Who is this for?
0:04 Hi, I'm Bill Carbeau, Senior Key account manager with Juniper Networks.
0:07 Hello, my name is Tim Lieto, I'm a sales director here at Juniper Networks and we're here to
0:12 talk to you about some of the key customer wins we had at 128 Technology, now a part
0:16 of Juniper Networks.
0:17 Bill, what are some of the key wins that you experienced in your time here?
0:21 So, Tim you know the thing I like to do most is beat Cisco.
0:24 So, one of my first customers that I've worked with here, a financial services company based
0:30 in the Northeast U.S. with over 150 locations, they've been working with Cisco for a very
0:35 long time, and they got what we like to call Cisco Fatigue
0:39 Cisco wasn't servicing the account very well.
0:41 They weren't bringing them a lot of innovation.
0:43 They met up with us.
0:44 They saw a great new product, a great new solution.
0:47 They saw a road map to the future.
0:50 One of their big challenges was really integrating other companies as they acquired, and so in
0:55 terms of from a networking perspective, how they could integrate those companies faster.
0:58 More seamlessly was one of the things that they look to our solution for.
1:03 As well, just you know, a great road map towards the future.
1:05 You got anything that can beat that.
1:07 Well, you mentioned 150 locations, but I got one that can beat it.
1:11 How about a 500 location customer that was focused on delivering WAN transformation across
1:16 some of the most challenging connectivity environments across the globe?
1:20 And for them it was about delivering securely and reliably their applications across things
1:24 like SATCOM, LTE, microwave, all sorts of different transports.
1:28 And additionally, they are focused around the software element of our solution and how
1:32 they could package it and deploy the Session Smart Router in a various amount of form factors,
1:37 whether it be a bare metal appliance, as a container, as a virtual machine in hyper converged
1:44 So, they took our solution.
1:45 Also beat Cisco.
1:47 And deployed in a bunch of different ways.
1:50 You know, the only thing I like more than beating Cisco is beating my colleagues.
1:54 So yeah, actually, I've got a customer that was ten times the size of your customer, so
1:58 5000 locations.
2:00 A national retailer in the automotive space that again was looking for an SD-WAN solution
2:06 so they could save money on connectivity they had dual MPLS providers.
2:09 They were looking to move towards a single MPLS with broadband as another solution.
2:14 With the same type of reliability, they got from the dual MPLS solution, but at a lower
2:18 cost, and we were able to help them save $30 million over the life of the contract.
2:22 Their other major challenge was that a lot of their business was still over the phone,
2:26 and they wanted to make sure that when they call into one of their stores
2:29 that their calls would stay up, and the uniqueness of the Juniper SD-WAN solution is its session
2:34 stateful and so when we failover between links all calls stay up and that was critical to
2:40 the success.
2:41 They estimated that at $100 per phone call, if that call was dropped, and so again over
2:47 the life of the contract they estimated that it's $6 million worth of ROI to them.
2:51 So yeah, so I think I got you beat.
2:53 Do you have anything better than that?
2:55 Wow, I might actually.
2:56 I have a customer that is deploying 10,000 Session Smart Routers across their WAN infrastructure
3:02 and for them it was all about scalability and reducing costs while pushing out new and
3:08 innovative digital services out to their branch locations.
3:12 And so, for them it was over, you know 50 to 100 stores a day.
3:15 It was about reducing the cost of their infrastructure by 10s of millions of dollars and taking out
3:21 a network congestion away from their network by the order of magnitude of five terabytes.
3:26 What do you think about that?
3:29 I think I will go back to work, Tim.
