The Juniper Cloud-Native Router
The Juniper Cloud-Native Router maximises container economics and operational efficiencies, empowering service providers with the flexibility to deploy 5G. This high-performing, software-based router combines Juniper's proven Junos OS routing technology, the Junos OS containerised routing protocol daemon (cRPD), and Contrail vRouter DPDK forwarding plane for x86 processors, providing a performant forwarding plane. It seamlessly integrates with the Kubernetes Container Network Interface (CNI) framework and is Kubernetes CNI-compliant.
Designed for cloud-native environments with limited space, power, and cooling, the router complements Juniper's physical routers, offering advanced networking features with a light footprint. It leverages the same Junos OS routing technology, delivering a unified experience across hybrid physical and virtual networks. The Cloud-Native Router plays a pivotal role in the 5G Distributed Radio Access Network (D-RAN) and 5G Core data centres hosted in hyperscaler cloud environments.
