IBM and Juniper Tie Real Time Analytics to MX Routers

IBM and Juniper Networks are extending their longstanding partnership by announcing plans to provide real-time network analytics to help communications service providers (CSP) and enterprises become more agile and efficient, reducing time to deployment and cost, while enhancing end user application experiences.

The companies are designing a new solution in which Juniper Networks' MX Router Service Control Gateway (SCG) will integrate with IBM Now Factory analytics to enable the optimization of network operations, as well as the customization of service experience based on who is using the network and the applications being run, taking into account the device's capabilities and location.

"Integrating predictive analytics directly into the stream of data processing – and embedding it into the network of CSPs – will help to ensure the reliability of the network and improve customer engagement," said Bob Picciano, Senior Vice President, IBM Analytics. "Juniper Networks' focus on cloud-based analytics complements IBM's strategy to apply analytics capabilities to help organizations sense, predict and respond to opportunities."

Some highlights:

  • The combination of Juniper Networks MX Router SCG, Juniper Contrail and IBM Now Factory will allow for complete visibility of subscribers and VPN behaviors, for CSPs to offer scalable automated services based on actual data.
  • Juniper Networks will utilize IBM Analytics capabilities to better understand data flows and self-configure to automatically update and optimize network operations and the subscriber experience whether subscribers are watching videos or using business applications.
  • IBM Analytics capabilities, such as real-time and predictive insights, will also be integrated in Juniper Networks' Cloud Analytic Engine (CAE) and switching solutions to enhance the quality of experience and application performance by predicting and remediating anomalies such as latency before they occur.
