Just Add Water

You can make everything from coffee and pancakes to Tang and Chia pets just by adding water. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet found anything that easy in golf.


While not quite as simple as just adding water, Juniper Networks Cloud-Enabled Branch (CEB), announced today, is a significant solution that lets enterprises and managed service providers easily create and manage branch office networking services on-demand.



The CEB suite is part of Juniper Networks Unite, which we announced last Fall, and helps companies accelerate deployment of real-time services and applications across branch locations using network automation with zero touch provisioning and customization controls.


The suite includes SD-WAN functionality and our vSRX series virtual firewall to enable secure content routing; Contrail Service Orchestration which is designed to enable both Juniper and third-party services to be easily supported and integrated with no disruption to existing applications; NFX Series Network Services Platforms, which operate as secure, software-driven, on-premises devices, that deliver high-performance functionality with added automation and the flexibility to run multiple virtual services; third-party services and applications, such as Ruckus WLAN Controller and Silver Peak WAN Optimization; and security capabilities with Juniper Networks® Sky Advanced Threat Prevention as part of Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Network, to proactively identify and intelligently respond to threats and enforce polices across all branch locations.


The suite offers a number of deployment possibilities. You can create a distributed enterprise where you sell, build, transfer and integrate the customer’s branch with services, which are then managed by the customer. Or you can act as an MSP where you build and provide a service. Customers use a self-service portal to provision services as they need them.


Check out Partner Center, where you’ll find valuable resources, including a technolgy decision maker presentation and an FAQ. We’ll also be offering new product training and a webinar to teach you how to tell the cloud-enabled branch story. These will be available on Juniper Learning Academy.


Your enterprise customers need a modernized network to speed up business expansion and improve employee productivity and collaboration. So why not give them a cloud-enabled branch that will transform their enterprise operations with new services and applications that are dynamically delivered through a flexible and open architecture?


Maybe not as simple as just adding water, but close.
