SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today unveiled new software and services enabling mobile service providers to realize immediate benefits while laying the foundation to build software-defined networks (SDN). By deploying Juniper Networks' new services provisioning application, mobile infrastructure application and virtualized services engine, customers can achieve elastic capacity, increased service velocity, while lowering overall operating expenses (OPEX). Based on use cases and data from ACG Research, customers may realize up to 65 percent reduction in OPEX and up to 54 percent reduction in total cost of ownership.
The software and services announced today come on the heels of Juniper's introduction of the most comprehensive SDN vision in the industry and follows Juniper's roadmap to transition enterprises and service providers from traditional network infrastructures to SDNs. Specifically, with today's announcement, customers can address two of the four steps to SDN:
- Step 1: Centralize network management, analytics and configuration functionality to provide a single master that configures all networking devices:
Announced today, Juniper Networks® Junos® Space Services Activation Director application enables service providers to provision thousands of seamless services, including multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and Carrier Ethernet for mobile backhaul. Service Activation Direction lowers OPEX cost through simplified deployment and management, and greater business insight gained from service provider networks. The Services Activation Director, along with other Junos Space applications, is scheduled to be available for purchase in the first half of 2013, which allows the software to transfer to any network element with which it operates.
- Step 2: Extract networking and security services from the underlying hardware by creating service virtual machines (VMs):
Also announced today, Juniper Networks Mobile Control Gateway (virtual MCG) is now running as a virtualized function on the JunosV App Engine, providing signaling and control (SGSN/MME) functions to LTE, 3G and 2G radio access networks. As a virtualized network function, mobile operators can rapidly scale up and down capacity to meet variable demand requirements. Comparing a standalone physical appliances approach to a virtualized approach, mobile operators have the ability to accelerate deployment time by as much as 46 percent and reduce deployment cost by as much as 61 percent, according to ACG Research. Part of Juniper Networks Mobile Packet Core solution, the virtual MCG is co-developed with Hitachi, the first third-party to virtualize a network service on the JunosV App Engine.
Now shipping, Juniper Networks JunosV App Engine centralizes the development, provisioning and management of both Juniper Networks and third-party applications on a common platform. This platform also enables customers to grow the compute, memory and processing resource needed for cloud-based applications and services attached specifically to the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router.
"With mobile traffic growth exploding, operators need a virtualized Mobile Packet Core for scaling capacity up and down to both increase service velocity and control costs. Our research has validated that Juniper's virtual Mobile Control Gateway has a 54 percent lower total cost of ownership over five years and the time to deploy the initial implementation is 46 percent faster than a standalone appliance-based solution. In addition, the virtual MCG provides incremental capacity additions in 87 percent less time, enabling operators to address the volatility of mobile control plane traffic driven by smartphones and smartphones apps."
- Dr. Ray Mota, managing partner, ACG Research
"Through our strong technology partnership, Hitachi's goal was to create a solution that would elastically scale from small to very large. Juniper's JunosV App Engine allows Hitachi to quickly innovate and deliver market-leading MME/SGSN Gateway services faster and more cost efficiently for our customers. For mobile service providers, it means lower capital and operating expenses coupled with a superior user experience and assurance that communications functions operate reliably."
- Kiichiro Taima, CEO and president of Hitachi Communication Technologies America
Juniper Networks Quote:
"Mobile networks are perfectly suited to benefit from Juniper Network's SDN approach. Exponential mobile data usage coupled with an increasingly wide array of multi-media smartphones and tablets put enormous demands on high-performance networking. Juniper Networks, a recognized leader in carrier-grade IP network equipment, is leading the industry by delivering the next generation of SDN software services."
