Juniper Networks has introduced a virtualized version of its flagship MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routing platform to deliver a full-featured, carrier-grade virtualized router.
By virtualizing the company’s flagship routing platform — first introduced in 2006 and today powers most of the world’s top 100 service providers — Juniper is taking the MX to the cloud. The software-driven technology delivers the agility to scale up and scale out as quickly as customer business needs dictate. Customers can combine the vMX with Juniper’s complete physical router portfolio delivering the tools service providers and enterprises need to maintain a common operations environment for both virtual and physical routers, while matching network investment with revenue growth.
With the vMX, carrier-grade routing can be deployed in the time it takes to spin up a virtual machine, scaled elastically with virtual capacity, and if the need arises, migrated to the high-performance physical MX Series platforms for high-volume workloads. This provides customers with greater freedom to start small, experiment with new services, grow rapidly and stay profitable throughout the entire service lifecycle.
