The continuous expansion of mobile, video, and cloud-based services is disrupting traditional networks and impacting the businesses that rely on them. While annual doubledigit traffic growth requires massive resource investments to prevent congestion and accommodate unpredictable traffic spikes, capturing return on that investment can be elusive. Emerging trends such as 5G mobility, Internet of Things (IoT) communications, and the continued growth of cloud networking promise even greater network challenges in the near future. The Juniper Networks® MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform delivers the industry's first end-to-end infrastructure security solution for enterprises as they look to move business-critical applications to public clouds. Delivering features, functionality, and secure services at scale in the 5G era with no compromises, the MX Series is a critical part of the network evolution happening now.
At the same time, traditional operations environments are increasingly challenged to meet consumer and business requirements for rapid service delivery and cloud-like network experiences. Issues related to monitoring and management are placing additional stress on already strained budgets and personnel, and promising technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and SDN introduce an entirely new set of operational challenges.
Our hyper-connected world demands more agile, automated, and scalable networks. Now more than ever, network operators need to transform their networks-and their operations environments-to accommodate this reality.
Utilizing state-of-the-art software and hardware innovations, MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms are helping network operators worldwide successfully transform their networks and services. Powered by the Juniper Networks Junos® operating system and the programmable Trio chipset, MX Series platforms support a broad set of automation tools and telemetry capabilities that enable a rich set of business- and consumer-oriented services with predictable low latency and wire-rate forwarding at scale, while providing the reliability needed to meet strict service-level agreements (SLAs).
An Agile Family of Cloud-Era Universal Routing Platforms
The MX Series portfolio was designed for agility and built from the ground up to support a universal set of edge applications, helping Juniper customers rapidly respond to evolving business and technical requirements while simplifying operations without sacrificing their current infrastructure investments.
With its massive scale and efficiency, the MX Series is ideal for space- and power-constrained environments. It redefines perslot economics, enabling customers to do more with less while simplifying network design, reducing OpEx. It also enables the profitable delivery of a broad range of business, residential, mobile, cable, data center, and cloud services while seamlessly supporting traditional and emerging network architectures with adaptive software and pervasive security. The flexibility of the MX Series is enabled by the programmable Trio chipset, which allows MX Series platforms to add support for new features, such as telemetry, without costly hardware upgrades. Additionally, support for the Junos Automation Toolkit and the Juniper Extension Toolkit provide modern programming languages that reduce costs and increase profitability by improving productivity and customization.
