Juniper Networks has unveiled three new products designed to boost business agility and simplify network management. A massive spike in BYOD, mobile users and new enterprise application deployments has created network congestion and complexity. Compounded with the challenge of contracting IT budgets, these trends have severely restricted IT’s ability to quickly respond and maintain network reliability.
Many enterprises use single purpose legacy infrastructures, built in silos and defined by their location in the enterprise, that can’t keep pace with rapid changes in compute, storage and application requirements and often inhibit service delivery. In order to maximise delivery and availability of next-generation cloud services, server virtualisation and rich media applications, Juniper introduces a new agile, “programmable” network. This will enable network operators to respond to business changes and monitor and react to how the network meets application service level agreement (SLA) requirements in a matter of seconds, not days or weeks.
Juniper Networks has addressed these challenges with a series of new products for enterprise campus and data center infrastructures. The new Juniper Networks EX9200 Programmable Switch enables accelerated response to changing business needs, while its built-in ability to support a virtual WLAN controller, the Juniper Networks JunosV Wireless LAN Controller, will deliver high levels of reliability and flexibility across the enterprise to lower capital expense. The Junos Space Network Director provides a single-pane-of-glass network management solution for wired and wireless LANs and data centers, consolidating multiple management tools to simplify network operations and deliver a comprehensive advanced platform that prepares enterprises for tomorrow’s applications, services and workload demands.
Jonathan Davidson, senior vice president, Campus and Data Center Business Unit, Juniper Networks commented “It is critical for enterprises to design their infrastructure to adapt to emerging business requirements with programmable and flexible platforms. Juniper’s new EX9200 Programmable Switch, the virtualised JunosV WLAN Controller and Junos Space Network Director future-readies enterprises for adaptability and ultimately cost optimisation—a solution customers can buy today and that will grow with their needs over time.”
