The Juniper Cloud Metro is a single, multiservice architecture that gives you the power to deliver consistently assured user experiences for distributed cloud services. Through network slicing, service-aware technologies, and cloud-scale capabilities, you can meet or exceed user expectations for every service you deliver—while eliminating the costs and complexity of siloed metro architectures and operations.
The 5G, IoT, and cloud era brings incredible revenue-generating opportunities for network operators, along with daunting new challenges. While metro traffic is growing 4x faster than any other place in the network, existing capacity can’t meet the demands of ultra-low latency enterprise applications. Resources and services are getting more distributed.
The lines between domains are blurring. And separate architectures for business, residential, and mobile services no longer make sense. You can’t overcome these challenges with a metro network designed for yesterday’s static transport and aggregation needs. You need a network that performs more like a cloud data center than a traditional metro network.
Networking dynamics are changing fast! The emergence of 5G, IoT, and distributed edge services is forcing the convergence of metro, edge, and cloud as operators grapple to acclimate to increasing levels of traffic that stays within the metro. All this disruption has made the metro the hotbed of innovation and transformation.
Networks primarily designed for connectivity will not keep pace as service level agreements (SLAs) evolving. The pursuit of experience-first networking will increasingly dive service and resource virtualization to enable service instantiations that are strategic placed across network to optimize performance and user experience. The application of closed-loop automation and the pursuit of new benchmarks for service assurance will redefine what is meant by operational simplicity.

Learn how to deliver an assured experience to end users by leveraging a predictable, reliable, scalable and measurable IP service fabric powered by automation.
Ethernet business services and direct public cloud access have been growing at double-digit rates for the past several years, and there’s no end in sight. Offering a lower cost per bit and bandwidth scalability, Ethernet’s popularity is also being fueled by unprecedented network traffic growth. Video usage, mobility, the shift from TDM to IP networking, cloud services, smart cities, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are the primary generators of that growth.
Ethernet services have been able to proliferate to meet these needs in part thanks to the MEF Forum’s CE 2.0 specifications. These standards enable providers to grow their businesses by interconnecting their performance-assured services across local, regional, national, and international networks.
In turn, Ethernet business services in the metro are expected to grow the fastest of all the network market segments in both the number of connection endpoints and network traffic volumes supported. Revenues are expected to reach $65 billion globally by 2020 and account for the proliferation of data centers within metro areas for IP video caching, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) deployments, and cloud services.
The uptick in Ethernet business services presents significant challenges.

In telecom networks worldwide, Metro is the hotbed of innovation driving today’s digital experience. Juniper’s Amit Bhardwaj, Director of Product Management, provides enlightening insight to Metro trends, evolving services, disruptive influences and available architectural transformations that can change monumental challenges into paradigm shifting opportunities to reinvent and supercharge service provider business models.
New 5G experiences will not only generate an explosion in traffic, but also change the traffic patterns in known and unknown ways. Yesterday’s capacity forecasting models – which involve making big upfront investments to build for peaks – just won’t work anymore.
Service providers need an IP fabric that can deliver massive capacity, on-demand scalability where needed, network slicing and stringent timing – all without compromising carrier-grade reliability or security.
