Juniper Networks Sees Changes in Application Architecture, Consumption of Applications & Where Applications Reside

By Ed Silverstein, TMCnet Contributor

Today’s demands on networks are quickly changing and leading to dramatic new approaches.

To meet these changes, Juniper Networks provides its customers a high-performance network infrastructure. It is built on such things as security, openness, simplicity and scale, the company says.

In a recent interview with TMC CEO Rich Tehrani, Abner Germanow, director of enterprise marketing at Juniper Networks (News - Alert), identified three big trends that he is witnessing. There is a change in how people consume applications, there is a change in where the applications reside, and application architecture has changed so the network has to change, too, he said.

“Juniper brings very unique solutions and architectures to each of those three,” Germanow said during Interop 2011, held in Las Vegas.

"There are changes in the way technology is being used. Employees use different devices to access information. But as this happens, IT departments need to keep control while still giving users the choice of devices. A chief information officer might say, “\'I don’t care what device you use. I won’t care what network you use to access the information, but I want it secure. If you lose the device I want to be able to wipe it. And I want to be able let you have multiple devices,'” Germanow explains.

The control is not based on where the user is located or what device is being used.

In addition, an IT department has to be able to respond to requests made by business managers. For example, a business manager may tell IT the company has information in Application A and the company has information in Application B.

“How do we get the two of these to work together?” a business manager may ask.

“For a business manager that seems like such an easy question,” Germanow adds.

Whether it’s in use on a campus, a data center or a WAN, Juniper gives better performance and often costs less than current solutions because less gear is required, Germanow said. In addition, with Juniper the operations model makes it safer to make changes. That means if changes don’t work, IT can roll the changes back.

Juniper Networks’ global customers include the top 130 service providers, 96 of the Fortune 100, and hundreds of government agencies and universities.

Juniper Networks has core competency in hardware, silicon design, network architecture, and open cross-network software platform.
