Juniper Networks has certainly seen its ups and downs over the past few years. The company is trying to move into new areas while its historical base of strength, routers, is under attack from not only arch-rival Cisco but also a number of other vendors trying to crack the router code, such as Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei. While the potential for share loss is always there, routing has always been something that Juniper has excelled at and, despite a more competitive landscape, I think Juniper will maintain its current market position.

A good indicator of this is the recent announcement from Verizon that it was selecting Juniper’s PTX Series router for its converged MPLS core. PTX will enable Juniper to converge all four of its IP networks onto a single MPLS network, saving Verizon millions in the long run. Without PTX, Verizon would have been faced with the daunting task of upgrading each of those networks separately. With more video, mobile and could computing traffic coming, and coming fast, having a single, converged network provides many advantages over trying to run multiple independent ones.
