Products by Category      Data Center Switching Architectures Juniper Networks switching platforms can be deployed within multiple fabric architectures, allowing customers to address their current and future business needs while retaining complete investment protection. The Juniper switches are a key component of Juniper’s data center switching architectures, acting as flexible building blocks that can be used to support deployments that scale from dozens to thousands of ports, support the latest data center automation and orchestration tools and applications, and provide a solid foundation for software-defined networking. Working with Juniper routing, security, SDN and open ecosystem solutions, the data center switching architectures contribute to a simple, smart, and open MetaFabric data center architecture that accelerates the deployment and delivery of applications within and across multiple sites and clouds, improving time-to-value while maximizing the IT infrastructure’s value over time. Juniper’s data center switching architectures include Virtual Chassis and QFabric, which can scale from two to 128 nodes, as well as new and innovative Virtual Chassis Fabric technology. By utilizing open interfaces, Juniper switches also support additional fabric architectures such as Spine Leaf and Layer 3-based designs     Identity and Policy Control The new network must adapt in real time to end user and application requirements in order to offer high-value services for entitled users at an optimal network expense. Juniper Networks' identity and policy control portfolio provides the following key functionalities:     Collection of subscribers' access and application activation requests     Processing of requests based on subscribers' profiles (authentication and authorization)     Dynamic network configuration based on subscriber and application requests in real time     Tracking of subscribers' activity for accounting and reporting purposes     Mobile Infrastructure   The New Mobile Network The Challenge Today’s smartphone environment makes operating a mobile network very difficult:     Random events drive demand - no one could have anticipated a 352% increase in signaling traffic when Angry Birds added in-app advertising.     Open platforms, smartphones and the move to IP are exposing the network to more security threats than ever before.     Network Ops has always been about voice reliability, now it's data performance and subscriber trust. The mobile experience is the front line of brand management.     Legacy systems that are fundamental to operations slow down or block new innovations, making it difficult to create new revenue streams. The Solution: It’s Time for a New Mobile Network. The Bottom Line: The migration to IP and LTE is the opportunity to re-build mobile network infrastructure for the next decade. What’s needed is a new way to innovate securely while scaling capacity. Juniper’s backhaul, security, and packet core solutions don’t just adapt existing legacy circuit systems to IP – instead, they are designed from the ground up for an all-IP infrastructure. Build for today, and plan for tomorrow. With the industry’s first SDN-based infrastructure, Juniper delivers a mobile platform to enable rapid scaling and increased service velocity, while driving down operational and capital costs. Juniper's mobile infrastructure solutions delivery the mobile Internet today, and create a platform for future service creation through LTE and beyond. Backhaul: The flagship ACX Series router consolidates circuit and packet transport to a layer 3 IP transport with advanced timing that ensures superior service quality. Orchestrate the entire backhaul network from a single interface with Junos Space Network Services Activation Director. Security: The SRX Series is the industry-leading product that supplies comprehensive security that protects the packet core and access network. It can link to Juniper’s threat management system for an end-to-end security system. Value-Added Services (VAS) Complex: Juniper’s Service Delivery Gateway enables all network edge services to be consolidated into virtual machines driven by JunosV App Engine and operating on Juniper’s industry leading MX platform.     Network Edge Services Service Providers need agile network elements and architectures to respond to rapidly evolving business needs. Network operators typically deliver and monitor services with service-specific appliances in a static hardware-centric service model that adds cost, time, and complexity, to service delivery, especially as the subscriber base and traffic volumes grow. New services implementation is time-consuming and expensive because new vendors and new appliances must be qualified and integrated with the network architecture and with operational support systems. uniper Network Edge Services overcome these inefficiencies with a portfolio of licensed applications for Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers. Network Edge Services enable mobile and fixed service providers, and enterprises of all types to create more elastic networks and optimize network infrastructures with sophisticated monitoring and security. Juniper’s Network Edge Services also help network operators increase their agility and ability to rapidly deliver new services by leveraging their router investment for delivering new services     Network Management Junos Space is a comprehensive Network Management Solution that simplifies and automates management of Juniper’s switching, routing, and security devices. It is a critical  component of our SDN strategy by providing a centralized management plane for a single point-of-contact into the network and a common management platform for managing and creating applications that meet specific needs. Junos Space consists of a network management platform for deep element management, plug-n-play management applications for reducing costs and provisioning new services quickly, and a programmable SDK for network customization. Each of these components work together to deliver a unified network management and orchestration solution to help you more efficiently manage your network. The Junos Space Network Management Platform is designed for Service Providers and Enterprises. It provides broad FCAPS capability, same day support for new devices and Junos releases, a task-specific user interface, and northbound APIs to easily integrate into existing NMS or OSS/BSS deployments. Junos Space Management Applications extend the breadth of solutions to optimize network management for various domains.
