Juniper Reinvents the Experience and Economics of Networking: Unveils New Software, Silicon, Systems and Partnerships

October 29, 2009

Company Outlines Vision for Next Decade: Develop Products for Massive Internet Scale, Deliver Open Software Platforms, Enable Broad Ecosystem of Innovation

NEW YORK, October 29, 2009 – Juniper Networks® (NYSE: JNPR) today unveiled groundbreaking new software, silicon, systems and partnerships designed to propel the "new network" for enterprise and service provider customers. The new capabilities combine breakthrough technology with smart partnerships to help customers immediately reinvent the experience and economics of networking, while fostering a broad ecosystem of innovation across the network.
The launch event today at the New York Stock Exchange coincides with the Internet's 40th anniversary1, and reflects Juniper's vision for the next decade – a future of networking that is open, scalable, simple, secure and automated to address the exploding scale of Internet services for personal and business productivity. As part of the launch, Juniper today introduced several products and partnerships that expand the company's reach and value for customers:

  • New Junos® software: An open cross-network software platform that allows customers to directly program multiple layers of their networks for rich user experiences, smart economics and fast time to market. The new Junos software platform includes the popular Junos network operating system, the new Junos Space network application platform and new Junos Pulse integrated network client – all built with the same core design principles, integration approach and development discipline.
  • New Junos-based silicon and systems: A new Junos One family of processors, including the Junos Trio chipset with revolutionary 3D Scaling technology. 3D Scaling enables networks to dynamically support more subscribers, services and bandwidth – all at the same time. Junos Trio will be delivered in new modular line cards and new 3.5-inch routers for Juniper MX Series, providing two to four times faster throughput than the competition – up to 2.6 terabits per second – while using half as much power per gigabit2.The MX 3D products will offer the industry's first "universal edge" with 3D Scaling for delivery of business, residential and mobile services at massive scale on a single network.
  • New Junos-based solutions: Juniper unveiled new cloud networking and security solutions based on the Junos software platform and Juniper systems. The solutions are built upon Juniper's simplified data center network architecture to help customers share and secure their infrastructures while delivering and accessing cloud-based services.
  • New Junos-based partnerships: Juniper announced new go-to-market partnerships with Dell and IBM. Juniper also announced its first-ever Junos software licensing partnership with BLADE Network Technologies, which will develop future blade switches based on the Junos operating system. Juniper also announced several partners who have built or are building applications based on Junos software, including Active Broadband Networks, Ankeena Networks, Harris Stratex, Packet Design, Q1 Labs, Telchemy, Telecom Italia and Triveni Digital.

"Networks are now clearly the hub of business and community around the world, and that's driving massive scale requirements for the next decade," said Kevin Johnson, Juniper's chief executive officer. "Driven by our mission to connect everything and empower everyone, Juniper believes it's time for a new approach to networking. An approach based on smart systems and open software platforms. An approach that adapts to changing business dynamics. An approach that embraces partnership and unleashes innovation. Today is an historic day for Juniper, as we stand tall with our partners and customers to jumpstart the new network."

To support its new vision for the decade ahead, Juniper today unveiled a new corporate brand identity that reflects the company's expanded portfolio and go-to-market reach – which now includes software, silicon and systems for routing, switching and security across enterprise and service provider markets worldwide. Juniper also revealed a new ingredient brand for its Junos software platform, reflecting the company's expanded software strategy, portfolio and delivery models that showcase the value of Junos software as the "brains" behind today's best networks.

"Our customers consistently tell us that they need to improve the economics of networking, cut back on complexity and improve the experience for their users," said Andreas M. Antonopoulos, senior vice president and founding partner, Nemertes Research. "Open platforms that enable fast innovation will be critical in the decade ahead."

"Juniper has finally made the notion of a service ecosystem real, and they've done it with some technical DNA that spreads through their whole product line and into their business structure," said Tom Nolle, founder and president of CIMI Corporation. "There used to be a hard separation between IT and networking.  There used to be a hard separation between service provider and enterprise. Juniper has broken down all of these barriers with a solution set that can support private networks, managed services, and public carrier services with a single product family. It's by far the most radical thing that Juniper has ever done, perhaps the most radical thing that's been done in networking since the Internet revolution."
