Create true business agility and operational excellence through network virtualization, orchestration and automation enabled by intelligent, reliable and open SDN from Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking. As the speed of change increases, organizations are moving to the cloud for its promise of limitless scale, flexibility and agility. But the wide adoption of cloud — as well as mobile, M2M and big data applications, is having profound impacts on IT infrastructures. The traditional way of implementing networks and services in hardware makes them static, rigid, manual, and unable to respond as application requirements rapidly change. To pull off this transition with a minimum of disruption, organizations want to architect their networks to meet the connectivity and service requirements of these increasingly dynamic applications. They need to be policy driven, programmable, scalable and automated to connect ideas to opportunities.
Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an approach to network virtualization that seeks to optimize network resources and quickly adapt networks to changing business needs, applications, and traffic. It works by separating the network’s control plane and the data plane, creating software programmable infrastructure that is distinct from physical devices. With Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking, the functions of network orchestration, management, analytics, and automation become the job of Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking controllers. Because these controllers are not networking devices, they can take advantage of the scale, performance, and availability of modern cloud computing and storage resources. Increasingly, Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking controllers are built on open platforms, using open standards and open APIs, enabling them to orchestrate, manage, and control network equipment from different vendors. IP/MPLS traffic management and engineering solution.

Support for business continuity and business critical applications is gained through highly available, highly secure and seamlessly scalable software and hardware. Freedom of choice — flexible deployment options allow implementation to be started anywhere in the network with the ability to grow and evolve over time. Multi vendor support and seamless interoperability between physical and virtual elements avoids expensive vendor lock in and allows best of breed choices that future proof the infrastructure. Intelligent automation-insights based on data derived knowledge of network operations guides automation decisions and closes the infrastructure provisioning feedback loop through a policy driven, programmable infrastructure. Rich analytics collected from all infrastructure resources with correlations between virtual and physical layers improves measurement precision and visibility, capacity planning and optimization, troubleshooting, and network telemetry. NorthStar Controller — multilayer SDN control puts an end to overprovisioning.
SDN Separates Control And Transport Layers
Juniper Networks Software-Defined Networking dovetails with another technology, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). NFV offers the ability to virtualize appliance based network functions such as firewalls, load balancers, and WAN accelerators. The centralized control that SDN provides can efficiently manage and orchestrate virtual network functions that are enabled by NFV. Capacity upgrades should be targeted, service driven, and capable of adapting dynamically to constantly evolving customer needs in real-time. NorthStar Controller proves a powerful and flexible solution, NorthStar Controller provides granular visibility into, and control over, IP/MPLS flows in large service provider and enterprise networks. Using NorthStar Controller, operators can optimize their network infrastructure through proactive monitoring and planning, and dynamically create explicit routing paths using a global view that’s based on user defined constraints.

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.
