Juniper Networks unveiled the Junos Network Analytics suite, a family of big data analytics and network intelligence solutions that now includes the BizReflex and NetReflex products, earlier this week.
BizReflex and NetReflex were developed with Guavus, a provider of big data analytics solutions leveraging an architecture that delivers insights from IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network traffic patterns to better understand network behavior. The product is targeted at service providers who need to improve network management.
Guavus founder and CEO Anukook Lakhina said the company's analytics solutions increase the speed at which busines insights based on network-generated data are delivered. “We are pleased to be working with Juniper Networks to deliver a network analytics solution that allows customers to optimize their IP/MPLS assets for more efficient network operations, reduce costs and increase revenue,” he said.
The first two products in the suite combine an analytics engine with visual dashboards that present network insights as customizable graphics, statistics and drill-downs. It includes:
BizReflex: A network analytics engine and dashboard that helps business leaders gather intelligence on how customers, peers and prospects interact with the network.
NetReflex: Provides network architects and operations personnel with detailed traffic trends and analysis for IP and MPLS networks.
Junos Network Analytics extracts network flow data and routing tables from Juniper Networks routing platforms or other third-party vendor routing platforms. The SKUs are available now and subscription-based pricing will be on Juniper's price list in June 2013.
