Juniper Networks has introduced its next-generation network infrastructure for the distributed enterprise, including new additions to the SRX Series services gateways and a new line of EX Series ethernet switches.
According to the company, the new SRX240 can deliver up to five times the security performance for half the cost of competitive alternatives and the new EX Series delivers enterprise-class gigabit access connectivity at a lower list price than equivalent devices.
Offered as part of the Juniper Networks distributed enterprise services with the Network and Security Manager and Junos Software, customers can design and deploy efficient networks that provide performance and security at lower operational costs across locations of all sizes, the company added.
The four new additions to the SRX Series family are based on the dynamic services architecture, an extensible approach that simultaneously scales integrated services and network capacity to reduce the escalating demands and risks placed on the network, the company noted. These new products can support a complete suite of unified threat management and intrusion prevention capabilities to protect the network from the latest content borne threats, said Juniper.
Select SRX models feature hardware based content security acceleration for high-performance inline anti-virus and intrusion prevention services as well as power over ethernet and standards-based SIP voice gateway capability.
Juniper claims that the new EX2200 line of fixed-configuration ethernet switches offers an economical, plug-and-play, high-performance, low-power solution for access-layer deployments in branch offices and campus networks consuming less than two watts per port at a lower price than competitive fast ethernet enterprise access switches.
