SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced the availability of Junosphereâ„˘ Lab, a new virtual environment that revolutionizes the way service providers and enterprises design, test and operate networks. Junosphere is a first-of-its-kind cloud offering that allows network operators to create and run networks on-demand, enabling network modeling, testing and planning at a scale that is practically impossible to achieve with physical equipment. Using Junosphere Lab, companies can "rent" networks for as little as $50 per day, enabling them to speed modeling projects by over 30 percent and lower total cost of ownership by as much as 90 percent when compared to the alternative of building a physical lab(1).
Junosphere Lab overcomes traditional challenges associated with network modeling and design by harnessing the power of virtualization to reduce reliance on overburdened physical network labs and dramatically improving time efficiency by transforming how organizations approach network modeling. It can be used to speed service introduction, plan more effectively and reduce the risk of network changes. Using Junosphere Lab, network personnel can create and model virtual networks running the JunosÂ® operating system as a substitute for or supplement to physical test labs, eliminating significant power, cooling and space requirements. It also provides a simple, cost effective tool for training and maintaining the skills of technicians and NOC personnel.
"Junosphere appears to be a powerful tool to test new architectures and evaluate new ways to enhance our network operations, security and convergence capabilities for both current and future needs," said David Roy, network engineer, France Telecom / Orange. "Junosphere Lab allows us to test new prototypes in a virtual environment and enable modeling at a level of scale that is often impossible in the physical world, while significantly reducing risk and costs."
