Juniper Networks, a provider of network infrastructure services, has unveiled a virtualized platform, an edge services engine enabling service, for a rapid deployment of multivendor applications.
Combined, the new Juniper Networks MX2020 3D Universal Edge Router and new JunosV App Engine transform the network edge into a platform for rapid service deployment, speeding time to revenue by up to 69% compared to other solutions. This helps service providers reverse declining revenue models by removing the complexity and time associated with service deployment, the company said.
"Our vision for the new network is to provide innovations that help transform service providers into super providers," said Rami Rahim, senior vice president, Edge and Aggregation Business Unit, Juniper Networks.
"Thousands of MX customers have validated the need for massive scaling and reduced complexity driven by emerging video, applications, and cloud-based services. We see our new edge services engine as the first solution that truly empowers service providers to take control of their business by removing barriers currently hindering innovation and revenue expansion."
This solution offers new levels of scale for service providers by delivering a gateway for everything the network has to offer: one system, innovative software services, with unlimited revenue possibilities at unconstrained scale.
Mike Wright, executive director of Networks and Access Technologies at Telstra, said: "With data on Telstra's fixed network doubling approximately every 17 months we need a network that is scalable, resilient and integrated. The Juniper Edge Services Router assists Telstra to manage content delivery, is highly scalable and integrates our networks. Using this equipment in our network assists us to manage the ever increasing volumes of traffic on the Telstra network."
