Cheers to Juniper Networks, the latest software-defined networking (SDN) leader to join our network of SDN channels. The Juniper Channel is one of our new portals dedicated to specific SDN companies – giving you a one-stop hop for getting up to speed on products, projects, and technologies
Juniper believes in extending rather than marginalizing the knowledge of networking professionals and uses the channel on SDNCentral as a tangible way to share ideas with a focused group of people who also are working on the leading edge.
Containing educational videos, case studies, white papers, and current blogs, the channel naturally features information on Contrail, Juniper’s production-ready, commercial SDN offering. But perhaps more importantly, it serves as a valuable portal for OpenContrail, a new open source initiative based on the same software as the commercial offering.
As a company that firmly believes that open-source and open standards lead the way to greater levels of innovation, Juniper looks closely at the needs of its customers, the dynamics of the industry, and the ability to accelerate the market transition. Through experience, the company has come to believe that delivering a production-grade, scale-out networking stack as an open-source product will be a win-win for the market and Juniper.
The Juniper Channel provides an overview of OpenContrail, a software architect document on the initiative, blogs on current developments, and links to upcoming events. Creating a virtuous cycle of innovation and investment is one of the greatest things granted by broader SDN adoption. This is a concept Juniper stands behind.
Check out the Juniper channel today, and see what the open source community is saying. Come back regularly as we update the content and add videos on emerging SDN topics. You also can take a look at our other channels from Arista, Cisco, and Plexxi for their round-ups of practical SDN information and education.
