Service Overview

As networks evolve to accommodate exponential traffic growth generated by cloud-native applications and emerging technologies, service providers, cloud providers, and enterprises need real-time information to help them maintain control over their dynamic and unpredictable environments. Getting more visibility into network utilization, service health, device health, and traffic behavior is key to managing networks, reducing time to resolution, and achieving higher service availability. Juniper offers Juniper Paragon Insights, a cloud-native WAN automation software product that is part of the Juniper Paragon Automation portfolio. The solution helps operators get more network visibility and act on it with closed-loop automation.

Juniper Professional Services offers Paragon Insights Deployment Service, which provides the seamless deployment of Paragon Insights in your network. Paragon Insights Deployment Service is designed to support new deployments and enable rapid adoption of Paragon Insights software. With expert guidance and deployment support from the Juniper Professional Services team, your operations teams can shift their focus to the tools that support your strategic business initiatives. 

 

Service Description

Deploying new technologies and products is resource intensive. Networks are becoming increasingly complex and traffic patterns in WANs are continuously evolving. Additionally, operations and engineering teams are under constant pressure to deliver results, deploy new solutions and technologies, and optimize network infrastructure in minimal time. Juniper Professional Services consultants can help operations and engineering teams overcome these challenges. Juniper® ParagonInsights Deployment Service can remove the initial burden of implementation and reduce time for deployment in a production environment. Additionally, a Paragon Insights Playbook Extension subscription can extend the monitoring capability with additional telemetry sensors for the network and apply machine learning (ML) to new data sets.

This service minimizes implementation time and costs while optimizing operational efficiency. With Juniper’s deep network knowledge, advanced skillsets, and expertise in Paragon Insights software, you gain the most from your investment in infrastructure and automation.
