Juniper's Kriens Stuck On Traffic

LAS VEGAS -- Interop -- Just days after coughing up $469 million for Redline Networks Inc. and Peribit Networks Inc., Juniper Networks Inc.’s (Nasdaq: JNPR) CEO Scott Kriens shared some insight into his grand plans for the hardware vendor at a packed meeting of partners at Interop here. Traffic processing is clearly the name of the game for Juniper. The company, he said, aims to handle application traffic from the moment a user presses "enter" on a device, through the data center and the application processor, and then out through the transmission line.

Kriens, who started his speech by telling attendees about his early career as a calculator salesman, did not give any indication of Juniper’s future M&A plans. But he said there are still “billions and billions of dollars” to be made in the traffic processing market.
