Juniper will eliminate 500 jobs in India.

Tata Technologies plans to hire 35,000

Juniper Networks, which recently merged with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), is planning to downsize its workforce in India. This move will affect nearly 500 employees, which is approximately 10-15% of its total workforce. According to a report published in the Economic Times, this decision has been taken following the regulatory approvals for the merger. The layoffs will impact several departments, including sales, marketing, shared services, product development, and research and development (R&D).

The company is expected to restructure overlapping roles in these departments. The merger is scheduled to be completed by late 2024 or early 2025. While the integration planning phase is in progress, HPE will evaluate team structures and talent requirements to ensure uninterrupted business operations and customer satisfaction. HPE’s acquisition of Juniper aims to strengthen its enterprise networking business and compete with industry leaders such as Cisco.

Juniper Networks is a multinational corporation known for developing and marketing networking products, including routers, switches, network management software, and security products. Founded in 1996 by Pradeep Sindhu, a former staff scientist at Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), the company gained recognition for its high-performance routers, which were designed to handle the increasing demands of internet traffic and data centers.

Along with hardware products, Juniper provides various software solutions for network management, security, and automation. It also offers professional services such as consulting, training, and technical support to help customers deploy and optimize their network infrastructure.
