Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is transforming global business

In terms of scale, the Internet of Things (IoT) is taking over the network. With over 20 billion connected devices worldwide, the numbers are hard to visualize, and even this may be a low estimate. As a technology, IoT is transformational, enriching data, adding context into processes, and providing unprecedented levels of visibility across organizations.

The combination of IoT and the right solutions unlocks efficiencies to ensure a positive customer experience, which drives stickiness into brand and product loyalty, ultimately resulting in continually increased revenue.

IoT should be a crucial component in everyone's evolving business strategy. From a global manufacturer or critical infrastructure provider to an enterprise looking to manage and optimize office or retail network connections, all are looking for IoT to provide their business development, control security and ensure a competitive edge to service delivery.

Only Juniper Networks can genuinely unlock your network's full potential, managing IoT at any scale with seamless connectivity and security that work across multiple locations, on any network, in any cloud, and anywhere.

How Juniper can help

Juniper helps you manage IoT at any scale and unleashes network efficiencies that build customer loyalty and drive increased revenue.

Simplify the design, deployment, and operation of large-scale IoT networks.

Deploy complex networks with confidence. Juniper’s carrier-grade IP/MPLS fabric allows you to converge IT, OT, and IoT applications securely on a shared physical network that delivers six-nines reliability and tremendous cost efficiencies.


Our SDN and NFV overlays use virtual network slicing to accommodate diverse IoT use cases, and there’s no need to run separate physical networks for each. And fully network-agnostic SD-WAN capabilities let you easily provision connectivity for IoT endpoints in remote locations to reach any cloud services.

Accelerate innovation with ease of customization and integration

With Contrail Networking, you can easily customize where IoT application workloads and services run. Disaggregation, openness, and a standards-based approach deliver full interoperability. Full support of programmability allows you to scale, extend, and iterate IoT innovation.

Leverage the scale and agility of a modern network with AI

Today’s network needs to change based on users' needs and connected devices; experience is the new uptime – connected is not the same as productive.


You need AI to change the volumes of data created by IoT into actionable insights, applied automatically to optimize network operations. With Juniper Networks Wireless Access solutions, it is possible to ensure the user and IoT experience with customizable Service Level Expectations (SLEs) created with streaming Access Point telemetry.


Our solutions do not stop with WiFi connections. Juniper leads the industry by including WiFe and Bluetooth®LE and IoT in our enterprise access points; leveraging this with Juniper Mist Cloud and Mist AI enables near real-time analysis to ensure the best possible experience for all wireless clients.

Protect IoT data, systems, and critical infrastructure while ensuring compliance

With so many devices on the network, you need real-time visibility, intelligent advanced threat detection, and automated distributed policy enforcement capabilities that work seamlessly across any network asset, any cloud, and any vendor. Juniper Connected Security activates your entire network, leveraging data for analytics and machine learning to protect your IoT devices against the latest threats. And with automation and device-profiling integration, IoT network segmentation and access control become easy.
