The title slide from the video is shown. It includes the headline, “What is CN2? (Juniper Cloud-Native Contrail Networking).” It’s illustrated with an abstract drawing of a network with a cloud in the center with a circle and points leading to a computer and colored dots. The Juniper logo is shown, along with “TechLibrary” in the upper right corner.

Curious about CN2? Here’s what you need to know.

Juniper Cloud-Native Contrail Networking (CN2) is a Kubernetes-native, software-defined networking (SDN) platform that automates infrastructure as a service (IaaS) operations and virtual network lifecycle management. Learn more about how you can easily use CN2 to create dynamic network policies and the many other benefits of using CN2 networking in this short video.
