Juniper's New Switch

Operational simplicity, carrier-class reliability, and integration and consolidation are key features called out by networking equipment provider

High-performance networking heavyweight Juniper Networks recently unveiled its EX-series of Ethernet switches, which the company says set new benchmarks for high-performance network infrastructure in the enterprise.

IT organizations are under continuous pressure to meet demanding and changing application and service requirements that enable innovation. CIOs are being driven to provide ubiquitous access to strategic assets and business processes across the customer value chain, invest in advanced applications and services that provide the business agility to attract and grow relationships, and improve security measures to protect assets shared across the network.

In tandem, CIOs are being pressed to improve operational efficiencies to maximize productivity and profitability.

Enterprises continue to struggle to meet these requirements with existing legacy network infrastructures that are limited in performance, slow to adapt, and costly and complex to manage.

Running on Juniper's JUNOS software, a single-source network operating system, the company says its EX-series will deliver the operational simplicity, carrier-class reliability, and infrastructure consolidation and integration that helps businesses accelerate the deployment of business-enabling applications and services across the network.

By alleviating the cost, complexity and risk associated with legacy switch infrastructures, the company says that its EX-series switches advance the economics of networking.
