“Today, there is a huge amount of data travelling through our networks and there is a question of how do we make use of all this data? That is where Artificial Intelligence (AI) comes into play in a big way,” stated , Head of Enterprise and CTO, India and SAARC of Juniper Networks.

Paul continued, “We, at Juniper, have successfully deployed AI to work for networking. We have introduced a number of Network Bots that leverage AI. For instance, one such bot is named HealthBot. HealthBot is strategically placed in the network and it’ll keep monitoring all the information which is coming in and out from the network such as congestion, packet drops, behavioural patterns, malware attacks, unusual traffic pattern etc”.

“All sorts of sensor data, called network vitals, are picked up. The AI engine sitting on top of that will guide the HealthBot to respond accordingly. As an example, if there is a malware attack, the AI will immediately identify that it’s a malware attack and take necessary steps to rectify the situation. Similarly, another one we’ve released is Peering Bot. If there is an unusual congestion in peering points the Bots with AI can understand that there is congestion in certain areas and start distributing traffic accordingly.”
