Internet of Things
The IoT is transforming global business.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to nearly double in size to more than 29 billion connected devices by 2030 (Statista). While the numbers may be hard to visualize, one thing is clear: IoT is having a massive impact on the world’s enterprise communications networks.
From smart cities to predictive maintenance on factory floors, IoT can transform the way your business operates by delivering unprecedented levels of data visibility. IoT-driven insights, context, and automation allow you to reinvent your operational processes for cost-saving efficiencies and positive customer experiences that foster brand loyalty and help you increase revenues.
Juniper makes it a simple matter to scale your growing IoT environment with converged, AI-powered IT, operations technology (OT), and IoT solutions that work seamlessly across all your sites, networks, and cloud environments.
How Juniper can help
Juniper helps you manage IoT at any scale with a converged network fabric and solutions for IoT management, security, workload customization, and automation that are integrated across your end-to-end deployment.
Simplify IoT at scale
Deploy complex networks with confidence using Juniper’s carrier-grade IP/MPLS fabric that securely converges IT, OT, and IoT applications on a shared, six-nines physical network. Virtual network slicing eliminates having to run separate physical networks for each IoT use case. Use SD-WAN capabilities to easily provision IoT endpoint connectivity in remote locations to reach any cloud service.
Modernize with AI
Use AI to turn IoT data into automated actions that continually optimize network experiences. Juniper AI-driven wireless access points combine the latest Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® LE, and IoT technologies with streaming telemetry to enable customizable service levels and deliver near-real-time visibility into individual device experiences.
Protect and comply
With so many IoT devices online, you need intelligent threat detection and automated, distributed policy enforcement to work seamlessly across all your networks, clouds, and vendors. Juniper Connected Security delivers network-aware protection throughout your infrastructure, using networkwide data analytics and machine learning to safeguard your IoT devices against the latest threats.
Secure network access
As the number of IoT devices increases, enforcing access policies is critical to safeguarding your data and network assets. Juniper Mist Access Assurance delivers zero-trust access control, full-stack policy and segmentation assignments, and near-real-time visibility into individual device experiences in a flexible, yet simple authorization framework for guest, IoT, BYOD, and corporate devices.
In your data center, use software-defined Juniper Cloud-Native Contrail Networking (CN2) to easily customize where IoT application workloads and services run. Disaggregation, openness, and a standards-based approach deliver interoperability across all environments and applications, while full programmability allows you to scale, extend, and iterate IoT innovation.
Outletcity Metzingen transforms the shopping experience
Outletcity strives to offer visitors the best shopping experience across any touchpoint. To achieve greater digitalization of the shopping experience, it deployed Juniper wireless networking, powered by Mist AI. The Wi-Fi covers 40,000 square meters of retail floor space as well as outdoor areas and parking garages.
Great Wi-Fi is particularly important for Outletcity’s many international visitors. Optimized Wi-Fi also supports Outletcity’s mobile app and loyalty club as well as retail analytics, and COVID-safe shopping.
