JUNOS Software: Network Operating System
The power of one:
Watch as customers describe the performance and economic impact of JUNOS® software.
JUNOS® software is Juniper's single network operating system spanning routing, switching and security platforms. Delivering the power of one operating system, JUNOS software simplifies network operations and drives operational excellence to reduce the cost of innovation.
Unlike other network operating systems, JUNOS software offers one operating system, enhanced through one release train, and developed based on one modular architecture—the power of one differences. These differences allow us to provide carrier-class continuous systems availability, automated network operations, and the open innovation to quickly respond to rapid growth and change, while reducing complexity, cost, and risk.
Deploying platforms that run JUNOS software creates an open network infrastructure that interoperates and integrates with existing solutions and systems. And now the Partner Solution Development Platform (PSDP) opens development of new features and applications of JUNOS software to customers and partners.
JUNOS software runs on a broad portfolio of products for converged network deployments. Accelerated by the power of one differences, JUNOS software has rapidly evolved to support a diverse set of application and service needs. Juniper platforms simultaneously scale integrated security and networking capabilities without compromising performance or reliability.
By improving operational productivity and processes, JUNOS software helps customers accelerate advanced service and application deployments. For example, a survey of more than 120 network operators found that these JUNOS software customers spend an average of 25 percent less time on common network operational tasks compared to those using competitive systems.

Why Is JUNOS Software Different?
Learn how Juniper Networks disciplined development process creates JUNOS software, a fundamentally different network operating system.
Learn about recent developments in JUNOS software that enhance delivery of continuous systems, including in-service software upgrades (unified ISSU), JUNOScript automation, and Advanced Insight Solutions (AIS).
Operational Simplicity-With JUNOS Software It Doesn't Have to Be Complex
JUNOS software is designed to help you in easing the time, effort and complexity of running the network-automating many of the tasks associated with managing and supporting the network as well as offering open interfaces for flexible interoperability and integration to other systems.
Continuous Systems for Delivery of High Network Uptime
A continuous systems approach means that the Juniper engineers explore the different causes of service degradation and outages-whether resulting from planned maintenance, unexpected failures, or human factors-and find ways to avert and mitigate them for delivery of high uptime.
Going Beyond High Availability to Develop Continuous Systems
Examine two continuous system mechanisms of Juniper: nonstop active routing (NSR) and unified in-service software upgrade (unified ISSU) which enable operators to upgrade the entire operating system without interrupting routing.
