Technology Book Provides Unique Outlook on Global Network as the Key Technology for Sustainability of our Planet
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Juniper Networks® (NYSE: JNPR) and O’Reilly Media today announced one of the more unique technology books to be published this calendar year, The Sustainable Network: The Accidental Answer for a Troubled Planet. As a special project of Juniper’s corporate green initiatives, The Sustainable Network reveals how a global communications network can help solve the complex environmental, economic, social and political challenges facing our planet today.
The Sustainable Network demonstrates why the global network is the best sustainable technology available to help us tackle a wide range of problems and that its future depends on the continued penetration of broadband, as well as industry innovation at all layers of the OSI Model. The thought-provoking and fact-filled book is a call to action, urging individuals, governments, markets and organizations to put the power of this network to good use.
The Sustainable Network features the products and services of the entire information and communications technology industry, from routers to mobile phones, from computers to data centers. It neither advocates one networking industry vendor over another, nor recommends one networking implementation over another. Instead, through concise and easy-to-understand examples, it provides a 10,000-foot view of how the network has advanced over the past decade to become an agent for sustainability.
The Sustainable Network was a special project undertaken by a dedicated team at Juniper, as well as many advisors and network engineers from both Juniper and other companies said R.K. Anand, executive vice president, Foundation Technologies at Juniper Networks. The result is a book that is completely unique and aligned to the needs of this modern world. This is a book for anyone who uses a laptop, or has a Facebook page or uses their iPhone to stay connected. Regardless of where you are, the global network connects us all and The Sustainable Network is a wake-up call for what we could do with that amazing connection
