Telecom Lead America: Juniper Networks has announced
an expansion of its Junosphere partner ecosystem with the integration

“The integration of IxVM will for the first time
enable customers to build and validate complex virtualized network topologies
with highly scalable protocol emulation and industry-leading traffic generation
from within Junosphere’s cloud. This integrated approach allows users to
validate network and application delivery infrastructure design, test live migration
and measure network convergence from within Junosphere,” said Deepesh Arora,
senior director, product management, Ixia.
