Juniper ends busy week by acquiring video storage assets

It's been a busy week for Juniper Networks.

First, the company unveiled its next-generation core router, upping the speeds and feeds ante with Cisco. Then it acquired WLAN pioneer Trapeze Networks from Belden, expanding its addressable market in the enterprise.

Now it's acquiring Internet video and storage technology in an effort to bolster its content delivery networking portfolio.

2010's top tech M&A deals

Juniper acquired the intellectual property assets of Blackwave, a maker of Internet video storage and delivery infrastructure. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Juniper plans to integrate Blackwave's technology with its Media Flow Controller, a content delivery and caching system designed to scale and improve the performance of media delivery. Blackwave's technology will improve storage performance and the scalability of Media Flow, Juniper said.

Juniper acquired its way into Media Flow and content delivery with the $100 million purchase of Akeena Networks earlier this year. Juniper's content delivery initiatives compete with Cisco's Medianet strategy to video-enable enterprise and service provider networks.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
