Juniper Paragon

Deliver speed, agility, and best-in-class service experiences

WAN automation is fundamental to delivering consistent, exceptional experiences. With manual or semi-automated network management, device onboarding and service activation can take days or weeks. Service deployments often fail. User experience can be inconsistent. Outages are costly. Repairs are lengthy. And constant change in traffic patterns makes it impossible to keep up with the configuration changes required to guarantee service levels in real time.

The Juniper Paragon portfolio addresses all these challenges so you can achieve your desired business outcomes, use case by use case. Use it to accelerate innovation, increase operational efficiency, and, most importantly, empower engineering and operations teams to deliver amazing service experiences.

How Juniper can help

Intent-based service orchestration and closed-loop automation assures service experiences throughout the device, network, and service lifecycle, from Day 0 to Day 2+. Paragon speeds up scenario planning, service design, onboarding, and service assurance. It keeps operations ahead of issues so you can guarantee that services are deployed quickly and right first time.

Ready for service in minutes

Intent-based service orchestration avoids weeks of manual effort and service outages caused by human error, while AI-enabled device onboarding validates hardware and software authenticity, images the latest software, and secures zero-touch configuration. The result is highly resilient and secures networks and services in a fraction of the time.

Deliver service intent

With intent-based service orchestration and closed-loop, autonomous networking, you can leverage model-based service designs that align to the latest open standards, giving you repeatable results while maintaining the flexibility to configure and even customize your services to meet your business objectives. Meanwhile, active assurance and autonomous networking ensures that your live services continue to meet stated intent with little to no human intervention.

Actively verify service quality

Assure your network’s ability to support service quality before deployment, then continually and automatically validate service performance against service-level objectives. Locate, troubleshoot, and fix service issues before your customers are impacted. Non-intrusive, active test agents provide service-quality metrics, from users to cloud, by running synthetic transactions across the data plane.

Gain network insights

Measure service quality. Normalize data across network domains and vendors using streaming telemetry. Analyze the data using a library of algorithms, including machine learning, and obtain actionable insights on network and service performance. Paragon pinpoints anomalies that would impact contracted service levels and drives closed-loop workflows for remedial action.

Guarantee service levels

Automate service path placement to meet or exceed service-level objectives, optimize capacity utilization, and avoid network congestion. A topological view lets you make offline changes and run scenario planning without impacting the live network. Automate traffic engineering beyond what standard routing protocols can provide to deliver a best-in-class service experience.

Streamline operations

With Juniper Paragon, you can navigate the skilled labor shortage by dramatically boosting productivity and increasing operational efficiency. Reduce the time it takes to perform common operating tasks, minimize manual process-related errors, and do more with the resources you already have.

Three gears working together

Simplify deployment

Paragon is cloud-ready, with all functionality operating from a single common platform architecture. Standard APIs enable simple interoperability with your IT and OSS/BSS systems and multi-vendor support, while standard modeling and design languages lower the skills barrier to adoption in your operations teams.
