Juniper Enhances SD-WAN Offering with LAN Functionality

DAVID RAMEL | December 5, 2019

Juniper Networks, a leading vendor in the software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) space, has enhanced its offering, with LAN support and new equipment leading the way.

Thus it has boosted its array of performance options for connecting campus, branch and public cloud WAN networks, primarily by unifying its SD-Branch offering. Today, the Juniper cloud offering has been expanded to also include SD-LAN operations," the company announced in a Dec. 3 statement. "From one portal, customers can now easily provision Juniper EX Series switches to manage LAN fabrics and configure LAN virtualization and security policies in the same way they operate their SD-WAN environments.
