Network Director

Visualize, analyze, and control the entire enterprise network.

Junos Space Network Director lets IT staff visualize, analyze, and manage the enterprise network—data center and campus, physical and virtual, wired and wireless—through a single pane of glass.

    Network Director


    Junos® Space Network Director provides a smart, comprehensive, and automated network management solution that enables administrators to visualize, analyze, and control the entire enterprise network—all through a single management screen.

    In the data center, Network Director helps your IT staff manage and synchronize both physical and virtual environments. This continuity ensures that network policies follow workloads as they move from server to server or from virtual machine to virtual machine (VM to VM).

    In the campus, Network Director automates routine management tasks such as network provisioning and troubleshooting to dramatically improve operational efficiency and reliability.

    Network Director also integrates with VMware vCenter and vRealize Operations (vROps), incorporating key management functions that address the challenges posed by the rapid adoption of virtualization across data centers and clouds. In addition, Network Director offers sophisticated analytics for high-performance data centers, while open RESTful APIs support service orchestration integration with third-party platforms.
