Deutsche Telekom (DT) has selected Juniper Networks as the first network technology partner for Magenta Business Networks SD-X.
DT’s universal managed services platform will power exceptional user experiences with simplified zero touch deployments, proactive self-driving automation, connected security and unique client-to-cloud insight.
SD-X is a virtualized and automated platform that will provide a rapid, simplified and cost-effective transition from MPLS to software-defined network services for thousands of European enterprises, including small-to-midsize organizations that might otherwise find the cost and complexity of owned infrastructure to be prohibitive.
Juniper is providing DT with advanced technologies to create a secure, software-driven network fabric that uses AI to provide actionable insights on real-time performance coupled with automated mitigation.
This approach enables SD-X to deliver optimal user, device and application experiences to its customers as they navigate digital transformation in support of agile, differentiated business capabilities. The managed services offered provide secure networking for campus and branch environments, enabling rich new service functionality and enhanced performance.
Magenta Business Networks SD-X will leverage Juniper’s full AI-driven Enterprise portfolio, starting with secure SD-WAN and expanding to wired and wireless access.
The Juniper solution provides client-to-cloud service levels with AI-driven intelligence to optimize and maintain the best user experiences. With AI-driven insight, problems are proactively discovered and addressed via recommended actions and/or self-driving network operations. This minimizes downtime while maximizing end user experiences on the SD-X network.
Customers can easily change network policies and security settings remotely at any time using a cloud-hosted SD-X portal, with no manual intervention or site visits needed. Simultaneous updates can be made across a customer’s entire network, so consistent policies are applied between sites.
“DT’s vision is made possible thanks to Juniper’s innovation with AI, automation and the cloud, which creates an agile network for our customers that is highly differentiated in the industry,” Sherif Rezkalla, VP Portfolio, Head of Business Networks, Deutsche Telekom.
“DT has embraced the value of intelligent networks with SD-X. This business model is cost-effective than traditional approaches,. Customers can use SD-X as the foundation for an experience-driven digital business for their customers and employees,” Manoj Leelanivas, Chief Operating Officer, Juniper Networks.
