Juniper Networks Introduces Dynamic Services Architecture to Accelerate New Service Deployments for Enterprises and Service Providers
New Dynamic Services Architecture “Changes the Game” in Networking; Fuels Innovation and Helps Drive a Sustainable Competitive Advantage
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, is changing the game in networking with the introduction of the industry’s first Juniper Networks Dynamic Services Architecture designed to help high-performance businesses tightly align rapidly changing business requirements with network technology investments to accelerate new service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture is the foundation on which the newly announced Juniper Networks SRX dynamic services gateways (see today’s related announcement) are built, offering an extensible “no compromise” solution to scaling integrated services and network capabilities on a single architecture. This enables enterprises, service providers and public sector agencies to quickly and cost-effectively take advantage of new service opportunities, address changing business requirements, and deliver superior user experiences.
High-performance businesses view the network as critical for taking advantage of dynamic service and business models which fuel innovation. As these businesses continue to massively scale their networks to support advanced applications and services, they can no longer afford the service integration and performance tradeoffs associated with administering and managing legacy network infrastructure. Innovative businesses require a dynamic network infrastructure that is fast, reliable and secure, and that paves the path toward seizing new opportunities. These challenges include keeping pace with an escalating and evolving security threat landscape, which remains a leading source of network downtime and slow service; contending with an inability to quickly scale networks to deliver applications and support thousands to millions of users; and the continuing operational inefficiencies that plague legacy network infrastructure, including the rising cost, complexity and inability to adapt to changing requirements.
“Racks of service specific appliances and blades along with a multitude of operating systems and management interfaces create a level of network complexity that introduces latency and inhibits new service deployments,” said Abner Germanow, director, Enterprise Networks, IDC. “A service architecture that enables businesses to scale in all dimensions dynamically with virtually ’any’ service will quickly meet the business requirements and streamline investment decisions.”
“Maximizing the value of services and applications while simultaneously minimizing costs is critical for service providers to drive revenues,” said Ray Mota, chief research officer, Synergy Research Group. “There is a fundamental requirement for a high-performance scalable network architecture that delivers performance, reliability and security at scale to accelerate new service deployment.”
Continued Innovation: Dynamic Services Delivery Technology
As the leader in high-performance networking, Juniper uniquely understands today’s challenges for enterprises and service providers and continues to innovate, to design, develop and deliver solutions that offer greater choice and control in quickly meeting changing requirements. The Dynamic Services Architecture includes Juniper’s dedicated dual management engine and purpose-built, carrier-class terabit speed fabric that allows for massive scale of Ethernet ports and services processing independently. The new architecture delivers the ability to readily “turn-on” a wide range of services, including stateful firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDos/DoS) protection, Network Address Translation (NAT), dynamic routing, and Quality of Service (QoS). This ability greatly accelerates application and service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture serves as the framework for the evolution of networking, which will not only change the way businesses operate, but also improve how networks are architected.
“Juniper continues to invest in the innovation necessary to deliver the high-performance network infrastructure that matters most to high-performance businesses,” said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager, Services Layer Technologies, Juniper Networks. “Escalating security and performance demands magnify the need for a dynamic approach that allocates and maximizes the utilization of necessary security and network resources, without compromising network performance. Juniper is the first to deliver on a technology that builds upon a Dynamic Services Architecture, changing the game in the provisioning of high-performance security and networking services to accelerate the deployment of advanced business and consumer services and applications, all while reducing cost, complexity and risk.”
Delivering High-Performance SRX Dynamic Services Gateways
The Dynamic Services Architecture is the foundation on which the newly announced Juniper Networks SRX dynamic services gateways are built. Juniper today introduced the family of JUNOS®-based dynamic services gateways - the SRX 5600 and 5800 - which provide fast, reliable, secure access to applications and services from a single network architecture that runs on a single operating system managed by a single management framework. The Juniper SRX dynamic services gateways are designed to meet the technical, business and economic requirements of a service-enabling network infrastructure.
