Juniper Academic Alliance

The Juniper Academic Alliance increases the relevance of your academic institute by providing your students access to industry-leading technologies and resources to support them in technical training, certification, research and development


Provide instructors with a variety of course materials they can incorporate into their curriculum in ways which they see fit. Members have access to Juniper-authored training materials that can be used as a resource to augment their current courses and curriculum, along with discounts on Juniper Networks products (for use as lab equipment) including innovative virtual lab infrastructure, or member hosted enviroments (using vSRX and vMX platforms).

  • Access to Juniper Networks course material and learning resources.
  • Access to Instructor training resources.
  • Certification vouchers for instructors.
  • Discounts on lab equipment for teaching and/or access to Juniper hosted virtual lab environments to support the curriculum.
  • Discounted Certification vouchers for students.
  • Job placement opportunities for students who gain certifications.
  • Competitions for interested students.



This component of the JNAA program gives institutions the opportunity to engage with an industry leader at a variety of levels. The idea here is to provide students and their instructors the chance to work with Juniper on problems that will either test their abilities and give them additional opportunities to learn and grow, or in the case of a university researcher, provide them with a channel to collaborate within the industry including Juniper Networks, and potentially some of our customers as well.

  • Support and engagement with Juniper Networks Teams.
  • Qualifying projects will receive direct engagement from Juniper Networks’ Research and Development organizations, and may even be eligible for funding.
  • Discounts on lab equipment for teaching and/or access to Juniper hosted virtual lab environments.
  • Students gain experience using their skills in a practical setting.
