Verizon Business Selects Juniper for Managed WAN Optimization Service

Verizon Business has selected Juniper Networks' WXC platform for a new Managed WAN Optimization Service.

Juniper's WXC platform can help distributed enterprises to accelerate application delivery over the WAN by recognizing and eliminating redundant transmissions; accelerating TCP and application-specific protocols; prioritizing and allocating access to bandwidth; and ensuring high application availability at sites with multiple WAN links. The WXC application acceleration platforms work end-to-end with a multitude of applications, including Web-based, client-server, custom software, voice and video. The platforms also include a broad set of management tools for monitoring and reporting on WAN and application performance.


  • In 2005, Juniper Networks acquire Peribit Networks, a developer of WAN optimization technology, for approximately $337 million in cash, stock and assumed stock options.
