0:04 at juniper networks we're reimagining

0:07 your metro network by enabling

0:08 sustainable business growth through our

0:10 innovative cloud metro solution powered

0:13 by cloud delivered automation as a

0:15 service with integrated artificial

0:17 intelligence

0:18 metro traffic is projected to grow by an

0:20 astounding 500 percent per year through

0:23 2027 and at the same time become the

0:26 springboard for distributed service

0:28 delivery to customers

0:29 this dramatic change forces new capacity

0:32 needs new traffic patterns and new

0:34 network architectures all of which

0:36 require a new sustainable approach for

0:38 the future that's the cloud metro where

0:41 connectivity cloud and customer

0:43 experiences converge

0:45 traditional retro metro platforms are

0:47 already under significant strain with

0:49 demands that digital transformation and

0:51 new services like 5g brings

0:54 architected for the needs of the past

0:56 they just can't keep up with network and

0:58 service demands for the future

1:00 but delivering a consistent high quality

1:02 of experience both for customers and

1:04 operators alike matter in this new world

1:06 of the cloud metro and that's why we're

1:08 enabling sustainable operations with the

1:11 industry's first cloud delivered

1:13 automation as a service for the cloud

1:14 metro with paragon reducing time to

1:17 service introduction from months to

1:19 minutes with dramatic improvements in

1:21 productivity and speed

1:22 our powerful device onboarding use case

1:24 is just one example you see for how

1:26 we're automating network turn up to make

1:28 it instantaneous secured and error free

1:32 an integrated ai promises to make life

1:34 easier for operators with reduced

1:36 trouble tickets faster time to incident

1:38 resolution and new insights to optimize

1:40 networks further we're delivering

1:43 unprecedented breakthroughs in truly

1:45 sustainable systems with our new acx

1:47 7000 family of cloud metro routers

1:50 delivering the industry's highest 400

1:52 gig port density per slot up to a breath

1:55 taking 54 ports or 21.6 terabits per

1:58 line card while reducing carbon

2:00 footprint and e-waste at the same time

2:02 with up to 77

2:04 reduction in power consumption

2:06 and our sustainable ip services fabric

2:08 provides future-proof performance with

2:10 the highest scalability from one gig all

2:13 the way up to 345 terabit per second the

2:15 fabric also now includes both embedded

2:17 active assurance and integrated zero

2:20 truss security which now represents the

2:22 new baseline for the next generation

2:24 networking infrastructure for the cloud

2:25 metro if it's not assured and secured it

2:28 belongs to the past with the rest of the

2:30 retro metro solutions

2:32 each new juniper acx 7000 platform

2:35 features a unique cryptographically

2:37 signed device identity stored in tpm 2.0

2:40 silicon to ensure that every system in a

2:42 cloud metro network is secured

2:44 and we'll monitor all of these systems

2:46 from the cloud in real time with our

2:48 paragon automation as a service giving

2:51 you a network-wide security trust door

2:53 to provide peace of mind about security

2:55 posture of the entire network

2:57 infrastructure

2:59 additionally paragon active assurance

3:01 test agents are now embedded directly in

3:03 every acx 7000 platform turning the

3:06 cloud metro network into a sensor that

3:09 proactively measures and assures user

3:11 experience at the service layer at real

3:13 time

3:14 we've augmented this with new

3:16 functionality to assure service quality

3:18 for 5g mobility networks with the

3:20 ability to generate 3gpp compliant

3:22 traffic on the data plane for end-to-end

3:24 service assurance from 5g endpoints in

3:27 the ram all the way through to the 5g

3:29 packet core

3:30 juniper is uniquely able to deliver a

3:32 complete sustainable solution for the

3:35 new cloud metro i am thrilled to be

3:37 announcing all of these innovations and

3:39 i'm really excited to work with our

3:40 customers to help them realize the

3:42 benefits that they make possible

3:46 what it takes
