Juniper Networks has developed its dynamic service architecture that is designed to help with changing business environments.

 

The SRX 5600 and 5800 series run on Juniper's JUNOS software and deliver integrated services and scalable performance that is three times faster than its competitor.

 

The gateways are built upon the industry's first ‘no compromise' dynamic services architecture that delivers an extensible design that can simultaneously scale integrated services and network capabilities on a single architecture.

 

The SRX systems allow businesses to deploy a high-performance network infrastructure that scales in performance, security and services to reduce the escalating demands and risks placed on the network. This allows for a fast and secure access to applications from a single network architecture that runs on a single operating system.

 

A key feature of the SRX is the fastest firewall in the industry with up to 120+Gbps throughput offered as well as Intrusion Prevention Systems, Distributed Denial of Service protection, Network Address Translation and dynamic routing offered.

 

It also addresses the needs of security with open network demands, the company looked at the issue of multiple accessing at certain times and realised that the system needed to be capable of intrusion prevention. This allows for 350,000 connections per second and each deployment of the devices can be tailored to the specific network requirements.

 

Dr Anton Grashion, EMEA Security Strategist claimed that these days service providers need to rapidly introduce servers without compromising security, this new application has hosted outside capably and addressed the problem of wanting one network to do everything.

 

Grashion said: “Some people are doing numerous applications and struggling with complexities are having to make compromises. Too often companies are relying on goodwill when it comes to security, this allows you to enforce rather than rely on guidelines.”

 

David Nouger Bau, head of Carrier Ethernet and Multiplay Marketing EMEA, said: “Service providers need to survey what they need to aid their process, so this is a long term investment. They should ask themselves what they need and what they need it for.”

Abner Germanow, director at Enterprise Networks IDC, said: “Racks of service specific appliances and blades along with a multitude of operating systems and management interfaces create a level of network complexity that introduces latency and inhibits new service deployments. A service architecture that enables businesses to scale in all dimensions dynamically with virtually any service will quickly meet the business requirements and streamline investment decisions.”
