What does the future hold for Juniper?

Last week Juniper Networks released its third quarter results showing revenue of US$1 billion, up four per cent from the previous quarter and one per cent from the same quarter a year ago.
Yet as Jim Duffy of Network World U.S. points out in this analysis, things may not be well for the network equipment manufacturer. During a conference call with financial analysts the company said that the four quarter will show a drop in earnings. Is this a sign of a slowing global economy, as many other companies are reporting this month, or an indication of bigger trouble?
