Juniper Networks to Focus on 5G and IoT at MWC 2018

Juniper Networks will provide attendees at this year’s Mobile World Congress insights into how simplicity in engineering can reduce operational complexity, secure network infrastructure and innovate services as they transform to a 5G/IoT Distributed Mobile Cloud. The 5G and IoT offerings – including professional services – due to be highlighted at Hall 2, booth #2J60/booth 2J61 will cover infrastructure, software and security solutions through a variety of demonstrations, delivered by subject matter experts and key partners.

“Simple is harder than complex. Simple is a huge feat of engineering,” explained Rami Rahim, chief executive officer at Juniper Networks. “We have always been about innovation, and we believe that creating simplicity through engineering is innovation’s highest form. At this year’s MWC, we will show exactly how operators and service providers can simplify the transformation to a 5G and IoT distributed cloud. For Juniper, that translates to simplified architectures and easy integration with standardized connectivity, as well as exemplifying how our self-driving network offerings can simplify the ever-increasing management and operational complexity of a service provider’s network through automation, telemetry, intent and machine-learning.”

During the show, Juniper will show how its Distributed Mobile Cloud Solutions can help tame the complexity and overcome the challenges of the transformation to a 5G/IoT environment by taking advantage of its world-class engineering and innovation. These solutions will help mobile operators to accelerate 5G/IoT. Juniper will demonstrate how operators can build an extensive and robust infrastructure capable of meeting the performance, latency and massive scale demands of 5G and IoT services. This includes how they can leverage CPE, access (cell site + wired), aggregation and CO/POPs as layers of virtualized computing, networking and storage for new high-value services.

By utilizing predictive and adaptive software platforms, service providers can learn how to implement enhanced orchestration, telemetry, analytics and machine learning across their networks. Through a portfolio of physical and virtual security system solutions, Juniper will highlight how it can help mobile operators scale up and scale out the protection of their networks – and that of their customers.

Juniper will showcase various end-to-end solutions with strategic partners including Affirmed Networks, Ericsson, IBM, Infineon, NEC/NetCracker, Netronome, Red Hat and Saguna Networks. Juniper has also announced details on the launch of its ‘Network Slicing Bot’, the newest addition to its growing library of automation applications that simplify network operations by translating intended outcomes expressed in human language into actionable workflows, helping to deliver on its Self-Driving Network vision.
