Juniper Networks’ releases new data fabric offering

02 Jul 2018

Juniper Networks has expanded its campus portfolio, including extending EVPN-VXLAN fabric to the campus, enabling a common architecture for campus and data centre fabrics by unifying disparate architectures.

Through this unification, Juniper Networks is providing the building blocks for an enterprise-wide fabric, a key component in building a simple, secure and automated multicloud.

Juniper also announced enhancements to its branch portfolio with new capabilities in its Contrail SD-WAN solution, utilizing NFX Series, SRX Series and vSRX Series WAN Edge devices combined with Contrail Service Orchestration.

Most enterprises have separate campus and data centre networks, leveraging entirely different architectures to provide connectivity across the two domains.

This leads to divergent operations, which inhibits enterprises’ attempts to unify their infrastructure under a common operational umbrella.

With Juniper’s new EVPN-VXLAN campus architecture, enterprises can build campus networks using the same protocols that are popular in the most stable and efficient data centres that exist today.

To facilitate the way customers can deploy their entire campus, Juniper has also expanded its campus portfolio via a reseller agreement with a global Wi-Fi leader, Aerohive Networks, and today announced the expansion of their strategic partnership to provide a cloud-managed, wired, wireless and WAN solution.

Juniper Sky Enterprise integrates with Aerohive’s Cloud Services APIs and Aerohive’s HiveManager Network Management System to provide a single pane of glass for monitoring the entire wired and wireless campus network.

The solution offers customers choice of deployment models – including public cloud, private cloud or on-premises.

Understanding that the branch is also an integral part of the customer’s journey to multicloud, Juniper is enhancing its Contrail SD-WAN capabilities with support for fine-grained Application Quality of Experience (AppQoE) and industry-first active-active clustering for Juniper’s NFX and SRX Series branch devices.

Juniper is also expanding its 5-step multicloud migration framework to include evolution paths for campus and branch networks.

The five-step multicloud migration provides enterprises with a set of best practices, natural technology insertions and recommended products and services to more easily complete the journey to a secure and automated multicloud.

“Today’s announced campus and SD-WAN enhancements allow enterprises to bring best practices from the data center into their campuses, allowing them to more quickly realize secure and automated multicloud environments,” says Juniper Networks cloud and enterprise marketing vice president Michael Bushong.

“The transition to multicloud doesn't have to be a long and drawn-out process. Through our 5-step multicloud migration framework, Juniper Networks is also providing enterprises the required building blocks that facilitate the transition and bring best practices to each stage along the way.”
