Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that global financial services firm UBS has selected the company to build a next generation enterprise data center network infrastructure.

Many financial service institutions face unprecedented pressures ranging from changing economic conditions to increased regulations and rapidly evolving technologies -- all while needing to optimize their cost structure.

UBS plans to implement key components of Juniper Networks® MetaFabric™ architecture, an open standards-based architecture with proven routing, switching, security, management and orchestration solutions, to support the bank's current and future business goals.
