Juniper enhances MX Series with performance upgrade and new automation features
Company’s flagship routing platform deployed globally in top global service providers and enterprises
Juniper Networks has announced improvements in the performance, density and operational efficiency of its SDN-ready Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routing portfolio with new hardware and software features that triple throughput and enable network automation.
With these capabilities, this edge router delivers the scale and automation that service providers and cloud operators require to bolster the economics of next-generation networks, the company says.
Consumer and business appetite for HD video, cloud services and always-on collaboration tools have forced network operators to add unprecedented levels of capacity to their infrastructure, all while trying to remain profitable. At the same time, large enterprises are building increasingly sophisticated networks to enable the deployment of hybrid clouds and flexible wide-area networks, creating a situation where IT is a competitive advantage.
In order to remain relevant in today’s extremely competitive marketplace, customers intimately understand that throwing more terabits at the problem alone will not solve things; but rather, they must also use new tools that automate manual, innovation-stifling tasks and allow for further programmability within the network to improve operations and service velocity.
The MX Series, powered by programmable Trio silicon and the Juniper Networks Junos software, gives customers investment protection and offers a network application development platform that seamlessly integrates with evolving SDN and NFV solutions.
