Juniper Networks is using this week’s show to demonstrate its core competencies, such as providing secure and reliable IP/MPLS (internet protocol multi protocol label switching) networks for enterprise and service provider customers. In addition, the infrastructure vendor is showing visitors to the show today how it can provide value added components such as VoIP, triple play and SDX software on top of this. Juniper Networks’ SDX (services deployment systems) solution is used to activate and deactivate broadband services and to log subscribers into a controlled environment. Juniper Networks is also highlighting its strength in the data centre and WAN optimisation fields this week. Its offering in these areas received a boost recently with the acquisitions of Peribit and Redline Networks for a combined price of almost US$500 million. The moves are likely to have a positive impact on the network vendor’s enterprise prospects by filling out gaps in its portfolio, as well as giving it access to Peribit and Redline enterprise customers. Juniper Networks sees Gitex as the ideal opportunity to show off its new acquisitions and its aggressive new strategy, which will see the infrastructure firm attempt to position itself as the number one player in network traffic processing. “For many years, Gitex has been the most important information technology show for the Middle East region, where we managed to meet a large number of existing clients and many prospects,” says says Mohamad Abdul-Malak, regional manager for Juniper Networks. “At Gitex we can achieve what may require several months to achieve outside this platform,” he adds. Juniper Networks is also keen to tell visitors to the show this week how it is growing regionally, with business jumping by more than 120% this year compared to 2004 results, according to the vendor. “We have managed to add several large customers to our long list of satisfied clients both in the service provider and corporate markets. Our technical objective is to demonstrate our converged capability for service providers and to show how we can secure large corporate networks,” says Abdul-Malak.
