Juniper's Paragon Automation improves service experience across networks

Organizations can deploy the enterprise automation software on-premises or in the cloud

Juniper Networks has unveiled Paragon Automation, its new cloud-native software suite for enterprise automation and resiliency testing.

Also primed for vendor-agnostic monitoring of network services, Juniper has announced Paragon Automation as the new brand name for its WAN automation solutions portfolio. 

The new application suite will also combine tools and assurance testing software from Netrounds, a cloud-based predictive network analytics platform Juniper acquired in September 2020. 

“Juniper’s automation software and tools brought in-house through the Netrounds acquisition have been rewritten to be microservice-based and cloud-delivered and hosted, said Brendan Gibbs, VP of automated WAN solutions at Juniper.

“Everything is Kubernetes based. We want to align to a standard hosting architecture for clouds, whether it be hosting in a public cloud or customers hosting this in their own private cloud on-premise with their own Kubernetes-based architecture.” 

For 5G network operators and enterprises running their applications on multi-cloud environments, Paragon Automation replaces manual troubleshooting tasks with automated network and service provisioning, managing, and monitoring.

The Paragon Planner network planning and simulation tool, offered under the Paragon Automation software suite, provides full-scale network views, health audits, and scenario planning without disrupting an enterprise’s live network. 

Paragon Insights, a data collection and analytics solution, offers actionable operational intelligence across network deployments. 

Finally, Junos Telemetry streams real-time performance data from network devices to enhance performance analysis and service assurance.

“We’re on a mission to drive experience first networking, something Juniper considers necessary for service providers and all WAN routed networks, including planning and design, configuration, service assurance and provisioning, and analytics for multi-vendor architecture in a visual workflow, Gibbs added.
