Products

Juniper's products include T-series, M-series, E-series, and J-series families of routers, and the SDX Service Deployment System. A router is a computer networking device that forwards data packets across an internetwork toward their destinations, through a process known as routing. ...

  • T-series routers are large core routers.
  • M-series routers are multiservice edge routers.
  • E-series routers are broadband edge routers.
  • J-Series routers are small customer premises routers.
  • NetScreen hardware firewalls.
  • Secure Access SSL VPN gateways.
  • IDP Intrusion detection and prevention appliances.
  • VF-series Session Border Controllers.

The E series routers run the JUNOSe operating system. The E series was developed by Unisphere, which Juniper acquired in 2002 from Siemens. This article describes the computer networking device. ... Broadband in general electronics and telecommunications is a term which refers to a signal or circuit which includes or handles a relatively wide range of frequencies. ...

An operating system (OS) is an essential software program that manages the hardware and software resources of a computer. ...


The M, T, and J series routers are based on a common software architecture and the Juniper operating system JUNOS.


While the E, M, and T series are all high speed ASIC based devices capable of terminating multiple broadband optical connections, the J series is much lower in speed. Capable of terminating DS3 (45 Mbit/s) and slower lines, this product line is aimed at corporate branch offices and service provider premise equipment.


NetScreen firewalls provide wire speed firewall and VPN encryption service. A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a private communications network usually used within a company, or by several different companies or organizations, communicating over a public network. ...


Secure Access products provide SSL based VPN services to remote users without specialized clients. This product was originally designed by Neoteris. Netscreen acquired Neoteris prior to Juniper's acquisition of Netscreen. ...


IDP products provide detection and interception of malicious network traffic via stateful analysis.


VF-series session border controllers provide scalability and security processing for VoIP traffic.
