Packet Design has integrated its Route Explorer route analytics solution with the Juniper Networks® Junosphere™ Lab cloud-based service, giving Juniper customers a way to visualize and analyze complex Layer 3 routed networks created in the Junosphere virtual environment.
Route Explorer provides real-time, network-wide Layer 3 visibility across an enterprise or service provider's IP/MPLS/VPN network, delivering an intuitive graphical view of control plane operation, including IP forwarding paths, RSVP-TE tunnels and Layer 3 VPN services. Integration with Junosphere will allow users to see a real-time topology map of their virtual network, monitor routing changes, perform in-depth analyses, including the ability to rewind network event history, and graphically depict what-if scenarios for failure analysis or to understand the impact of changes before they are deployed. Route Explorer functionality is provided free of charge to Junosphere Lab users.
Judy Beningson, vice president and general manager, Virtual Junos Business Unit at Juniper Networks , said, “We are excited to expand our partnership with Packet Design, and to bring Route Explorer’s powerful network visualization and analysis capabilities to Junosphere Lab users. Route Explorer will give users of our ground-breaking cloud-based service additional flexibility, allowing our customers to easily visualize and analyze complex networks.”
Jeff Raice, Packet Design's executive vice president of marketing and business development, said, "We are delighted to offer Route Explorer's powerful visualization, analysis and modeling capabilities, which will further enhance the ease, flexibility and cost-effectiveness delivered by Junosphere Lab. Junosphere users will be able to access the rich feature set that is utilized by nearly 500 Route Explorer customers across the globe, including many of the world's largest service providers, enterprises and government agencies. The integration of our technology with Junosphere is yet another validation of the value provided by our route analytics solutions. Packet Design is excited about the opportunity to promote our solutions to Juniper's world-wide customer base by making them available to Junosphere customers."
