Juniper Networks automates its ‘Optical’ Vision acquires BTI Systems

Juniper Networks automates the Next

All the year starting gossips of Juniper Networks acquisition deal with BTI Systems ceases, as the California based networking major announces the successful acquisition of BTI Systems, a provider of cloud and metro network infrastructure solutions to content, cloud and service providers globally.

Jonathan Davidson, executive vice president and general manager, Juniper Development and Innovation (JDI) writes in a release:

I’m pleased to share with you that Juniper Networks has completed the acquisition of BTI Systems, a leading provider of cloud and metro network infrastructure solutions to content, cloud and service providers globally.

The acquisition marks an exciting time for our companies, our customers and our partners. By combining two industry innovators, Juniper believes it can now offer a comprehensive, robust solution under a unified management architecture to address the fast growing data center interconnect and metro packet optical transport markets.

The close of this acquisition will pave the way for Juniper to help drive the industry toward a more open, automated and highly efficient IP and optical transport network. As the portfolios of both companies become tightly integrated, we believe our customers can expect:

  • A more compelling economic model for Data Center Interconnection and Metro Networks through tightly integrated, single-layer packet-optical networking.
  • Broader network automation, with the ultimate business outcome of reduced operational expense, through integrated software defined networking and management systems.
  • Rapid service creation enabled by the network integration and automation ensuring that the network dynamically adjusts to the needs of the business vs the business adjusting to the needs of the network.
  • An open framework giving customers the ability to choose where and how they take advantage of these capabilities.

In terms of a roadmap, BTI Systems’ portfolio complements Juniper’s IP and Ethernet product portfolio with a richer set of optical capabilities, optical network management and automation software, he continues.

Juniper plans to leverage these capabilities, as well as the complementary talent and expertise that the BTI Systems’ team brings, to further integrate optical capabilities in our switching and routing portfolio. Additionally, we plan to build evolved open optical line system to continue to drive cost-efficient networks as well as evolve operation and control with open, standard and programmatic interfaces across all the layers of network, concludes Jonathan.

Albeit, reports asserts that the agreement will throw Juniper’s a sheer vie to heavyweight like Cisco (collaborating with Ericsson since November 2015), Nokia (now digesting its Alcatel-Lucent acquisition), and Huawei.
