Like several other vendors in the high-performance IP networking market, Juniper Networks has encountered rougher sledding in recent years, leading to some instability and senior executive churn. In this interview, Juniper CEO Rami Rahim states why he thinks market fundamentals, industry demand, and Juniper’s strategy now have the company back on track.
Rahim indicates that while carrier spending, which is a large part of Juniper’s business, has been cyclically weaker than normal, Juniper has successfully diversified across key verticals to reduce dependence on carrier spending.
Rahim also discusses Juniper’s cloud strategy, and how it dovetails with customer trends and the increased need for security. He indicates as well the company’s determination to remain a pure play indicator in IP technology, particularly around software-driven value creation.
