Change Need Not Be Disruptive

by Juniper Employee ‎11-24-2014 07:36 AM - edited ‎11-24-2014 01:09 PM

We humans despise change, new place, new job, new friends always give fright. But sometimes we have to go through the change process, one such event is the virtualization wave sweeping through the networking world. Service providers having to manage the unprecedented growth of traffic in their network and the need from their customers to enable customizable services are planning to virtualize certain network functions including edge routing, mobile packet core, IMS and such.

 

Even though this change is inevitable, it does not have to be painful. This is one of the key differentiators for the recently launched vMX platform from Juniper Networks. vMX is the virtualized version of the industry leading edge routing platform, running the virtualized control plane (Junos) and virtualized forwarding plane (Trio PFE). This approach provides a consistency in operation from physical to virtual environment so that operators do not need to get trained on new operating system and utilize the familiar processes to configure and manage the hybrid (virtual + physical) networks.

 

vMX was launched at Juniper’s EMEA AR/PR summit on November 6th. Stuart Borgman ran the demo of vMX to highlight some of the key value propositions, you can watch the recorded version of the demo to appreciate the fact that indeed change can be non-disruptive.
