NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Juniper Networks (JNPR - Get Report) shares are down sharply in after-hours trading, following a cut to its fourth quarter earnings.

The networking giant said it expects to earn between 26 cents and 28 cents per share for the fourth quarter ending Dec. 31. It expects revenue will come in between $1.11 billion and $1.12 billion. Juniper had previously seen earnings of 32 cents to 36 cents per share on $1.16 billion to $1.22 billion in revenue.
