Juniper eyes wireless network upgrades

Network gear maker to launch three new products in a bid for a bigger slice of the 3G, 4G, and LTE upgrade pie.

Juniper Networks on Monday will launch three products for mobile network providers to get a bigger slice of the 3G, 4G, and LTE upgrade revenue pie.

The big picture: Juniper, which primarily competes with Alcatel-Lucent and Cisco Systems for wireless business, sees networks converging. According to Mallik Tatipamula, vice president of service provider marketing at Juniper, the mobile network will look a lot like the fixed line broadband infrastructure.

These so-called converged networks are growing in clout overseas and are likely to catch on in the U.S. in a few years.
