Service providers today are facing a multitude of network challenges that hinder their ability to stay competitive. Foremost among these challenges is a rigid service delivery infrastructure and operating costs that seldom align with revenue. Compounding those problems, network operations are increasingly complex and expensive to maintain, driving up Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). By leveraging technologies such as software-defined networking (SDN) and Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), today’s service providers can overcome such limitations. Juniper Networks solves these problems with a carrier grade Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution that combines a turnkey software cloud management system and a supporting reference architecture based on virtualization and programmability. Juniper Networks enhances their NFV solution with innovative management software and accelerate deployment with Juniper Networks Services and expert partners.
The result is a production ready suite of Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization capabilities that intelligently orchestrates and automates the provisioning and operation of network functions, both virtualized and physical. The Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization solution enables you to lower your TCO through automation while improving visibility and simplifying your operations. You also gain increased agility through virtualization, allowing you to align your costs with revenue. Juniper Networks commitment to an open-platform, DevOps approach helps you stay flexible and minimizes risks by avoiding vendor lock in. With the Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization solution architecture, you gain the freedom to choose the components and network elements that are right for your business. These elements enable a platform to rapidly deliver new services to market. Juniper Networks vSRX virtual firewall — high performance network security in a virtual form factor for rapid deployment and scale out environments.
Juniper Networks Network Functions Virtualization — Service Edge
In a perfect world, service provider infrastructure would evolve at the same pace as the applications and services it supports. Instead, networks today typically employ a single, monolithic service chain comprising multiple static appliances. This model imposes a number of restrictions on service providers. Not only does it make it difficult to add, move, or change applications, it requires significant overprovisioning to ensure adequate capacity. By leveraging technologies such as software-defined networking and Network Functions Virtualization — today’s service providers can overcome such limitations. These technologies give you the ability to tune and modify network resources in real-time to deliver customized networking experiences for your customers. Juniper Networks is leading the way with an NFV service edge solution, built on MX series 3D universal edge router platform, Service Control Gateways, and Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs).
