But the demands on the network are changing rapidly and require a new approach. Cloud computing and the mobile Internet are two macro trends driving an exponential increase in traffic volume, new services, and new subscribers around the world. These trends will define the next decade, with broad implications for the technology industry, and for network innovation in particular. In the face of this increased demand, legacy approaches to networking are proving unsustainable. They are too costly, too complex, and simply cannot scale. It’s Time for a New Network At Juniper Networks, we are leading the charge to architecting the new network. At the heart of the new network is our promise to transform the economics and experience of networking for our customers. We offer a high-performance network infrastructure built on simplicity, security, openness, and scale. We are innovating in ways that empower our customers, our partners, and ultimately everyone in a connected world. Our products and technologies run the world’s largest and most demanding networks today, enabling our customers to create value and accelerate business success within the new, rapidly changing global marketplace. Our customers include the top 130 global service providers, the Fortune Global 100, as well as hundreds of federal, state and local government agencies and higher education organizations throughout the world. As a pure play, high-performance networking company, we offer a broad product portfolio that spans routing, switching, security, application acceleration, identity policy and control, and management designed to provide unmatched performance, greater choice, and true flexibility, while reducing overall total cost of ownership. In addition, through strong industry partnerships, Juniper Networks is fostering a broad ecosystem of innovation across the network.

They include a dedication to developing new, pure play IP solutions based on a unique single architecture, a single operating system, and a single software release train that ensures performance, reliability, and security at the scale that customers demand of their networks—without compromise.
