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 maximize delivery and availability of next-generation cloud services, server virtualization 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.

Its new offerings include Juniper Networks EX9200 Programmable Switch enables, Juniper Networks JunosV Wireless LAN Controller and Junos Space Network Director

Wireless LAN Controller Delivered as a Service for the Enterprise – addressing the need to support the growing trend of BYOD and seamless integration between wired and wireless networks, Juniper Networks is offering virtual WLAN controller designed to run on any combination of physical appliances, on a virtual machine (VM), or directly on Juniper Networks switches (future). Juniper has made wireless controller functionality a service on the network while offering consistent capabilities such as controller clustering, in-service software upgrades, self-organizing adds, moves and changes, and local switching across the portfolio.

Managing the Network from a Single Pane – Increasing network complexity makes network behaviour unpredictable and difficult to forecast the effects of network changes. Junos Space Network Director, a single campus-to-datacenter management tool, provides a holistic view into the enterprise network. By administering the wired and wireless infrastructure, users, applications, and services from a central location, Junos Space Network Director helps application deployment time and reduces complexity and operational expenditures. What has previously been delivered as three to four different management tools can now be consolidated into a single application.
