The Big PictureIn an industry first, Lockheed Martin and Juniper Networks successfully demonstrated mission-aware routing technology that will streamline and prioritize the flow of critical information from contested, remote environments to commanders stationed around the globe by connecting Lockheed Martin and Juniper products to create a hybrid software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) solution. In addition to mission-aware routing technology, Lockheed Martin and Juniper are actively collaborating to enhance RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) functionality. Lockheed Martin and Juniper Networks established a collaboration memorandum of understanding in 2022 to develop integrated hybrid SD-WAN solutions, enhanced RIC solutions, and customer demonstration objectives. Future demonstrations between Lockheed Martin and Juniper are expected to expand hybrid SD-WAN experimentation from the lab to field exercises with additional network nodes.
