Juniper Networks now also offers SD-WAN as-a-service from the cloud

Juniper Networks has now presented a cloud-based as-a-service version of its SD-WAN solution Contrail Service Orchestration. It now also offers an easily scalable, easily managed and secure network infrastructure, including the WAN, LAN and wireless networks used for this purpose.

According to Juniper Networks, this cloud-based solution offers enterprise users the simplicity of cloud-based applications combined with the central orchestration functionality of the Contrail solution for network infrastructures. The cloud solution therefore also includes all the functionality that Contrail offers for network automation, security, analytics and artificial intelligence solutions.

The cloud solution is particularly suitable for campus environments that use the vendor’s WAN solutions. This gives users not only a new user model, but also a variety of other functionality.

Available functionality

The now available functionality of the cloud solution includes support for a wider range of passive redundant hybrid WAN connections, internet breakouts at the CPE at the edge of the WAN or central WAN hubs and topologies such as hub & spoke, partial mesh and dynamic full mesh.

In addition, for central LAN and WAN management for campus environments, Juniper Networks’ EX Ethernet switches connected to a single or dual WAN gateway or NFX or SRX series network equipment can also be set up from a central location to fully automate LAN and WAN policies and provisioning processes for secure connections to so-called industry offices.

Security and easier adjustments

Integration with the solutions of cloud security provider Zscaler and possibilities for the management of next generation firewalls of the SRX and NFX series, including Juniper Sky ATP, also provide more security.

Furthermore, the cloud solution makes Juniper Networks’ SD-WAN product a flexible solution that enables companies to quickly adapt to new circumstances and further develop their network. Juniper’s open standards-based architecture and open APIs also support seamless system integration and NetOps workflow automation.

Integration of fog technology

The solution is the first to also implement the technology for Artificial Intelligence-controlled WLAN environments of the recently acquired Mist Systems. In this way, users can access and analyse operational data about their wireless network, WAN, LAN and security.
