Juniper Networks unveils connected portfolio to enable mobile workforce


Juniper Networks announced the launch of its new ‘Simply
Connected’ portfolio of switching, security and wireless products designed to
simplify the wired network and ensure the management and security of all mobile
devices in the enterprise.


As part of the new networking portfolio, Juniper announced
the availability of three new switching products, wireless LAN (WLAN) product
innovations, and a comprehensive set of updated Apple iOS and Google Android
mobile device security capabilities.


The diversity and growth of users demanding wireless
access to enterprise networks with smartphones, tablets and other devices,
presents IT departments with a unique opportunity to migrate beyond legacy
networks designed for wired employee PCs.


Juniper’s Simply Connected approach to the enterprise
embraces two critical concepts: user-centric security and management
independent of mobile device brand or type; and the opportunity to re-architect
and reduce the network footprint in facilities where the mix of wireless and
wired network access is changing.


To re-architect the wired network for the next decade,
Juniper’s Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches now include Virtual Chassis
fabric technology on more platforms to enable multiple interconnected switches
to operate as a single, logical device, simplifying the campus wired network
and resulting in fewer devices and wires to manage.


Juniper’s WL family of WLAN controllers, APs and
management tools help deliver pervasive wireless access to all campus and
branch users with the same level of reliability and control that they expect
from the wired network.


Juniper Networks SRX Series Service Gateways ensure
secure device-agnostic connections.


In addition, Junos Pulse enables user device freedom with
IT self service in order to secure, manage, and enforce policy across a wide
range of popular devices.


“It should be simple for individuals to choose and
change their devices, simple to securely access their business applications and
easy for the IT department to provision one policy per user that works across
multiple devices, from tablets to smartphones to PCs,” said Alex Gray,
senior vice president and general manager, campus and branch business unit,
Juniper Networks.


Recently, Juniper Networks announced
that Phonoscope, operator of the privately-owned fiber optic Metropolitan Area
Network in the U.S., has selected Juniper Networks routing solutions as its
platform of choice to support IPv4/IPv6 addressing transition and coexistence
across its 46 multi-gigabit Ethernet fiber optic rings.
