Your customers depend on the compelling services you provide—and your business success depends on how quickly and cost-effectively you can develop and deliver them. One way to get there is through automation. Juniper’s broadband network gateway (BNG) solution offers a pragmatic and incremental path to network and service automation that gives you control over what you automate, and when.
Juniper MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers give you an ideal BNG platform, providing hierarchical QoS, high session density, and high bandwidth. BNG features are supported across the entire MX Series portfolio, from the vMX, the industry’s first full-featured, carrier-grade virtual router, through the MX2020, the industry’s highest-capacity, highest-density edge router.
Performing as BNGs, our MX Series routers also leverage subscriber management and deep packet inspection capabilities to deliver highly customized subscriber and application-aware services, without the need for manual intervention. When used in combination with the Contrail Cloud Platform, our BNGs can also steer traffic into complex service chains that include third-party virtual network functions (VNFs) for further value-added service customization.
The Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET) provides a flexible automation and orchestration framework. It’s built on open APIs, standards, and protocols that allow you to integrate Junos® OS platforms—such as the MX Series routers—with third-party-developed applications, so that you can further customize and monetize the network. And using the Junos Telemetry Interface, our BNGs offer granular, high-frequency telemetry streaming that can be injected into analytics engines and performance optimization applications to enhance your operational environment.
Junos Space offers a suite of tools that automate operational and configuration tasks. Our purpose-built applications, including Edge Services Director, Security Director, Services Activation, and Virtual Director, work together to help you automate service configuration and provisioning—freeing you and your team to spend more time on higher-value activities. You can also use the Junos Space SDK toolkit to create custom applications that integrate with your current OSS.
