Network Operating System Junos operating system is a reliable, high-performance network operating system for routing, switching, and security. It reduces the time necessary to deploy new services and decreases network operation costs. Junos offers secure programming interfaces and the Junos SDK for developing applications that can unlock more value from the network. Junos is one system, designed to completely rethink the way the network works.     One operating system: Reduces time and effort to plan, deploy, and operate network infrastructure.     One release train: Provides stable delivery of new functionality in a steady, time-tested cadence.     One modular software architecture: Provides highly available and scalable software that keeps up with changing needs. Running Junos in a network improves the reliability, performance, and security of existing applications. It automates network operations on a streamlined system, allowing more time to focus on deploying new applications and services. And it's scalable both up and down—providing a consistent, reliable, stable system for developers and operators. Which, in turn, means a more cost-effective solution for your business. SDN  Path Computation Client (PCC): PCC is an SDN technology available on the MX Router Series. PCC enables network programmability to allow IT managers to dynamically create optimal paths including slices, overlays or virtual paths, to optimize  on-demand bandwidth requirements.     Routers Learn more     Software Defined Networking Software defined networking (SDN) is designed to merge the network into the age of the cloud. This most recent evolution of the modern network promises to make the network more elastic, agile, and dynamic, to keep pace with today’s rapidly changing business demands. The promise of SDN can be fulfilled only if the right tools and technology are in place, so Juniper is delivering a comprehensive set of SDN products and solutions that are just that. They align with our 6-4-1 vision of SDN  that is based on 6 key principles of SDN, a 4-step evolutionary roadmap for SDN, and a new, single software-based SDN licensing model that you have to execute only once. To help you navigate our portfolio of SDN solutions, Juniper’s SDN products are organized by the four steps within the 6-4-1 framework. Step 1: Centralize Management Junos Space centralizes network management with a comprehensive solution that simplifies and automates management of Juniper’s switching, routing, and security devices. It is a critical component of our SDN strategy, providing a centralized management plane. Step 2: Extract Services Contrail is a key enabler of extracting network services from dedicated hardware appliances, by providing the dynamic service chaining capabilities that enable virtualized network applications to be connected in a logical, dynamic and customizable fashion. Step 3: Centralize Controller Contrail is a virtual network automation and orchestration platform that includes a logically centralized SDN controller that creates interfaces between cloud orchestration platforms and the virtual network, and also maintains the ephemeral state of the virtual network. Step 4: SDN Optimized Hardware Juniper’s network devices, including MX Series 3D Universal Edge routers and EX Series and QFX Series switches, support a range of open and programmable interfaces and APIs that make them ideal physical networking solutions for SDN.     Security Juniper delivers high-performance, scalable, and integrated solutions for securing networks, applications, and access to data across the entire enterprise network ecosystem. The portfolio is designed to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets. Juniper products and solutions comprise an integrative ecosystem where the network, applications, and access to data are tightly controlled and protected, yet responsive to business demands, such as new web application deployment, data center consolidation management, or a BYOD initiative. Secure Access: Unified policy management and orchestration for network applications and data access, including policy controls for all devices across a global enterprise network. Secure Applications: Advanced protection from application-related vulnerabilities and exploits, including web applications attack prevention and intrusion deception. Secure Networks: High-performance and scalable perimeter defense capabilities that protect both physical and virtual systems. Management and Intelligence: Comprehensive policy management across the security ecosystem, including log management and analytics from a single pane of glass     Software Identity and Policy Control We'll help you integrate subscriber privileges, application requirements, and business policies with the IP network infrastructure. End results? An improved end-user experience. Enhanced security. Lower operational costs. Junos Platform The Junos Platform is an open software platform for developing and running network applications. Multiple components give developers unmatched flexibility to create dynamic applications that interact with the network from the client to the cloud. Junos Space Network Management Juniper offers unified control of Juniper’s routing, switching, and security devices through our Junos Space network management software. By providing the SDN promises of centralized management, programmable network, and a common platform, you can automatically provision, monitor, and troubleshoot devices and services over their full lifecycle, thereby enhancing security and quality and improving overall efficiency. Junos Space Security Director Junos Space Security Director delivers a scalable and responsive network security management application that improves the reach, ease and accuracy of policy administration. It lets administrators more quickly and intuitively manage all phases of the security policy lifecycle through a single web-based interface. JunosV App Engine JunosV App Engine is a software virtualization program that extends Juniper systems by enabling the implementation of Juniper and third-party services that can optimize and monetize service provider and enterprise networks. Network Edge Services The new network is here. Voice, video, data, and multimedia services are converging, traffic growth is exploding, and you need an agile, efficient and service oriiented  infrastructure that is optimized for efficient scale, performance, and reliability. The Network Edge Services portfolio enabling services directly on MX 3D Series Universal  Edge Routers, which eliminates service specific appliances, layers of management and streamlines the operations environment. Network Edge Services radically improve the economics of service provider networks and speeds the pace of service innovation.     Switches Learn more     Time Synchronization TCA Series products deliver high precision, high bandwidth, carrier-class timing and synchronization required for the most time-sensitive applications in legacy and next- generation IP networks. With superior hardware based timestamping, TCA Series delivers wirespeed PTP with unparalleled accuracy. Time synchronization not only enables time-critical applications to be accurately deployed, it enables correct tracking of events. Such tracking is critical for audit, compliance, discovery, and general business applications where it is important to know the sequence of events. TCA Series products use standard time references, then distribute the information at wirespeed to precisely inform every location and device in your network of the exact time.     Wireless Learn more
