Juniper Networks Unveils New Cloud-Based Environment

Juniper Networks has announced a first-of-its-kind cloud offering that is touted to revolutionize the way service providers and enterprises design, test and operate networks.

Network operators can leverage the new virtual environment to create and run networks on-demand, which enables network modeling, testing and planning at a very large scale.

For $50 a day, Junosphere Lab allows companies to speed modeling projects by more than 30 percent and reduce total cost of ownership by as much as 90 percent when compared to the alternative of building a physical lab.

Junosphere Lab leverages the power of cloud networking to help customers plan and operate their networks more efficiently,” said Manoj Leelanivas, executive vice president, Junos Application Software Business Group, Juniper Networks. “The economic and operational benefits of cloud-based network modeling are astounding, and the innovation of Junosphere Lab brings these benefits to our customers so they can shape and scale their next generation networks with agility.

Juniper Networks notes that its newly released Junosphere Lab extends the capabilities of the Junosphere environment and further demonstrates the company’s commitment to helping customers leverage the power of the cloud in innovative new ways.

Energy efficiency and environmental responsibility is very important to us at NTT Communications, and we highly value technologies that can help us reduce power demand by delivering a highly scalable, realistic environment at less cost,” said Dr. Shin Miyakawa, director, Network System and Technologies, Innovative IP Architecture Center at NTT Communications. “We are excited about Junosphere Lab because it could enable us to perform many testing and modeling exercises in the cloud, rather than with physical test labs, which in turn could significantly reduce the amount of power, space and cooling our labs require.”

Juniper has also unveiled an optional application- Junosphere Connector- that allows users to connect their Junosphere networks to physical networks or lab environments.
