Enable sustainable business growth with Cloud Metro
Date / Time: Tuesday, August 30, 2022, 11:00 a.m. New York
sponsored by

The emergence of modern technologies such as 5G, cloud-based services, and application use cases present new possibilities and business growth opportunities for service providers. The April 2022 Heavy Reading global survey of 76 service providers shows that most are shifting away from the traditional metro, and are at some stage of metro network modernization, driven by both business and application drivers.

AI-ops-driven automation, future-proof network systems, transport (100GE, 400GE), service assurance, and network security, are service providers' topmost metro requirements to build a future metro infrastructure and deliver differentiated user experiences. It is time to rethink current metro design beyond connectivity.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • How current metro fails to thrive in the prevailing digitalization era
  • Why service providers should consider moving to Cloud Metro
  • How Juniper Cloud Metro sets service providers on the path to sustainable outcomes
