0:08 um i'm jeff aaron i'm head of enterprise

0:10 marketing here and a lot of you know

0:12 sujello he's evp and ex-co-founder mist

0:15 and head to the age of an enterprise

0:16 what they did do is want to set the

0:18 stage a little bit right and i know you

0:19 hate this pyramid slide because we have

0:21 to bring in other business units and cj

0:22 always thinks it's all about the age of

0:23 an enterprise right but you know

0:26 juniper's mantra is all about experience

0:27 first networking right and so that's the

0:29 one thing i want you guys to keep in the

0:30 back your head as we go through this

0:31 presentation right r2 north is all about

0:34 how do you make user experiences better

0:36 whether it's more reliable wi-fi whether

0:37 it's more personalized experiences

0:39 location and how do you make operator

0:41 experiences better like through better

0:42 automation through self-driving networks

0:44 right as we say you know experience is

0:46 the new uptime and so that's really what

0:48 we we focus on all our product set and

0:50 our new features and we're going to

0:51 continue to um to do that here

0:54 what's popping up there

0:55 um also um again to level set you know a

0:58 little bit of our journey which you're

0:59 going to hear a lot more from bob and

1:00 other folks is you know we came from

1:02 this um you know that was a i like to

1:04 say we were an ai company that kind of

1:05 dabbled in wireless right yeah um and

1:07 then we were acquired by juniper in 2019

1:11 2019 first of april and then uh after

1:13 that we brought in the ex portfolio

1:15 which then brought wired underneath this

1:16 missed umbrella and missed ai engine for

1:18 for uh for that um then we acquired 128

1:21 technologies to bring in the sd-wan uh

1:23 recently required white sand to bring in

1:25 uh some of the knack stuff into the

1:26 portfolio and so it just keeps getting

1:28 better um and so again we like to say

1:31 that we're we're the only vendor in

1:32 there that actually has a common cloud

1:34 common ai engine across the full stack

1:36 from from client to cloud and actually

1:37 in fact the client pieces can become

1:39 even more relevant when we talk about

1:40 some announcements today um so you know

1:42 we're really excited about this and it

1:43 continues to grow in fact you know one

1:45 it's your baby so why don't you talk a

1:46 little bit about the the agent

1:47 enterprise well i think you know the key

1:49 part is

1:51 the vision is resonating

1:53 for those of you who remember us sam you

1:55 remember us for sure i was he was one of

1:57 the first calls when i left cisco to

1:59 start mist with bob

2:01 we are

2:02 not of a billion dollars

2:06 how am i how's that for growth

2:09 right the ai driven enterprise has grown

2:11 33 year on year and you know what's

2:13 happening to the market what i get

2:16 excited about is the mystified revenue

2:19 right has grown 135 percent year on year

2:23 you know but these are proof points that

2:26 the vision is resonating but let's get

2:29 to something really exciting and

2:31 important so

2:33 if you think about it

2:35 if you really think about it when we

2:37 started we came and presented to you in

2:39 2016.

2:41 you have been a part of our journey with

2:43 us for some of you actually i think i

2:46 met one of you it was wait probably at

2:48 the

2:49 event in vegas

2:52 we are on a mission

2:53 to unleash the network for the next

2:55 decade and whether you like it or not

2:57 you're a part of that mission with us

2:59 right and most importantly

3:02 beyond the fact that i'm appreciative of

3:05 the support and guidance we get

3:06 the key part

3:08 is the mobility field day is a platform

3:12 for us

3:13 at mist and now at juniper ai driven

3:16 enterprise to bring new innovations to

3:18 the market

3:20 that's what i get crazily excited about

3:22 we're going to announce three

3:24 innovations today

3:25 the first one

3:28 well let's just go for the bill the

3:30 first one you know you you will see the

3:33 ex 4100 this is not about

3:37 yet another piece of hardware it's

3:38 fundamentally about we are manifesting

3:41 or continuing to manifest ai

3:44 to the wired and wireless network 4100

3:48 is just another form factor

3:50 which completes that comprehensive

3:52 portfolio but what i'm most excited

3:54 about what bob started this journey

3:57 in is the fact that we are bringing

4:01 yet another switch born in the cloud

4:04 under the supervision of marvis that is

4:07 the ex 4100 born in the cloud with ai

4:10 coursing through its veins right oh i

4:11 like that

4:13 the second one and you know what

4:16 there was a lot of discussion about this

4:18 title which we're going to talk about

4:21 and people just said what does that even

4:22 mean and my stake was my job is to talk

4:25 about it bob's job is to explain it okay

4:28 we are the first ones in the industry to

4:31 be bringing location to ai ops and while

4:35 you're scratching as to what that even

4:37 means

4:38 think about it

4:39 connectivity we all know we love it's

4:41 been the bread and butter for us for a

4:43 long time

4:45 we started talking about location and

4:46 how do we bring the 360 view we're now

4:48 bringing ai ops to that

4:51 last but not the least which becomes

4:53 extremely critical and if you were to

4:55 around look at the third innovation

4:58 marvelous is not new to you but marvis

5:01 continues to go wider

5:03 bringing more and more third-party

5:06 data sources in to make the marvis

5:08 decisions better

5:09 marvel's continues to go deeper

5:12 and bob's going to talk about some of

5:14 the new algorithms which have been

5:16 introduced

5:17 and most importantly as it goes wider as

5:20 it goes deeper as it starts going

5:22 towards proactive i.t the key part i

5:25 want to say is it is now already at its

5:29 sixth generation

5:31 2016 2022 do the math a number comes up

5:36 do the math on marvis on the sixth

5:38 generation that's what this is all about

5:40 so

5:41 fundamentally extremely excited to be

5:43 here

5:44 this is the platform my only request as

5:47 you go through the day and you listen to

5:48 my team and talk about the amazingness

5:50 they are bringing to the market the key
