Juniper offers high-performance network infrastructure powered by JUNOS (TM) software, one network operating system that integrates routing, switching, security and network services. FreeBSD serves as the basis of JUNOS software, providing many of the essential operating system services of the UNIX-based system. Today, JUNOS software runs on a broad portfolio of Juniper products designed for the diverse and demanding needs of converged networks, from small offices to the largest TeraPop sites in the world.

Juniper benefits from the powerful collaboration between leading universities, individuals, and commercial organizations developing FreeBSD to advance the operating system functionality. The FreeBSD release system provides Juniper with a roadmap for features and a stable base for our code, while its practical licensing enables Juniper to develop intellectual property for advancing high-performance networking. Juniper employs many active FreeBSD developers that continually contribute to the FreeBSD project to further its development as a leading operating system.
