History of Juniper:

Industry Leadership


From the start, Juniper saw the opportunity to help customers build and accelerate business value from their IT infrastructures. Since then we have helped our customers stay ahead of the demands posed by the exponential growth in network users and end-points, while meeting the business imperatives for high performance, reliability and absolute security.

After 11 years working at the Computer Science Lab of Xerox PARC, Pradeep Sindhu took a leave of absence to consider his next steps. Noting the explosive growth of the Internet and the importance of connecting computers, Sindhu was struck by the enormous potential of the router - the fundamental building block of the network.

Juniper remains uniquely positioned to maintain industry leadership based on our core competencies in architecture, silicon design and the industry’s only carrier-class, purpose-built "pure IP" modular network operating system - JunosŽ. Juniper offers a broad product portfolio, spanning routing, switching, security, application acceleration, identity policy and control and management designed to give customers unmatched performance, greater choice and flexibility while reducing overall total cost of ownership.

After some discouraging responses from venture capitalists, Sindhu managed to secure financing for his fledgling company and Juniper Networks was incorporated February 6, 1996, in California.

Today, Juniper Networks [NYSE: JNPR] is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, with 7,000 dedicated employees and offices in nearly 50 countries. Our customers include the top 100 global service providers, 30,000 enterprises, including 99 of the Global Fortune 100, as well as hundreds of federal, state and local government agencies and higher education organisations.

Instead of starting small like many start-ups, Juniper decided upon what would become its signature approach - tackle the toughest problem and solve it once. The company's first product, the revolutionary M40 router which shipped in September of 1998, did just that. The M40 far surpassed all other routers on the market and established Juniper's position as an innovative and serious player in the hardware market. Developing the M40 was a major undertaking that required two years of research and work. During that time, to keep venture capitalists and customers happy, Juniper developed what would later become its major differentiator and the basis for all future innovation - JUNOS Software.

Open, adaptive, and customisable, it’s the perfect application development platform. The inherent security and stability of Junos, combined with its modular architecture and single code source, provides a proven foundation for delivering best-in-class performance, reliability, security, scale and total cost of ownership.

• 17

Launching Our New Brand:

The Junos Platform The Junos Platform is an extensible software platform that gives developers unmatched flexibility to create dynamic applications that interact with the network from the client to the cloud. It’s founded on the Junos operating system, which provides a common language across Juniper Networks routing, switching and security devices.

The Next Decade for Juniper NetworksÂŽ: The past 14 years have been a period of enormous growth in terms of network-enabled devices. However, as the technology we use to connect to the network has advanced, the demands have increased exponentially. The explosion of mobile devices, high bandwidth downloads and global demand for an always-on connection has pushed the old network to its limit. The truth is, without radical innovation and new thinking, the network itself is likely to breakeither through the impossible economics of maintaining the infrastructure, or by the inability of complex, proprietary solutions to meet the demand. It's time for a new approach and it starts with a new philosophy.

The next decade: a new industry approach to innovation. Overcoming the challenges of the new network won't come from the proprietary, siloed approach of the last 14 years. In fact, the old way of doing things prevents innovation - the investment and brainpower is siloed within proprietary initiatives instead of being pooled and harnessed as a collective effort. In other words, innovation suffers and the customer pays for it. Fixing this broken model will only happen through an ecosystem of development in which advances come from collaboration and partnership. To do that, you need a common platform. And that's where Junos comes in.

Cloud-Enabled Security:

In an open environment like Cloud, security is critical. After all, this is about inviting users INTO the cloud, not keeping them out. It’s about data flowing freely—and safely. We have flows between servers, we have flows between data centres and we have flows between the client and the data centre. Those are the critical flows that must be secured. To help our customers understand the best practices to secure these flows, to understand how to best leverage our technology and to accelerate their path to success, Juniper has five security solution modules. In the past, when people secured the flows, we found that appliances were being applied organically. As new applications came up, as new flows occurred, a new firewall would be installed in an organic basis. There is a much better way to do that using the SRX technology. We can apply the lessons of the cloud to secure the cloud. We can take these disparate appliances and we can pool them into a single virtualised pool of security services that can be shared across any flow of the data centre. Coordinated threat control is also a very critical capability. We can take knowledge of the identity and location of the user and of the application itself and apply more precise and granular policies to the environment. More secure with less obtrusion and a better experience. Finally, we can use Junos SPACE as the single point to provision all policies across the network and report threats for compliance.
