By Peter Fetterolf, PhD, and ACG ResearchDAY ONE GREEN: CLOUD METRO ARCHITECTURECloud Metro networks allow operators to flexibly deploy next-generation metro edge services while reducing network total cost of ownership, energy consumption, and CO2 emissions. AbstractCloud computing, edge computing, and metro networks are converging as network op-erators move to 5G networks and evolve to deliver new services. The emergence of disag-gregation for the 5G vRAN and separation of the 5G core user and control plane to meet more ambitious service requirements are accelerating this trend. An ACG Research re-port published in the first quarter of 2022 defined the characteristics, services, and re-quirements of Cloud Metro networks. Juniper Networks is leading this network transformation with a new generation of routing systems designed for modern Cloud Metro networks. Juniper’s solution is comprehensive with improvements in router archi-tecture, automation, AIOps, service assurance, and security...
