Comprehensive Guide Details How to Merge Networks Seamlessly and Improve Network Design to Maximize Business Productivity
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 26, 2010 — Juniper Networks® (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) and John Wiley & Sons today announced the recent release of Network Mergers and Migrations, a comprehensive Junos® design and implementation guide that provides network administrators and designers with a variety of inter-networking case studies for network migration activities.
Network Mergers and Migrations describes the challenges that involve networks in modern environments and covers planning, design and implementation to ensure successful completion at each migration phase. The guide examines both enterprise and service provider scenarios—from MPLS Layer 3 VPN migration approaches to comprehensive network protocol consolidation and integration—as well as discusses alternatives and leveraging additional specific services and the Junos Platform.
Network Mergers and Migrations is not about managing the daily changes that occur in networks, rather, it is about those monstrous shifts in networks: how to plan them, how to lay the groundwork for them, and most importantly, how to bring them to fruition effectively and safely.
"Few to date would take on this subject because it requires change on a grand scale," said Glenn Osaka, senior vice president, Juniper Services, Juniper Networks. "But if you approach it from the Junos perspective—a universal operating environment for all network devices—the impossible seems very doable. That's the beauty of what the authors have done. They've illustrated a new approach to networking that takes the complexity out of network migration, resulting in smooth and clean transitions between different network implementations."
Published by John Wiley & Sons, out of its United Kingdom editorial offices, Network Mergers and Migrations is available wherever printed books are sold. For more information or to read a sample chapter, visit: www.juniper.net/books.
