Juniper Networks' New Developer Applications and Tools

Juniper Networks has announced the availability of the Junos Space Software Development Kit (SDK) and new application development partners for the Junos and Junos Space SDKs. Focused on building network applications using a RESTful web services-based Application Programming Interface (API), Junos Space SDK's tools are positioned as both an open and stable development and runtime platform with good security provisioning.

"The Junos Space SDK unlocks network resources for developers and makes it simple to build, test, and deploy network applications. Developers are free to innovate using our embedded network intelligence to enhance customer value through differentiated applications," said Mike Harding, vice president and general manager, Junos Space Software at Juniper Networks. "With the Junos SDK and now the Junos Space SDK, we are making development of network-enabled applications accessible to more developers and supporting the growth of an ecosystem that delivers valuable application experiences."

Juniper first opened the Junos OS in 2007, delivering the Junos SDK that is now used by third parties around the world to optimize and integrate their networks. Juniper's cross-network Junos operating system (OS) is said to deliver a reliable, high-performance platform for routing, switching and security — with programming interfaces and an SDK to help developers discover more value in their network.

"The Junos Space SDK provides developers with access to the critical features of the network, and this in turn creates a value-driven linkage between connection, transport, features, and management," said Tom Nolle, president and founder, CIMI Corporation. "Every network owner, whether enterprise or service provider, needs to link the network directly with its business case, to optimize ROI and contain operations costs. Juniper's leadership in service automation and intelligence, and its momentum in providing tools and capabilities to enhance the marriage of the network and service layers, is impressive."
