for automation

Juniper scores a 100% pass rate for automation

In a recent blog, the respected (and independent) industry veteran Ivan Pepelnjak summarised his requirements for automation that he’d include in a RFP. He identified 8 specific areas:

 

  • On-device APIs to read / write configuration and operational data
  • Structured operational data for easy analysis
  • Structured device config data for easy analysis
  • Atomic config changes to avoid partial updates
  • Config rollback to minimise risk
  • Full config replace that makes templates easy to use
  • Config difference analysis to simplify manual approvals
  • Industry standard data models for configurations

 

For each of the areas he summarized his view on how Juniper and some other vendors performed against these requirements. I was glad to see that Juniper scored 100%, the only vendor to do so.

 

How did other vendors do? Take a look at his blog here for more details
