Building on its software defined networking strategy, networking company Juniper recently partnered with Affirmed Networks, a leader in virtualized mobile networks. Through the deal, the companies plan to develop solutions that can help service providers embrace next -generation NFV (network functions virtualization) based architectures. With the telecom industry invariably moving from hardware to software, the architecture supporting mobile networks is going to be virtualized on a big scale going forward. Considering this, and the fact that Juniper earns almost two-thirds of its revenues from service providers, the partnership seems to have a lot to offer for Juniper.
