Media Advisory: Juniper Networks Brings the Self-Driving Network to MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress

Stand 102, Paris, France: March 21-24 2017

March 13, 2017

SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwired – March 13, 2017) – Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced details of its participation at the MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris as a Diamond Sponsor. The event will be the gathering point for more than 1,500 representatives from service providers, networking companies and enterprises from 65 countries to discuss the evolution of MPLS, software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).

This year’s overarching theme is how to evolve from network management to orchestration. In this context, Juniper will be advocating autonomous networks that can configure, monitor and maintain themselves, adapting to their operating environments with little or no human intervention.

SDN and NFV have been in the vanguard of network automation and virtualization for the past five years, heralding the digital disruption and transformation of business models globally. While these technologies are indeed critical elements of today’s and the future’s network, Juniper sees the need for a harmonizing and more complete vision — the Self-Driving Network.
