At MWC (Mobile World Conference) 2014, Juniper announced an expanded SDN portfolio, as described in the link above, specifically targeting service provider operators to accelerate service creation and customised user experience.
Juniper Networks is expanding its SDN portfolio with new software and hardware to help service providers build high-IQ networks and cloud environments. These networks are secure, automated and scalable, enabling rapid service provisioning based on actionable intelligence. The new SDN solutions from Juniper — which will help carriers address impending 5G demands — reduce complexity, enable networks to securely and intuitively adapt to user preferences in real-time and make existing hardware more efficient and versatile. These innovations will enable service providers to:
- Automate network operations for simplicity and agility in response to dynamic service needs, while reducing operational costs – Using Junos Fusion software to control network devices from a single management plane.
- Scale the network infrastructure with silicon and SDN to deliver the performance and efficiency needed to economically meet demand – Using Juniper’s NorthStar Controller to manage traffic engineering and integration with WANDL.
- Create new customizable services rapidly using an intelligent and programmable network to increase revenue and brand equity – with new Junos Video Focus, Junos Subscriber Aware, Junos Application Aware and Junos Policy Control products available on the MX Series routers together with Juniper Networks Contrail, Firefly Perimeter and DDoS Secure.
