Press Release

Apstra, the pioneer of Intent-Based Networking (IBN) and multinational software company today announced the latest evolution of its flagship product, Apstra AOS, preparing for the rapid growth of the Intent-Based Networking market. AOS 3.3 introduces advanced IBN capabilities to Juniper Networks switching in addition to a wide array of operational and open-networking enhancements that enable enterprises to react more quickly to compressed timelines and unforeseen business shifts while delivering the best end-user experience possible. These significant product enhancements will dramatically increase the speed and reliability of how networks are deployed and operated in the data center.

According to a recent Global Market Insights report, Intent-based Networking market growth exceeded
$900 million in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 30% between 2020 and 2026. The
accelerated adoption of IBN solutions comes at a time when data centers must meet the compressed
timelines of the business while delivering operational simplicity that meets or exceeds the cloud, but
with reliability. Deploying an IBN solution is critical for enterprises doubling down on digital
transformation efforts, which require data center network agility, increased availability, and improved
ROI. Businesses are three times more likely to fail in their digital transformation efforts if they don’t
transform their networks first.

"The monitoring and managing of Data Center operations continue to grow progressively more complexn and increasingly mission-critical as enterprises accelerate their digital transformation," said Mansour Karam, Founder and President of Apstra. "IBN is the solution that many network architects and operators are counting on to help their organizations keep up. As the rise of IBN comes into focus, extending our unique and advanced IBN capabilities to Juniper Networks, paired with the operational enhancements, allows us to deliver our industry-leading solution across a wider variety of hardware choices."

Apstra’s AOS is a critical piece of the puzzle in driving toward closed-loop automation and validation.
The unique technology addresses the sheer network complexity facing architects and operators by
applying day 0 validation and analytics while leveraging a single network source of truth. Apstra
empowers organizations to realize the significant efficiencies and benefits of Day 0 operations resulting from IBN.

"The extreme demands of Switzerland’s renowned financial services industry needs an infrastructure
that guarantees the lowest latency and response times with high-cost efficiency and high levels of
reliability,” explains Hanspeter Tinner, Chief Service Officer and co-founder of Beelastic. “This is only
possible if the latest technologies are used throughout. Apstra’s end-to-end automation and simple
operational model helps us deliver the lowest response times with the highest cost efficiency and
reliability. And with their rapid feature velocity, we are confident they’ll continue delivering on our and
our customers’ requirements in the future.”

operate phases. The leading IBN solution leverages advanced intent-based analytics to continuously
