Juniper Networks Delivers EVPN-VXLAN Fabric to Connect Enterprise Data Center and Campus Networks

Grazed from Juniper Networks

Juniper Networks, an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced the expansion of its campus portfolio, including extending EVPN-VXLAN fabric to the campus, enabling a common architecture for campus and data center fabrics by unifying disparate architectures. Through this unification, Juniper Networks is providing the building blocks for an enterprise-wide fabric, a key component in building a simple, secure and automated multicloud. Juniper also announced enhancements to its branch portfolio with new capabilities in its Contrail SD-WAN solution, utilizing NFX SeriesSRX Series and vSRX Series WAN Edge devices combined with Contrail Service Orchestration. 

Most enterprises have separate campus and data center networks, leveraging entirely different architectures to provide connectivity across the two domains. This leads to divergent operations, which inhibits enterprises' attempts to unify their infrastructure under a common operational umbrella. With Juniper's new EVPN-VXLAN campus architecture, enterprises can build campus networks using the same protocols that are popular in the most stable and efficient data centers that exist today.
