Cyan’s SDN system to support Cisco and Juniper platforms

10 October 2014 |


Cyan has announced that its Blue Planet SDN orchestration system will support a number of Cisco and Juniper routing and switching platforms.

The move is aimed at allowing Blue Planet customers to automate, manage and provision Ethernet services across networks built with the following devices: Cisco ASR 901, ASR 903, ASR 9000 and ME 3600 and Juniper MX960, MX480, and MX2010 platforms.

“Customers are looking for us to integrate and orchestrate Cisco and Juniper based on their perspective that the element management systems and SDN tools available today for these devices are not capable of providing the multi-vendor service automation, management, and abstraction that Blue Planet delivers,” said Michael Hatfield, president, Cyan. “This is required for the network transformation our customers are rapidly embracing."
