SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 21, 2011 - Juniper Networks (NYSE:
JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today
published its Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability
Report, highlighting the benefits of the new network and
the company's initiatives around green IT, employee
development, community engagement, and sustainable best
practices for its extended operations. The report charts
Juniper's progress in 2010 around its citizenship and
Home Worker Program - The program employs Juniper
technology to reduce commute congestion and pollution and
to keep users connected, productive and safe when
weather, illness or other personal commitments make it
difficult to travel to work.
"Not for Sale" - Juniper pledged a multi-year
commitment to a non-profit that is striving to re-abolish
modern day slavery. "Not for Sale" is using the
network to connect people and resources to raise
awareness [slaverymap.org] of the crimes that may be in
our own communities.
Advanced Security Technologies - The new security
functionality for mobile devices, including smart phones
and iPads, and data centers protects the network and the
integrity of the information it carries.
Internet2 - Juniper donated $2.5 million to support the
development of the new, nationwide 100 Gigabit-per-second
(Gbps) network that will enable advanced networking
features for more than 200,000 public institutions.
A New Chipset - The Junos® Trio chipset requires less
cooling and drives down energy consumption per unit of
bandwidth, while increasing capacity and throughput.
The Next-Generation Core Router - The Juniper Networks®
T4000 Core Router consumes just 2.7 watts of power per
Gigabit of processed traffic.
A New "3-2-1" Architecture - Juniper's
approach to data center networks reduces the amount of
equipment deployed in the data center, from three layers
to two and ultimately to one, reducing waste, energy
consumption, operational costs and complexity.
Reduced Lifecycle Impacts - Juniper is using bamboo in
its packaging, which is 100 percent recyclable and more
environmentally friendly than paper pulp, and shifted
from a just-in-time supply strategy to a more distributed
model, which reduced shipping costs (up to seven times
the savings) and overall transport emissions.
Ongoing R&D Commitment - Juniper Networks invested 22
percent of its annual revenue in research and development
to continue the advancement of the performance,
capabilities and efficiencies of the new network.
Carbon Intensity - Juniper set and met a target to reduce
its carbon footprint by five percent for each employee.
The company continues to report its emissions via the Carbon Disclosure
Efficient Lab Design and Layout - Juniper's
innovative approach to its labs reduced energy
consumption, garnering the company a savings of $200,000
a year for each 200 rack lab.
"Because Juniper's solutions underpin the
world's communications infrastructure, we take our
responsibility seriously around ensuring that we are doing
all we can to reduce risks, increase efficiencies, and
lower the total cost of ownership so that people around the
globe have access and can truly benefit from the network.
We value total network efficiency, which means looking at
its entire lifecycle and finding ways to reduce impacts and
mitigate the resource and carbon constraints affecting us
- Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general
manager, Services, Support and Supply Chain Operations,
"Juniper is committed to understanding and reducing
the impacts of all its operations to make sure that every
community in which we have a presence is better off because
Juniper is there. We have a history of tackling and finding
answers to seemingly insurmountable problems, and we are
committed to innovating and being part of the solution to
some of the toughest issues facing our world
- Brad Minnis, senior director of Environmental,
Health, Safety and Security, Juniper Networks
