Juniper Networks, an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced that Vodafone has selected the company as one of its software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) vendors for its enterprise-focused SDN portfolio, ‘Ready Network.’
Vodafone’s portfolio will comprise flexible, cloud-based services that are designed to underpin digital business at scale, helping enterprises to compete effectively using agile, open and fast infrastructure with zero-touch deployment.
Juniper provides a secure, virtualized and dynamic network platform for one of Vodafone’s SD-WAN offerings. The solution delivers better control and cost optimization by allowing enterprises to manage multiple sites using a combination of WAN connectivity types to ensure application-level quality of experience. Juniper’s solution is built upon universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) that allows multiple virtualized network functions to be delivered from a single device.
Vodafone’s enterprise customers will now have a self-care portal providing real-time, end-to-end visibility and analysis of network performance, as well as centralized selection, provisioning and management of their required WAN services. For example, bandwidth-on-demand can be dialed up and down to suit traffic flows across the WAN in response to changing business requirements, and centralized security policies can be adjusted and enforced across the network.
