Juniper Virtual Summit – Juniper’s SD-Branch with Mist AI Gives Managed Service Providers New Opportunities to Extend Software-defined Management and Control Deeper into the Enterprise Branch
During the ‘Juniper Virtual Summit – Networks for the New Era’, June 10, 2020; Juniper outlined its Managed SD-Branch proposition. The service extends the features and benefits of SD-WAN more deeply into the enterprise branch locations and adds a layer of Mist AI to provide actionable insights and proactively solve any branch network problems.
AN AGE-OLD ENTERPRISE PROBLEM: LARGE QUANTITIES OF LEGACY BRANCH TELECOM EQUIPMENT
There remains a considerable amount of legacy LAN technology out there in service in the field today. Enterprises for example are still relying on old WLAN equipment and proprietary premises-based software. This is inefficient and provides managed SD-WAN providers with an opportunity to take over branch networking equipment and service management with a more technically superior and elegant SD-Branch managed offering that brings agility, cost-effectiveness, and cost-savings to the platform in a similar way that SD-WAN provides such advantages.
Assuming the enterprise client is satisfied with their SD-WAN technology, the SD-WAN can continue to handle application-aware analytics and dynamic routing, and then hand over to the SD-Branch. This gives end users new levels of agility and operational efficiencies for corporate branch office networking.
