In this practical book, Juniper Networks consulting senior network engineer, Peter Southwick, offers unique first-person field studies on designing, configuring, and troubleshooting new systems that are changing the networking world. Each chapter-long "travelogue" follows a team of Juniper Networks warriors as they solve specific needs with emerging network platform architectures.
In these case studies, Southwick and his fellow warriors analyze a clients particular situation, arrive at an architectural solution, and work through the deployment details. For anyone who operates, installs, designs, or works in IT, this book provides an intimate and entertaining look at whats changing and why.
Among the case studies, youll discover how:
- A service provider protected customers from malicious traffic with Juniper Networks IDP systems
- SRX5800s improved connectivity and security in a data center
- Ethernet WAN technology was chosen as a storage solution, rather than a proprietary design on dark fiber
- An enterprise severed communications between different departments to comply with government personal credit card standards
- Core network and edge devices helped a power company serve local customers and ISPs in the data services market
- A hosting company migrated its core, datacenter, edge, and access domains to a state-of-the-art network
"In this uniquely written book, you will get a detailed view of life in the data center, the edge, the core, and the office of the customers CIO."
