The Aston Martin Team will start a new partnership with Juniper Networks which will become the the Silverstone-based outfit’s Official Networking Equipment Vendor.
Juniper Networks, a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, delivers simplified yet disruptive networking innovation to tens of thousands of mission-critical enterprises, cloud operators and telecom providers around the world. As part of the partnership, Juniper will supply an agile and highly automated network platform across the team’s new technology campus, due for completion in early 2023.
The team hopes that the partnership will lead to an improved form of secure networking with the Californian-based multinatonal corporation expected to supply secure, cloud-based wired and wireless networking solutions that can withstand the sophisticated, data-intensive requirements of a Formula One team operating across multiple continents.
Jefferson Slack, Managing Director – Commercial & Marketing, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team, said: "We’re delighted to be able to announce this new partnership with Juniper Networks. A Formula One team’s secure networking needs are extensive: we need the ultimate in performance, flexibility and intelligence – all delivered with zero compromise.
"And that’s as applicable to our trackside operations, which demand immediate, fault-intolerant response, as it is to our factory networking requirements, which need to be robust yet fully scalable. Juniper’s adaptive and automated solutions are the perfect fit for our new smart factory build."
Commenting on the new cooperation, Mike Marcellin, SVP & Chief Marketing Officer, Juniper Networks, said: "We’re thrilled to be joining this partnership with the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team. The values that power our two organisations are truly aligned and I’m excited about the possibilities that lie ahead—for example, working together on a range of sustainability projects that are equally relevant in their world and ours.
"Like virtually every organisation today, the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team is reliant on its network and therefore expects a consistently superior user experience for every employee, including engineers, drivers, technicians, race strategists and administrators. Juniper looks forward to delivering an industry-leading networking portfolio to the team as it continues its ambitious expansion and development programme," Marcellin concluded.
