Juniper's NaaS Capabilities Bring Flexibility to AIOps Platform for MSPs

By Greg Tavarez

Juniper’s wired, wireless, security and SD-WAN solutions, powered by sixth generation Mist AI and a modern microservices cloud, are easy to deploy and scale, making it ideal for small and large companies alike. According to a market share report from industry analyst firm 650 Group published in Q1 2022, Juniper experienced a revenue growth of more than 117% and is among the top 10 WLAN vendors.

To further facilitate the deployment and management of wired, wireless and secure SD-WAN network services via Juniper MSP and reseller partners, the secure, AI-driven networks provider unveiled new Network as a Service (NaaS) enhancements to its AIOps platform.

Juniper’s new NaaS capabilities further facilitate its partners’ ability to deploy, operate and manage services via the cloud.

Juniper consolidated wired, wireless and SD-WAN network management into a single, cloud-based portal with insights and automation driven by Mist AI. A new AI-driven dashboard provides a holistic, multitenant view into the real-time performance of wired, wireless and secure SD-WAN networks. Because of this, network operators will continually optimize end-user experiences from client-to-cloud, saving time and money with faster problem resolution and fewer on-site visits.

Juniper will make it easier to operationalize management of cloud subscriptions. Licenses are available in one location for scalable inventory management, and partners and customers can move licenses seamlessly between hardware devices to maximize design flexibility and minimize investment costs.

Juniper also added new payment options that are available via Juniper Financial Services. Juniper now offers periodic subscription services on the AI-driven Enterprise portfolio in addition to previous licenses. These options ensure that the Juniper solution fits the needs of all partners and customers, including the ability to fund a managed network service from CAPEX and OPEX budgets.

“MSPs and resellers have played a big role in the tremendous growth we have seen to date,” said Gordon Mackintosh, group vice president, global channels and virtual sales at Juniper. “Our new NaaS capabilities promise to accelerate this momentum and increase our campus and branch market share.”

By combining its platform capabilities with the new NaaS capabilities, the Juniper AI-driven Enterprise will bring more flexibility, agility and insight to Juniper partners.
