Juniper Network Functions Virtualization

 

 

Purpose built on the Juniper Cloud CPE solution, the NFX 250 is a highly scalable solution empowering enterprise customers to deploy multiple secure and high performance virtual network functions (VNFs) on premises. The NFX 250 also serves as a reliable, scalable, and secure network service platform to rapidly deploy a Juniper Cloud-Enabled Branch solution. 

This automated, software-driven solution dynamically provisions new services on demand, resulting in a near instantaneous service delivery experience and enhancement to IP Fabrics service deployments. Subsequent service updates and policy changes can be consistently and dynamically inserted into the existing device, resulting in operational efficiency for service providers and enterprise customers alike by limiting or even eliminating service interruptions and business disruptions. The embedded SD-WAN functionality supports advanced routing features, augmenting enterprise WANs beyond the traditional MPLS. Advanced policy-driven security features by Juniper Networks vSRX virtual firewall hosted on the NFX250 provides optimal routing for applications through the MPLS or broadband connection determined by predefined policies while ensuring secure protection across the entire enterprise network and distributed branches.

 

NFX250 Features and Benefits

Features

Benefits

SD-WAN functionality effectively allocates workloads across the enterprise WAN.

Efficient utilization of links across the enterprise WAN leverage policy-based routing, blending traditional MPLS with other connectivity options such as broadband Internet, 4G, LTE, and more.

The vSRX virtual firewall provides the same security services as physical SRX Series Services Gateways.

vSRX is a comprehensive virtual security and routing appliance that enables the NFX250 to deliver the highest possible performance across branch locations.

Seamless integration with Contrail Service Orchestration ensures automated management and a consistent service life-cycle experience.

Contrail Service Orchestration automates service chaining and delivery on demand to increase revenue-generating service delivery opportunities.

Network Service Activator enables fast device discovery and provisioning.

Automated configuration eliminates complex device setup and delivers a plug-and-play experience.

Local wire-speed performance ensures 1GbE rates.

High performance simplifies network topologies and operations.
