Network operators face increasingly difficult challenges: flat revenues despite continuous traffic growth, ballooning operational costs from complex architectures, and rising cyberthreats and attacks. Cloud-native firms have thrived in this environment, while service providers look toward the cloud for the promise of rapid service innovation.
Winning in the cloud era requires you to fundamentally change your business economics. To do so, you need to transform your infrastructure, operations, and services. Juniper’s secure, automated cloud architecture enables you to make this change and increase your agility in the rapidly evolving cloud market.
With 5G on the horizon, the traditional methods for building network infrastructure will no longer suffice.
The foundational architecture of 5G and IoT must attain new levels of flexibility, agility, automation, and efficiency to ensure a company’s survival. This webinar with representatives from Affirmed Networks and Juniper, explores:
In This White Paper you’ll learn:
Understand how Juniper Networks is pioneering software and hardware disaggregation, using an open technology framework to ensure a smooth architecture migration.
Telecommunications networks are evolving from being a connectivity onramp to being a destination. This transformation takes vision, strategy, and an architecture to operationalize your investment in people, processes, and technologies. Juniper can help you realize your transformation through innovative telco cloud solutions.
Using advanced architectures and an end-to-end automation framework you will realize true cloud outcomes like speed, agility and scale to transform your business and monetize your network.
In the Cloud + 5G + AI era, service providers are embracing telco and edge cloud to deliver 5G network services and realize new revenue. A universal cloud framework enables economies of scale and operation across your data center, regional cloud, edge cloud, and on-premises cloud.
Juniper’s telco and edge cloud is built on an open, agile architecture that enables you to be more responsive to your customers and to rapidly changing business needs. It helps you deliver an enhanced customer experience, with managed and unmanaged cloud solutions that make telco and edge cloud easy to design, deploy, and operate.
Our platform-first approach to telco and edge cloud integrates switching, routing, analytics, automation, and security with Juniper’s Contrail Networking, a leading software-defined networking technology available in open source and commercial distributions.
Juniper's automation portfolio helps Telco Service Providers deploy CI/CD pipelines to create a flexible and responsive development life cycle that provides end-to-end automation and aligns your cloud technologies into a cloud platform to unify siloed departments, vendors, and partners.
Juniper builds automation into all our products, and we offer a suite of solutions to help network engineering, operations, and DevOps teams benefit from automation in their environments.
Juniper is helping to bring the Cloud + 5G + AI era to life with five integrated pillars.
These solutions drive significant shifts in network architecture, operational economics, and services. In doing so, they help service providers transform their businesses in ways that create substantial new business value.
Service providers will soon rely on 5G to deliver a wide variety of next-generation services to consumers, enterprises, and governments. Among them are new cloud gaming, augmented reality/virtual reality/mixed reality (AR/VR/MR), industrial automation, connected vehicles, and 8K streaming video offerings.
But 5G technology alone isn’t enough to bring these services to life, drive service provider business transformation, and seal an operator’s position in the 5G value chain.5G is part of a broader revolution that also embraces cloud and AI technologies, which together form more robust and sustainable service delivery platforms. In order to create real business value from the promise of 5G networking, service providers need to consider all three technology components collectively.
From Boxes to Virtualized, Cloud-Native Infrastructure
For service providers to achieve independent scaling, agility, faster time to market, and web-scale economics, the radio-access network (RAN), transport, and core network functions must be disaggregated and moved to virtualized environments that can run on off-the-shelf servers.
From Centralized to Distributed Architecture
Distributed edge clouds will help support ultra-low-latency applications, realize RAN architectures, and distribute core functions to deliver service from anywhere in the network.
From Static Capacity to a Dynamic IP Fabric
IP transport must move away from preplanned, static capacities to a more demand-driven and application-aware network.
From Closed, Manual Systems to Open, Automated Ones
AI-driven automation built on open interfaces is required to manage the exponential complexity that the cloud and 5G bring to network operations.
From Bolted-On to Integrated Security
An end-to-end approach that secures all users, applications, and infrastructure allows providers to tackle the challenges of ever-expanding attack surfaces and threats that continually increase in volume and sophistication.
Every service provider’s transformation journey into the Cloud + 5G + AI era will be different. However, each will entail a mix of both evolution and revolution at different times along the way.
Service providers need to consider a number of key network architectural shifts as they embark on their unique transformation journey.
With the ramp-up of 5G, the threat landscape will be growing more complex and sophisticated.
Juniper Connected Security allows service providers to stay ahead of the continual stream of new threats without sacrificing network performance, enabling a smooth and secure path to transition from 4G to 5G.
Network slicing has been touted as an integral part of the 5G opportunity. One highly anticipated aspect of 5G is that it will be built on virtualized infrastructure. Network functions will run as software in datacenters, rather than on dedicated appliances as in the past.
This will mean that operators can deploy and make changes to functions with far greater flexibility than ever before. It also offers the promise of enabling multiple logical end-to-end networks - each intended to meet specific needs – to be “spun-up”, operated and retired as required, over the same shared hardware.
This capability is the essence of network slicing. In particular, it has been suggested as a mechanism for telcos to provide a new breed of managed networking services to enterprise customers.
Juniper Networks demonstrates 5G Network Slicing across Telco Cloud and Transport Network domains, which can be used for O-RAN xHaul slicing. The demo showcases network slices created by domain specific Juniper controllers – Contrail and Northstar – and explains how Network Slicing works to deliver service guarantees for 5G applications.
Today’s mobile infrastructures need to be built to scale, deliver high volumes of data and video, and provide fast response times to multiple devices,
Read on to learn how the Juniper-Saguna joint Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) solution combines high-performance routers and switches with the Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform to deliver MEC functionality with the underlying system elements required for operation in the demanding RAN environment.Learn why 5G is about much more than just a radio upgrade.
In this video interview, Kevin Hutchins, SVP of Strategy and Corporate Development at Juniper, talks about the top challenges mobile network operators will face in supporting 5G services.
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. Juniper’s massively scalable IP Fabric with network slicing is a vital pillar to enable your business transformation towards the ‘Cloud + 5G + AI’ era.
Service provider networks are on the verge of significant and lasting change. Leading operators have started to re-architect their networks for the services that will underpin their commercial success in the 5G era.5G brings a new approach to delivering seamless convergence between wireline and wireless access networks that simplifies network operations while greatly enhancing customer experience.
