Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team announced a new partnership with Juniper Networks, which becomes the team’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.
For Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, the decision to partner with Juniper was straightforward: with increased emphasis on secure networking to underpin any modern business, the organization was keen to work with a supplier that understood the benefits of 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.
Juniper Networks’ branding will first appear on the AMR21, on the car’s Halo, at this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
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.”
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 organizations 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 organization 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 program.”
