Juniper Bets On the Enterprise With Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN
April 08, 2019 / sdxcentral
Juniper today released a cloud-delivered version of its SD-WAN service to simplify adoption and operations. It also leverages the recent $405 million acquisition of Mist Systems, which closed last week, to add visibility into both wired and wireless via its Contrail Service Orchestration platform. Previously, Juniper had two flavors of SD-WAN: one that was based on its underlying SRX platform, which is a secure router that also acts as a next-generation firewall; and one based on NFX as the underlying platform, which works as a universal CPE (uCPE) that can run NFV software, or virtual network functions (NFV) on top. Both flavors run its Junos operating systems to provide routing, switching, and security.
