BANGALORE, INDIA: Juniper Networks today unveiled an open cross-network software platform that allows customers to directly program multiple layers of their networks for rich user experiences, smart economics and fast time to market.
The new Junos software platform includes the popular Junos network operating system, the new Junos Space network application platform and new Junos Pulse integrated network client -– all built with the same core design principles, integration approach and development discipline.
The new software extends Juniper’s heritage and unique differentiation as an innovative developer of smart, reliable and scalable software that runs across routing, switching and security products for service provider and enterprise markets.
Juniper first opened up the Junos operating system in 2007, delivering a software developer’s kit that is now used by dozens of third parties around the world to optimize and integrate their networks for reduced cost of operations.
Junos Space (available today) and Junos Pulse (available in first half 2010) extend that intelligence across the network and to endpoint devices – enabling fully programmable networks that can deliver a superior mix of experience and economics.
“Businesses invest billions every year and employ hundreds of thousands of developers to create custom network applications – all without a software platform,” said Mike Harding, vice president and general manager, Junos Space.
“We can now make that work more valuable and efficient with a software platform that helps automate infrastructure, catalyze innovation, enable new revenue streams and accelerate service delivery. With Junos Space and Junos Pulse, we’re extending that intelligence across the network to help reduce cost, minimize complexity and open up innovation at multiple layers of the network.”
