Juniper Outlines Vision for the "New Network"

In what it describes as the most significant product and technology launch in its 12-year history, Juniper Networks unveiled new software, silicon, systems and partnerships designed to propel the "new network" for enterprise and service provider customers.


The launch event, which coincides with the Internet's 40th anniversary, outlines a future of networking that is open, scalable, simple, secure and automated to address the exploding scale of Internet services for personal and business productivity. Key elements of the Juniper launch include:

  • New Junos software: An open cross-network software platform that allows customers to directly program multiple layers of their networks for rich user experiences, smart economics and fast time to market. The new Junos software platform includes the popular Junos network operating system, the new Junos Space network application platform and new Junos Pulse integrated network client -- all built with the same core design principles, integration approach and development discipline.


  • New Junos-based silicon and systems: A new Junos One family of processors, including the Junos Trio chipset with revolutionary 3D Scaling technology. 3D Scaling enables networks to dynamically support more subscribers, services and bandwidth -- all at the same time. Junos Trio will be delivered in new modular line cards and new 3.5-inch routers for Juniper MX Series, providing two to four times faster throughput than the competition -- up to 2.6 terabits per second -- while using half as much power per gigabit2.The MX 3D products will offer the industry's first "universal edge" with 3D Scaling for delivery of business, residential and mobile services at massive scale on a single network.


  • New Junos-based solutions: Juniper unveiled new cloud networking and security solutions based on the Junos software platform and Juniper systems. The solutions are built upon Juniper's simplified data center network architecture to help customers share and secure their infrastructures while delivering and accessing cloud-based services.


  • New Junos-based partnerships: Juniper announced new go-to-market partnerships with Dell and IBM to deliver Juniper systems as part of their cloud-ready data center solutions. Juniper also announced its first-ever Junos software licensing partnership with Blade Network Technologies, which will develop future blade switches based on the Junos operating system. Juniper also announced several partners who have built or are building applications based on Junos software, including Active Broadband Networks, Ankeena Networks, Harris Stratex, Packet Design, Q1 Labs, Telchemy, Telecom Italia and Triveni Digital.


"Networks are now clearly the hub of business and community around the world, and that's driving massive scale requirements for the next decade," said Kevin Johnson, Juniper's chief executive officer. "Driven by our mission to connect everything and empower everyone, Juniper believes it's time for a new approach to networking. An approach based on smart systems and open software platforms. An approach that adapts to changing business dynamics. An approach that embraces partnership and unleashes innovation. Today is an historic day for Juniper, as we stand tall with our partners and customers to jumpstart the new network."http://www.juniper.net
