Juniper Networks Thursday announced it has extended its Ethernet VPN (EVPN)/Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) to the campus portfolio, enabling a common architecture for campus and data-center fabrics.
The move eliminates the challenges that enterprises face having separate campus and data-center networks that leverage different architectures, and the need to connect them. Referring to the new capability as a building block for an enterprise-wide fabric, Juniper says it helps enterprises unify their networks under a common architecture, which is key to building a simple, secure and automated multicloud.
With Juniper’s new EVPN-VXLAN campus architecture, enterprises can build campus networks using the same protocols that are popular in the most stable and efficient data centers that exist today, the vendor said.
To help customers with the deployment of the campus network architecture, Juniper is expanding its campus portfolio via resell agreements with Wi-Fi vendor Aerohive, providing a single solution for wired, Wi-Fi and WAN.
Juniper also announced it’s enhancing its Contrail SD-WAN capabilities with support for fine-grained Application Quality of Experience (AppQoE) and industry-first active-active clustering for Juniper’s NFX and SRX Series branch devices. The vendor also is expanding its five-step multicloud migration framework to include evolution paths for campus and branch networks. The migration provides enterprises with a set of best practices, natural technology insertions and recommended products and services to more easily complete the journey to a secure and automated multicloud.
