Frasers Property Australia Picks Juniper to Simplify Connectivity

Network Infrastructure

Juniper Networks, an enabler in secure, AI-driven networks, has announced that Frasers Property Australia and Frasers Property Industrial in Australia, one of Australia’s leading diversified property groups and an Australian divisions of the multi-national Frasers Property Limited, has selected Juniper Networks to upgrade its network infrastructure, enhancing business agility and IT efficiency across Australia.

With a modern, AI-driven network, Frasers Property Australia has increased customer satisfaction and loyalty while reducing the time to implement network changes from an average of six weeks to five minutes.

Frasers Property in Australia recognized the need to adopt an AI-driven network solution that can deploy connectivity rapidly at any location, while delivering a superior network experience. Apart from its residential, commercial, industrial and retail properties, the company often develops in greenfield1 construction sites without network infrastructures. Its previous cloud-managed Wi-Fi could no longer meet their needs for secure and reliable connectivity. Juniper Networks’ AI-driven solutions were selected to streamline IT operations and provide a consistent network experience, whether employees are in the head office or at a remote construction site.

With the rollout of Juniper’s AI-driven network across 35 residential and commercial properties, Frasers Property Australia can streamline operations and enable its IT team to deploy more technology with the same level of resources, while automating key network tasks, eliminating network downtime and delivering a better user experience. Earlier this year, the company’s world-leading, award-winning retail center, Burwood Brickworks, was recently recognized as the world’s most sustainable shopping center – as the first retail center in the world to attempt, and achieve, Living Building Challenge® Petal Certification – all while giving visitors and tenants a superior Wi-Fi experience powered by Juniper.
