Juniper Networks, today announced that CMC Networks, a global service provider offering market-leading networking solutions is the first Juniper partner to offer a managed AI-driven SD-WAN solution in Africa.
This alliance will offer a superior experience to CMC’s customers, enabling them to easily modify their services, add new locations and spin up and down network speeds.
“SD-WAN is not a new technology and every SD-WAN player gives customers speed and power on the network. However, digital transformation strategies require a high level of intelligence, support and the ability to underpin business-critical applications – attributes that many SD-WAN vendors can’t provide. Juniper’s AI-driven SD-WAN gives CMC a level of intelligence and operational insight that we haven’t seen before,” said Geoff Dornan, Chief Technology Officer, CMC Networks.
“Juniper’s AI-driven SD-WAN solution, powered by our Session Smart Router and Mist AI, enables us to be laser-focused on optimizing user experience. We recognized early that networks must be application-aware to support the demands of the evolving enterprise and to deliver the highest levels of user experience. Juniper ticks all the necessary boxes by delivering on the promise of a truly intelligent network that adapts as user requirements change. Juniper is thrilled that our innovative work with CMC has yielded this much-needed solution to enable consistent and excellent user experiences, even in the most challenging geographies, and we look forward to continued collaboration,” said Sue Graham Johnston, Vice President and General Manager, Juniper Networks.
