Juniper Networks is adding EVPN-VXLAN (Ethernet VPN- Virtual Extensible LAN) fabric protocol to its campus portfolio to provide a unified solution for campus and datacenter fabrics.
Generally, the enterprises have separate campus and data center networks which require diverse architectures for connectivity and operations. EVPN-VXLAN, the protocol previously used only for datacenters, can now also be used for campus networks.
It will allow enterprises to build campus networks using the same protocols that they use in datacenters. Juniper will provide building blocks for an enterprise-wide fabric which will help enterprises to build a simple, secure and automated multi-cloud.
Juniper has also expanded its partnership with the leading wireless services provider Aerohive Networks to deliver unified cloud managed campus and branch networking solution from ethernet switches to enterprise-ready wireless access points, the company said.
To enable customers create their customized path to cloud, Juniper has announced a 5-step multicloud migration for campus and branch networks.
“Today’s announced campus and SD-WAN enhancements allow enterprises to bring best practices from the data center into their campuses, allowing them to more quickly realize secure and automated multicloud environments. The transition to multicloud doesn’t have to be a long and drawn-out process. Through our 5-step multicloud migration framework, Juniper Networks is also providing enterprises the required building blocks that facilitate the transition and bring best practices to each stage along the way,” said Michael Bushong, Vice President of Cloud and Enterprise Marketing at Juniper Networks
Furthermore, the company said that it has added support for Application Quality of Experience to its Contrail SD-WAN offering. It will enable enterprises to gain visibility and manage individual app session performance for over 3700 applications including Outlook, SharePoint and Skype for Business.
“Based on real-time analysis of application traffic in Juniper’s NFX, SRX and vSRX Series WAN edge endpoints, customers can tune application performance to and from the branch using Contrail Service Orchestration managed policies. This gives enterprise IT managers the ability to dynamically prioritize business-critical application traffic based on business policy intent,” wrote Juniper in announcement post.
