ThousandEyes and Juniper team up on joint solution

Network intelligence company ThousandEyes is partnering with Juniper Networks to provide visibility into network performance and application delivery across hybrid wide area networks (WANs).

Enterprises that largely depend on the web often lack insight into their network performance, despite being pivotal to business success. The purpose of the collaboration between the two companies is to provide customers with a sense of control over their network with a software solution that enables users to monitor network performance. The ThousandEyes solution with Juniper Networks Cloud Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) provides visibility across the corporate WAN and web, which is needed to ensure the performance of critical applications, according to the company.

Specifically, the joint offering is intended to illuminate blind spots, which, if gone unnoticed, can compensate network performance. “As more and more of our customers move to cloud-centric networks to realize its cost and agility promises, the migration – often to a hybrid public/private environment – can also bring new network blind spots that, if left unchecked, can wreak havoc on service delivery, application development, SLAs and the overall end-user experience,” said Mihir Maniar, vice president, product management, Juniper Networks.

“Our customers can benefit from the open architecture of Juniper CPE devices and partner ecosystem to deploy best of breed solutions of choice. The ThousandEyes solution gives customers the end-to-end visibility into their new software-centric network architecture to achieve the benefits of an agile network: new revenue streams, profitability, accelerated innovation and service delivery.”

ThounsandEyes solution illuminates service topology and performance across the enterprise WAN or web by deploying enterprise agents as virtual network functions on Juniper’s Cloud CPE. These agents help monitor WANs and the web, and can be installed on NFX250 Network Services Platform branch routers, in addition to servers supporting Docker, ESXi, Hyper-V, Linux and Windows Server.

ThousandEyes landed a similar partnership Cisco Systems in 2016. As part of the collaboration, ThousandEyes said it would support Cisco Enterprise Routers by extending network visibility and insights with ThousandEyes enterprise agents that use containers to run directly on Cisco equipment at branch offices.
