back to article Gin and bear it: Juniper Networks sales down across the board... so, er, 'better than expected'

Juniper Networks CEO Rami Rahim has said the company will be "focused on delivering a return to growth later this year" amid shrinking revenues and weak product demand for its first quarter of fiscal 2019.

    Not quite....

    "Before Mist, Juniper didn't offer its own wireless access points, relying instead on partners like Samsung, Ruckus, Aerohive and Aruba."

    Oh yes they did. They have chewed up at least 2 other Wifi companies (Trapeze and another I cant recall). Decent enough products IIRC, until Juniper got to them...

    I hope they pick up. I like working in JunOS. I haven't had to do much in Cisco or other gear for years. I do wonder if not having updated books for the JNCIA is at least a small barrier to having more people with Juniper certs. People tend to recommend and want to work in OSs they understand.

      Its cloud and telcos that are hurting them.

      Most of the big cloud guys are either developing stuff in-house (AWS/Google), using a competitor (Azure) or using open source (Tencent/Alibaba). For the telco's, equipment rollout has slowed significantly since the boom years driven by Internet and mobile - they're back to upgrading pipes rather than wholesale infrastructure upgrades.

      While Juniper are doing well in enterprise at the moment, it's the market most affected by cloud so commodity is likely to kill them.
