Juniper Networks Application Acceleration Platform Completes Validation Testing with Oracle E-Business Suite

Juniper's WXC Platform Helps Reduce Risk, Enable Increased Productivity and Lower Operational Costs for Distributed Enterprises

SUNNYVALE, Calif., September 29, 2008 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that the company's WXC 590 application acceleration platform has successfully completed validation testing with the Oracle® E-Business Suite 12.0 to help reduce the effects of WAN latency, network congestion and packet loss, providing distributed enterprises with superior end-to-end performance of Oracle applications.

The Juniper Networks WXC is a best-in-class application acceleration platform that provides distributed enterprises with a cost-effective, scalable solution for accelerating applications over the WAN, helping businesses and government agencies deliver fast and consistent application response times, maximize WAN investments, and control and prioritize mission-critical applications and services. Validation testing through the Oracle Application Integration Architecture for Partners Initiative has shown that with the WXC platform inserted in-line between the client and application, Oracle E-Business Suite functionality is maintained.

"Juniper's WXC application acceleration platform has been tested and shows simplified business processes," said Tom Herrmann, vice president, Oracle ISV Management and Programs. "Validation with Oracle E-Business Suite enables our joint customers to overcome the obstacles posed by a distributed and extended enterprise, which depends on fast, reliable and secure communications across the WAN."

Key test results revealed:

  • The WXC platform provides robust compression of HTML, HTTP/HTTPS and Oracle Forms traffic, reducing payload and improving response time.
  • The WXC delivers best-in-class quality of service (QoS), allowing prioritization and bandwidth allocation for mission-critical E-Business Suite applications over non-business critical traffic.

"As a Certified Advantage Partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork, our ongoing relationship with Oracle helps us interoperate with its applications and is part of our commitment to setting new metrics in high-performance networking and providing best-in-class application acceleration solutions to our customers," said Ross Roesner, vice president, WAN Acceleration at Juniper Networks. "Many companies and government agencies today rely on Oracle applications to support their business operations. With Juniper's innovative features that accelerate large volumes of traffic across a broad range of applications, high-performance businesses can use their applications to not only meet strategic objectives, but accelerate a competitive advantage."
