Build highly scalable carrier ethernet networks. For Metro Ethernet and mobile backhaul networks with demanding subscriber bandwidth requirements and rigid quality of service and security needs, carrier Ethernet provides high-speed, standardized network connectivity. But rising operational costs create a challenge for service providers, forcing them to consolidate and simplify their carrier Ethernet networks through standardized convergence, virtualization, and provisioning technologies. Juniper Networks solves this challenge with heterogeneous carrier Ethernet networks that support payloads for mobile, video, and cloud services. Juniper Networks Carrier Ethernet solutions give you a way to converge your Metro Ethernet, mobile backhaul, and optical wavelength services onto infrastructures that are both manageable and cost-effective. They enable automation and service creation at scale while lowering your CAPEX and OPEX. Juniper Networks makes Juniper Networks Carrier Ethernet solutions a reality.

The portfolio includes Juniper Networks ACX series universal access routers, which deliver the scale, performance and integrated timing features needed to aggregate mobile, residential and business services. SDN ready Juniper Networks MX Series 3D universal edge routers, to provide the aggregation and transport services required for next generation backhaul architectures. Juniper Networks SRX series services gateways, to protect mobile network and user traffic. Juniper Networks Carrier Ethernet comprehensive service management solutions tie into the Juniper Networks NorthStar Controller, which helps you meet or exceed strict SLAs and accelerate service creation so that you can tap into new revenue streams. Virtualization technologies available on our access and aggregation routers integrate with proven cloud orchestration solutions to enhance service offerings such as billing, analytics, and real-time diagnostics. And advanced timing and synchronization protocols, combined with integrated GPS.

Juniper Networks Carrier Ethernet — Backhaul Network For Your Customers

Backhaul networks that scale to meet both customer and budget demands. With more than 4.5 billion unique mobile subscribers worldwide, advances in radio access, mobile core, and smart device sectors have created tremendous opportunities for mobile providers. Multiple challenges, too. First and foremost is cost — operators are investing upwards of $100 billion per year just to keep pace with rapid growth and technological evolution. Second, as technology improves, users are demanding higher quality services that often exceed the network’s current capabilities, leaving them dissatisfied. Finally, the rise of machine to machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT) puts even greater emphasis on the availability and security of the mobile network. To meet these challenges, it’s critical that you have a mobile backhaul (MBH) solution that is easy to deploy and manage, that is built with a highly scalable and programmable control plane and a low latency data plane.

Juniper Networks Carrier Ethernet — ACX Series Universal Access Routers

A portfolio of SDN ready edge routers that provide the industry leading system capacity, density, and performance that enterprises, service providers and cloud operators need to thrive in our always on, always connected digital world. Carrier Ethernet 2.0 compliant routers enable efficient mobile backhaul and highly reliable, SLA backed business services while reining in operational expenses. Optimized for mobile backhaul — mobile subscribers enjoy a consistent, positive experience over high bandwidth, high availability IP/MPLS transport services, from Radio Access Network (RAN) to core. Operationally efficient   — seamless MPLS minimizes operational overhead, and zero-touch deployment reduces operational cost. Hardware based, high precision timing-proven Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588-2008 clocking technologies provide the industry’s highest quality of experience and meet the strictest LTE-advanced requirements.

Analytics

Data correlation — the Cloud Analytics Engine gathers and correlates data gathered from multiple sources, including physical and virtual end points, providing visibility for troubleshooting, application deployment and capacity planning. End to end aggregated view — providing end to end visibility into both the network and applications, the Cloud Analytics Engine aggregates views to help IT staff quickly identify the root cause of problems. Flexible and open — the Juniper Networks Cloud Analytics Engine partner ecosystem is continuously evolving, providing support for third-party tools and other devices through plug-ins and APIs.

Application perspective — by offering visibility into how the network is performing from an application perspective, the Cloud Analytics Engine makes it easier to triage performance problems and determine whether they originated in the network or an application. Reduced costs — by helping detect, identify and isolate network faults, the Juniper Networks Cloud Analytics Engine reduces the amount of time and money spent troubleshooting and fixing network or application problems.
