Rami Rahim, CEO at Juniper Networks

Rami Rahim is the chief executive officer and a board of director member at networking specialist Juniper Networks

In 2014, he served as executive vice president and general manager for the Juniper development and innovation group, which is in charge of product and technology strategies, business growth plans and the Junos operating system. 

From November 2012 to March 2014, Rahim was executive vice president and general manager for the platform systems division, overseeing the strategy, development and business expansion of the company’s portfolio of routing, switching branch and WLAN products. 

He held various positions of increasing responsibility from September to October 2012 in hardware engineering, product management, and edge and aggregation. 

Juniper is set to purchase 128 Technology for $450M to advance the company’s AI-driven enterprise network portfolio. The acquisition is expected to speed up the organization’s efforts to migrate from a branch-to-cloud platform to a client-to-cloud system using artificial intelligence

The purchase is also seen to help the company minimize IT costs resulting from network automation and bring down system overhead expenses to provide enhanced services for customers in voice over IP, 5G technology and collaboration applications. 

In addition, Telefonica Spain has chosen Juniper to secure the mobile backhaul of the telephone operator’s 5G network. 

The telecommunications company selected the company’s networking platform to support services in areas including carrier-grade network address translation, stateful firewall, intrusion prevention systems, denial of service, application security and unified threat management. 

Rahim earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto and Stanford University, respectively. He also finished a six-week executive program at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.
