Juniper to make bigger foray into wireless this week

Juniper Networks is expected to announce three products during this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a sign that the networking giant is looking to make bigger inroads into the wireless industry.

Having declared in November that it would be developing its own packet core solution for wireless, Juniper said its big picture focus for wireless is network convergence. Mallik Tatipamula, vice president of service provider marketing at Juniper, said the mobile network will look quite similar to fixed line broadband infrastructure.

Juniper is expected to launch a product called Juniper Traffic Direct, an data offloading product that diverts bulk data traffic to the Internet to help with wireless network congestion. Juniper Media Flow is a type of content delivery network designed to deliver high-quality video, and Juniper Mobile Core Evolution designed to help operators derive new revenue streams on a unified network.
