In a world of digital transformation, Enterprises are increasingly more dependent on technology and WAN connectivity for success. As Service Providers look to better meet Enterprise customer requirements, they may find that the lessons learned in a recent home computer project, just might help them to better support their Enterprise customers and simplify their network as well.
Is your network built for the demands of 5G, IoT and emerging mobile applications? Is infrastructure complexity hindering your “agility” to respond? Perhaps it’s time to rethink your network infrastructure and its operations.
Think about how you interact with a digital assistant on your smartphone – whether it’s Siri, Alexa, Cortana or Google Assistant – and trying to play Rolling Stones on your new wireless speaker while you’re cooking dinner. Instead of manually opening the music app, searching for that particular artist and song, pressing play and double-checking to ensure you’re playing it through the right speaker, you can now just tell your device to “play Rolling Stones in the kitchen,” and your device should do the rest.
Juniper recently introduced the concept of cloud-grade networking—a holistic end-to-end network architecture that combines the operational principles of the cloud with intelligent IP attributes. This innovative approach extends across network domains, enabling service providers, mobile operators, cloud providers, and cable operators to improve the user experience and rapidly introduce innovative new industry- or vertical-specific services.
One of the key underlying technology enablers for cloud-grade networking is Junos® OS, a pioneering operating system that powers Juniper’s broad portfolio of physical and virtual routing, security, and switching products. Today, we are pleased to announce a new addition to the Junos product family: Junos Node Slicing, an innovative approach to network convergence and optimization.
