PANAJI: Juniper Networks Inc is bullish on India with its range of products and sees scope in growing the managed services and broadband market in the region. The company, which has just about completed 10 years of its existence, has become a $2 billion technology products company. This was fuelled by 10 acquisitions, of them five in 2005. Announcing this, the companys Country Manager, India and SAARC, Giridhar Java said, Asia-Pacific accounted for about 22 percent of Juniper's revenues and India had emerged as a rapidly growing market. The focus this year would be on managed services and carrier resale while leveraging the IPv6 capabilities, the last bringing in convergence. The growth was well complemented by its indirect sale model through a partnership network, which had grown from barely 25 to 100 by the end of 2005, he added. At present the companys research and development arm had about 350 people accounting for a tenth of the overall manpower. The nature and scope of the work had broadened following the acquisition of five companies - Kagoor, Redine, Peribit, Acorn Packet and Funk Software - the last in December 2005. Giving a peep into the shape of things to come, the Chief Technologist at Juniper Networks, Sampath `Sam' Srinivas said that next generation enterprises would become truly intelligent, providing a framework for better management from one point covering all aspects including security, which has taken a center stage. The company has also bagged an order from Sri Lanka Telecom that introduced virtual private network on Juniper platforms and Persistent Systems, securing its network with Juniper products.
