Calling it the most significant upgrade to its MX Series routers in more than a decade, Juniper Networks Tuesday announced the fifth generation of its MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform.
It includes new software that provides programmability, performance and flexibility for rapid service deployment in the cloud, today and down the road. The platform targets service providers that operate complex networks and will host resource-intensive applications such as 5G and secure SD-WAN-based managed services, the vendor said.
Without a new generation of product, networks and existing infrastructure are sure to become overextended due to these resource-intensive applications as well as an influx of machine data coming from IoT sensors, a distributed telco edge and cloud computing.
“Cloud is eating the world, 5G is ramping up, IoT is presenting a host of new challenges, and security teams simply can’t keep up with the sheer volume of cyber attacks on today’s network. One thing service providers should not have to worry about among all this is the unknown of what lies ahead,” said Manoj Leelanivas, executive vice president and chief product officer at Juniper Networks, who’s been in that role since April.
Here’s what’s included in Tuesday’s announcement:
The MX10008 and MX100016 will be available during the second half of the year. Juniper Penta Silicon-powered line cards for the MX960, MX480 and MX240 will be available in the first quarter of 2019. New CUPS support will be available in the first half of next year.
