Juniper Networks Converged Supercore brings efficiency through flatter networks and SDN controls. Emerging traffic dynamics such as mobility, video, and cloud based services are changing the way service provider networks operate. With this transformation, service providers are required to make continuous capital and operational investments in their infrastructure, driving up their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Unable to accurately predict shifting traffic patterns and volumes, network operators are forced to over provision their systems to accommodate peak use periods. The associated costs eat away at the bottom line, resulting in an unsustainable model. To remain profitable, businesses need to transition to a more agile, intelligent and responsive infrastructure — one that leads to improved revenue streams by enabling and delivering new, customizable services. Juniper Networks Converged Supercore can help solve these challenges with Juniper Networks Converged Supercore PTX Series Packet Transport Routers and the Converged Supercore architecture.
The Juniper Networks Converged Supercore PTX Series is an ultra efficient, transit optimized solution for supporting full-featured IP/MPLS. Combined with integrated optical transport, the PTX Series is designed to achieve greater network traffic efficiencies that dramatically reduce network operating expenses (OPEX). Working with technology from optical transport partners such as BTI, ADVA, and Coriant, Juniper Networks Converged Supercore PTX Series routers easily interoperate with traditional transport environments, preserving existing investments while ensuring continued, uninterrupted operations. The Juniper Networks Converged Supercore architecture gives service providers a network model that helps take the uncertainty and high costs out of core, peering, metro and converged IP and optical network planning and provisioning. This innovative architecture leverages the power of the industry’s highest performance IP/MPLS transit optimized router to lower your operational expenses.

Simplify core architectures and service provisioning by partnering with Juniper Networks Converged Supercore. Many of today’s core architectures are burdened with multiple complex networking layers, driving up CAPEX and OPEX, while increasing domain silos. In short, they stand in the way of profitability. To help solve this problem, Juniper is partnering with optical transport vendors ADVA and Coriant to simplify core architectures by enabling packet transport that easily plugs in to end to end service provisioning and performance/alarm management systems. For example, our PTX Series 100GbE coherent optical interfaces are now virtually integrated into ADVA’s and Coriant’s transport network management systems, delivering a plug and play solution for traditional transport environments. Extensible management interfaces such as NETCONF/YANG within the Junos OS make the IP/MPLS packet layer fully transport aware of the optical topology, without any human intervention.
Juniper Networks Converged Supercore Software-Defined Networking (SDN) brings control to unpredictable environments. Exploding growth and rapidly shifting traffic patterns wreak havoc with the network, making it nearly impossible for operators to manage or provision, let alone anticipate future needs. But the programmability of software-defined networking introduces a new level of network elasticity and flexibility that enables operators to maximize resources while shortening planning cycles. For example, NorthStar Controller for carrier SDN can centralize traditionally distributed traffic engineering operations. This capability minimizes the need for emergency capacity planning while helping operators realize greater segment utilization, create predictable network survivability scenarios, and respond quickly to new service roll outs. As a homogeneous, customizable, and programmable traffic engineering platform with global network visibility, NorthStar Controller ensures predictable network behavior across multiple layers.
