The partnership is built on technological excellence and shared values of inclusion and employee well-being. Juniper Networks prioritizes people, equality and diversity. These principles align with the Organizing Committee’s vision, making the Games a model of people-centric values.

“The partnership between Milano Cortina 2026 Foundation and Juniper Networks highlights the experience-first value that intelligent technology can bring to large-scale sports events. Juniper’s AI-Native Networking Platform is designed to provide the data-driven reliability and security needed to manage the relentless demands of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, delivering exceptional connectivity and robust protection of digital assets.”

“Juniper’s partnership with Fondazione Milano Cortina 2026 will showcase Juniper’s services and high-performance networking. As the official secure IP network provider of the Milano Cortina 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Juniper will support in addressing the complexity of the major event across multiple locations. Additionally, Juniper will employ a circular economy approach by collecting and re-cycling all equipment once the event concludes. Juniper’s goal is that none of the equipment goes to waste or ends up in landfill, and instead foster a more environmentally friendly business model. The products will be returned to the production process as pre-owned items through Juniper’s partner.”
