- Advanced Security Technologies – The new security functionality for mobile devices, including smart phones and iPads, and data centers protects the network and the integrity of the information it carries.
- Internet2 – Juniper donated $2.5 million to support the development of the new, nationwide 100 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) network that will enable advanced networking features for more than 200,000 public institutions.
- A New Chipset – The Junos® Trio chipset requires less cooling and drives down energy consumption per unit of bandwidth, while increasing capacity and throughput.
- The Next-Generation Core Router - The Juniper Networks® T4000 Core Router consumes just 2.7 watts of power per Gigabit of processed traffic.
- A New "3-2-1" Architecture – Juniper's approach to data center networks reduces the amount of equipment deployed in the data center, from three layers to two and ultimately to one, reducing waste, energy consumption, operational costs and complexity.
- Reduced Lifecycle Impacts - Juniper is using bamboo in its packaging, which is 100 percent recyclable and more environmentally friendly than paper pulp, and shifted from a just-in-time supply strategy to a more distributed model, which reduced shipping costs (up to seven times the savings) and overall transport emissions.

- Carbon Intensity – Juniper set and met a target to reduce its carbon footprint by five percent for each employee. The company continues to report its emissions via the Carbon Disclosure Project .
- Efficient Lab Design and Layout – Juniper's innovative approach to its labs reduced energy consumption, garnering the company a savings of $200,000 a year for each 200 rack lab.
"Because Juniper's solutions underpin the world's communications infrastructure, we take our responsibility seriously around ensuring that we are doing all we can to reduce risks, increase efficiencies, and lower the total cost of ownership so that people around the globe have access and can truly benefit from the network. We value total network efficiency, which means looking at its entire lifecycle and finding ways to reduce impacts and mitigate the resource and carbon constraints affecting us all."
