Pics: Meet 'Big Bertha' at Juniper's Data Center Lab!

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Innovation Showcase -- Service providers shopping for networking gear want to take the product out for a test drive. But testing a router or switch isn't like test-driving a car -- you can't just take it out to the freeway and back.

Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR)'s Proof of Concept Lab is the place where the networking vendor shows off its gear in simulations of customers' own network environments.

We had a chance to tour the Juniper lab as part of their press and analyst day here.

The lab has more than 900 10Gbit/s ports and 40 100Gbit/s ports on 134 racks. "We can probably generate more traffic in this lab than the entire Internet has today," Juniper Major Account Manager Jesse Burmeister, our tour guide, said.
