Juniper Networks is coming off a very strong year for its data center business and said it expects to see artificial intelligence driving more business to Juniper data centers.
Rahim told investors in January that AI is a catalyst that will increase data center traffic and push it toward higher-performance and more cost-effective systems. He said the company is well positioned with products like the MX Series of routers, including the Juniper MX10K, which has the first 400G-capable 9600 line card.
The company said while competition in 400G is stiff, Juniper notched 100-plus 400G wins in the data center in three months. Juniper acquired intent-based networking pioneer Apstra to boost its data center business in 2021. In 2022 it acquired WiteSand, a provider of cloud-native zero trust network access control offering.
