Juniper Networks has unveiled three new mobility offerings, which it claims to address mobile operators’ need to optimise traffic in their mobile networks, while also providing a path for migration from 3G to 4G and LTE networks.
The new offerings, part of Juniper’s Project Falcon initiative, are based on the Junos software platform and MX 3D Series Universal Edge Routers, which deliver 3D Scaling to help networks scale dynamically to support more bandwidth, subscribers and services.
According to Juniper, the new offerings include Juniper Traffic Direct, which optimises mobile data traffic by combining intelligent subscriber and application policies with MX 3D Series scaling to offload bulk data traffic directly to the internet; the Juniper Media Flow, which includes a Juniper VXA Series content delivery engine and Ankeena software to provide video and content delivery up to 10Gbps per engine.
In addition, the new offerings also include Juniper Mobile Core Evolution, which will provide an open and secure mobile packet core to monetise 3G and 4G services on the same network. It will leverage MX 3D Series routers and Junos software to deliver 3G and 4G gateway capabilities and will enable new services based on Junos SDK, while offering built-in security features to protect subscribers.
The company said that the Mobile Core Evolution will also enable services migration from 3G to 4G networks to be achieved with purchase of an additional software license for existing Juniper MX Series customers.
Stefan Dyckerhoff, executive VP and general manager of infrastructure products group at Juniper, said: With today’s news, Juniper is fueling the mobile broadband evolution with groundbreaking technology and an open ecosystem that paves the way for cost-effective migration to 4G technologies. No one else can offer immediate TCO relief for mobile operators, while delivering unmatched 3D scale, built-in security, and open platforms to monetize new services.
