Juniper announces AI-native networking platform

Juniper Networks has announced a new AI-native networking platform designed to help IT operators improve user experiences while lowering operational costs.

Juniper says the new platform unifies an enterprise’s campus, branch and data centre networking solutions with a common AI engine and associated virtual network assistant. The end-to-end AI for IT Operations (AIOps) tool can be used for automated troubleshooting and end-to-end networking assurance.

The platform promises an up to 85% decrease in operational expenditures compared to traditional solutions by eliminating up to 90% of network trouble tickets and 85% of IT onsite visits, and includes two enhancements to Juniper’s AI-native virtual network assistant Marvis, including a new AI-native networking digital experience twin, Maris Minis, and a version of the assistant for the data centre.

Juniper is also expanding its AI Data Center solution with new capabilities including improvements aimed at providing faster and more efficient processing of AI and machine learning traffic over Ethernet. The range is also being augmented with new routers and switches capable of supporting high 800 Gigabit Ethernet port density, as well as the necessary AI infrastructure protocols.

Juniper CEO Rami Rahim said the new platform demonstrates the company’s belief that AI is the biggest technology inflection point since the internet itself.

“At Juniper, we have seen firsthand how our game-changing AIOps has saved thousands of global enterprises significant time and money while delighting the end user with a superior experience. Our AI-Native Networking Platform represents a bold new direction for Juniper, and for our industry,” he said. “By extending AIOps from the end user all the way to the application, and across every network domain in between, we are taking a big step toward making network outages, trouble tickets and application downtime things of the past.”
