Juniper Networks Enables the Discovery of New Data Insights in IBM Research Accelerated Discovery Lab

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that IBM Research Accelerated Discovery Lab is using Juniper Networks® QFabric™ System, SRX Series Services Gateways and MX Series routers, to deliver massive scale and high-performance network connectivity. Supporting IBM Research's initiative to accelerate the insight discovery process and research timeline for Big Data analytics projects, Juniper's solutions provide a solid networking foundation that delivers the immense computing capacity and advanced analytics capabilities necessary to tackle some of the most perplexing challenges in the scientific and business worlds.

News Highlights: Massive Scale for Big Data Analytics: IBM Research's Accelerated Discovery Lab, located within the IBM Research-Almaden facility in Silicon Valley, uses a massive scale data and analytics computing platform to collaborate with clients to uncover Big Data insights. With the deterministic low latency of QFabric and its single switch management capability that scales to over 6000 10GbE ports, the Lab can bring together all of the necessary elements -- IBM's Big Data analytics infrastructure, research expertise and a unique user experience -- to address some of today's most pressing world challenges. Especially in the natural resources sector, where most data is unstructured, there has been explosive growth in the need to analyze and transform the data into actionable foresight. For example, Big Data analytics is used to uncover key insights to merge mechanics, field knowledge and diverse data sources to increase operational performance in mine production.Security at Scale: The combination of Juniper's industry-leading SRX Series high-performance security gateways and the QFabric single-layer, flat network system provides a simplified and security-rich data center infrastructure that helps support the Accelerated Discovery Lab's requirements for security, performance and scale. Powerful Processing: In addition, the Accelerated Discovery Lab has implemented Juniper Networks MX Series routers, which are purpose-built to withstand the demands of the most bandwidth-intensive environments. This approach creates a high capacity, high performance access-to-edge data center network enabling end-to-end connectivity for virtualized servers, storage and other critical systems which together deliver extremely fast processing power.Supporting Quotes: "The Accelerated Discovery Lab brings clients and IBM researchers together to quickly transform Big Data into actionable insights when tackling some of world's biggest challenges in the areas of genetic research, public health and energy conservation. It would be difficult to handle the sheer volume of complex data if not for the speed and scalability of Juniper's QFabric solution. This solution, integrated with Juniper's security and routing, enables high-performance access to applications and virtualized workloads, regardless of where the data resides." - Laura Haas, IBM fellow and director, Technology and Operations, Accelerated Discovery Lab, IBM Research "From smart grid development to artificial intelligence and genome sequencing, a high-performance network is critical to accelerating business and scientific discovery. We value our long-standing partnership with IBM and this latest deployment is a great example of how Juniper's innovative technology helps enable Big Data analytics to solve some of the toughest health and scientific challenges of our day." - Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform Systems Division, Juniper Networks About Juniper Networks Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) delivers innovation across routing, switching and security. From the network core down to consumer devices, Juniper Networks' innovations in software, silicon and systems transform the experience and economics of networking.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
