Mobility, big data, and cloud computing are economic growth engines changing business models everywhere. To capitalize on the rapidly evolving landscape, businesses need to harness these new technologies to drive expansion, improve efficiencies and increase profitability – they need an underlying network that can enable them to quickly tap into their potential and capitalize on global business opportunities. This is the promise of software-defined networking (SDN).
Juniper Networks has been focused on network innovation, delivering the solutions that help transform the experience and economics of networking to match the fast-paced world of all the devices, services and applications it must support. To share what they see as the possibilities and realities of the “New Network,” Juniper has launched a new Channel on SDxCentral. Having spent some time at Juniper during my career, I am personally excited about the Juniper Channel and thrilled to see their progress in the SDN and NFV space. (Check out their latest announcement on their new MetaFabric and their demo on how Juniper and Cloudscaling are working to deliver turnkey SDN cloud solutions with network virtualization and orchestration.)
A Channel on SDN is designed to help educate the market on the different viewpoints and approaches of key vendors via insights from their leaders (such as Kireeti Kompella from Juniper) and specifics on their vision, products, and services. An SDN Channel is a curated space that includes both original SDxCentral content, as well as non-SDxCentral content to help prospective customers, resellers and service providers learn about the featured company’s SDN and NFV activities.
The Juniper Networks Channel promises to offer real-world experiences with videos and case studies from customers and partners who are using Juniper’s new networking technologies to evolve their data center architectures and drive their businesses forward. The Juniper Channel also provides the latest details on Juniper’s SDN offerings, Contrail and OpenContrail, and shares how customers are starting to deploy these solutions to realize the benefits of SDN. Namely, how the technologies of the New Network are delivering:
- High Performance — to meet the demands all the different users, devices, services, and applications placed on the network and ensure customers have the control they need to achieve a predictable, high-quality experience.
- Flexibility — to change the network on demand and make adjustments based on what is actually happening within the network.
- Openness — to ensure customers can take advantage of all that the members of the broad ecosystem have to offer.
To learn more, visit the Juniper Networks Channel on SDxCentral and see the new featured video to learn what the vice president of software standards and cloud labs for IBM, the chief technology officer for ISPRIME, and the senior network architect for Jaguar Network have to say about the future of networking. It’s just a taste — there’s only more to come!
