Juniper Networks: Advancing AI-Native Adoption in the Cloud

Juniper Networks aims to accelerate AI-native adoption for networking solutions via its UK cloud, designed to lower costs and improve customer experience

A cloud-native data platform can offer data centre organisations the improved flexibility and scalability needed to advance digital transformation efforts. 

As a leader in secure AI-native networking, Juniper Networks has announced its cloud-native solutions will now be supported by a cloud instance in the UK.

A ‘cloud instance’ refers to a virtual server instance from a public or private cloud network.

With the latest expansion of Juniper’s cloud platform, customers and partners within the UK region will benefit from local hosting and storage opportunities. This is in addition to other advantages already available via a microservices cloud architecture that include up to 90% reduction in network trouble and up to 85% lower operational expenditures.

A fully integrated AI-Native portfolio 

Juniper Networks continues to leverage AI for its IT operations, as it seeks to provide solutions for AI data centre networking. Its overall goal is to optimise data centres for AI and machine learning workloads.

Having recently been acquired by HPE at the start of 2024, Juniper Networks has been in the process of introducing several new products in recent months. These are designed to provide more reliable and measurable IT operations by facilitating simpler high-performance data centre networks specifically designed for AI.

The company prides itself on having a fully integrated AI-native portfolio of solutions. Its new solution is fast to deploy and easy to operate, as it hopes to offer the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO), operational expenses (OpEx), and the best end-to-end user experiences.

It brings the following products under a common Mist AI engine and microservices cloud infrastructure:
  • Wireless access
  • Wired access
  • SD-WAN
  • Indoor Location
  • Network Access Control
  • Marvis - the industry’s only AI-native virtual network assistant

It is becoming increasingly important to validate where data is stored due to data privacy concerns. In fact, a 2023 Telehouse report found that 95% of IT decision-makers view digital infrastructure as a risk to businesses as a result of large data surges - citing a need data centres to invest in cybersecurity.

Juniper Networks launching a UK cloud instance enables them to not only aid greater data centre innovations, but also adhere to regional security standards.

As the digital economy continues to rapidly evolve, UK organisations are starting to incorporate cloud-native AI services more frequently into their broader IT strategies. This is to emphasise their essential role in driving their businesses transformations forward.

“Juniper Networks is at the forefront of this revolution, having already achieved significant adoption of our AI-Native networking solutions by leading enterprises in the UK,” says Gos Hein van de Wouw, Vice President of Enterprise Sales EMEA at Juniper Networks.

“We are raising the bar even higher by spearheading once again with our AI-Native networking platform underlined by a UK Cloud, driven by the need for a sovereign cloud. We see this as a further catalyst to drive our current momentum towards experience-first digital transformation, foster innovation and lower operational costs for enterprises across the region.”
