SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced the Juniper Networks Design and Architecture Center, an interactive site that provides customers and partners with rich media content to assess, design and implement modern data center network solutions.

  • Juniper leveraged industry expert and community opinions from network engineers and architects to produce integrated assets that address the latest data center network trends and technical priorities for our customers.
  • The site offers prescriptive guidance that is aligned to use cases and relevant network challenges that customers and partners face and bridges the gap between high-end solutions content and more detailed technical documents.
