Anuta Networks and Juniper Networks partner to deliver advanced network automation
Jun 24, 2020
MILPITAS, CA — Anuta Networks, the undisputed leader in network automation given its web-scale architecture and widest multi-vendor device support, today announced a partnership with Juniper Networks. The Anuta ATOM platform will be integrated into Juniper’s existing network automation portfolio, including Junos Telemetry, Juniper HealthBot and Juniper NorthStar products. The resulting solutions will empower networking teams to rapidly design and provision network services, gain visibility into applications and services flowing through the network and ensure SLA compliance, as well as service assurance for multi-vendor infrastructure. The ATOM platform will be made available through Juniper.
With the onset of the 5G and cloud era, many network operators are already transforming their networks, but this can mean a huge increase in scale and complexity. To meet growing customer expectations, operators will need to accommodate many more endpoints, network nodes, services and applications that require real-time performance. Additionally, this growth will introduce greater potential for incidents, especially in operational environments that are process heavy and rely on manual intervention to troubleshoot and change network or service configurations. To handle this, automation will be essential for operators to deliver the right service experience to network users.
The interworking of Anuta ATOM with Juniper Networks Junos Telemetry, HealthBot and NorthStar solutions enables network operators to deploy a cross-domain automation portfolio that increases operational efficiency, improves network reliability, simplifies processes, reduces the potential for error and improves service assurance for customers.
As network operators look to overcome the challenge of growing complexity, the addition of Anuta ATOM to the Juniper Networks automation portfolio will provide the following added capabilities and benefits:
- Stateful service provisioning, enhancing Juniper’s focus on service assurance
- Device lifecycle management, including configuration compliance
- Stateless workflow-driven management and orchestration, powered by Anuta low-code technology
“Traditionally, deploying network automation could be challenging due to siloed applications, heavy customization and monolithic products. However, Anuta’s integrative approach with a standards-based, microservices architecture has changed everything”, said Chandu Guntakala, Co-Founder & CEO of Anuta Networks. “Anuta ATOM accelerates stateful service orchestration, collects streaming telemetry and delivers closed-loop remediation. It has eliminated manual processes and accelerated digital transformation initiatives for global enterprises and service providers. We are thrilled to partner with Juniper Networks to extend the access of our platform to a wider customer set.”
“Global operators are deploying automation to maximize the efficiency of their network infrastructure and improve customer experience, yet complexity remains a critical challenge. Automation solutions need to simplify network operations, not introduce greater complexity,” said Brendan Gibbs, VP Product Line Management, Automated WAN Solutions at Juniper Networks. “We are excited about our partnership with Anuta because ATOM delivers a powerful closed-loop automation solution – a perfect complement to Juniper’s NorthStar and HealthBot automation solutions. Together, we provide network operators with increased service assurance, operational efficiency and peace of mind.”
I am excited about the Anuta Networks partnership with Juniper Networks, as it will enable our ability to deploy hardware, software and automation tools together while providing uniform support and customization.
