As businesses move to the cloud to solve their data management and access problems, they see a critical need for solutions that can help them bridge the gap between their existing environment and their vision of a more agile and flexible network. In today’s enterprise campus and branch locations, most networks are manual systems comprising layers of switches, VLANs, and security products. Each adds operational complexity, which intensifies in proportion to the number of branch locations. Manual administration of the layers introduces the potential for human errors that can disrupt services and open security gaps. These challenges are prompting a growing number of enterprises to adopt cloud technologies in support of their IT environments. Virtualization makes it possible to consolidate multiple functions into a single device, simplifying operations. With virtualized network services, you can quickly build and scale dynamic on ramps to your cloud based applications, wherever they’re located.
Virtualization lets you collapse multiple physical network elements into a single, logical point of management. The open Juniper Networks NFX platform allows you to run your choice of virtualized Juniper and third—party network services and applications. Branch automation doesn’t stop at provisioning and maintenance. The Cloud Enabled Branch solution offers software defined WAN (SD—WAN) capability that can optimize traffic by matching it with the transport link best suited for it, based on application type, resource requirements, and priority. The result — productivity gains with lower WAN costs. Third party network services from technology alliance partners and custom enterprise applications that consolidate into one easy to manage device, right sized to deliver multiple services simultaneously. SD—WAN with application and content aware routing that intelligently chooses routes from among various network links without jeopardizing quality of service.
