From a new AI’s acquisition to 5G research, an update on Juniper Networks

Many organisations are now struggling to survive, revive and thrive their businesses, while facing Covid-19 crisis, but this doesn’t seem to be the case of Juniper! The American company recently announced a new acquisition in the Artificial Intelligence sector, and it is releasing new researches about 5G to Generate 44% of Global Operator Revenue by 2025.

Since the purchase of Mist in 2019, Juniper has been adding AI networking tools for its portfolio and analytics and next step seems to be the acquisition of 128 Technology. Juniper Networks said it will acquire 128 Technology for $450 million in a move that will give it more artificial intelligence-based features through its networking portfolio. According to Juniper, the plan is to combine 128 Technology's Session Smart networking with its campus and branch portfolio and its Mist AI platform. The two companies will aim to use AI to optimise the network and user experiences for voice, 5G and collaboration.

As just mentioned, Juniper is trying to improve its performances around 5G, but why? A new Juniper Research study has found that operator‑billed revenue from 5G connections will reach $357 billion by 2025; rising from $5 billion in 2020, its first full year of commercial service. By 2025, 5G revenue is anticipated to represent 44% of global operator‑billed revenue owing to rapid migration of 4G mobile subscribers to 5G networks and new business use cases enabled by 5G technology. The study found that 5G uptake had surpassed initial expectations; predicting total 5G connections will surpass 1.5 billion by 2025. It also forecast that the average 5G connection will generate 250% more revenue than an average cellular connection by 2025.
