Maximize Your Network with Mist AI

As organizations grow, they bring more and more devices – often wireless – onto the network, changing network requirements and increasing demand for reliable connectivity and analytics. More devices also means more need for bandwidth, speed, and density. To alleviate Wi-Fi congestion, indoor low-powered devices can operate on the 6 GHz band (Wi-Fi 6E), which promises more capacity and increased channel width to maximize user and IT experiences on the network.

In order for organizations to take full advantage of Wi-Fi 6E, Juniper offers two tri-band access points (APs), managed via the same Mist cloud and AI engine as the rest of the Juniper Mist portfolio. Both are 2.4 GHz/5 GHz/6 GHz quad-radio. AP45 supports 4×4:4SS and vBLE array, and AP34 supports 2×2:2SS and omni BLE.

All of Juniper’s APs provide a wide range of location-based services in a scalable and cost-effective manner, and Juniper’s AI solutions for Wi-Fi 6E help support optimized operator and user experiences with insight and AI-driven actions powered by secure client-to-cloud automation. But with these two tri-band APs, Juniper has taken its focus on optimized operator and user experiences to the next level, automating and boosting performance and eliminating compromises. The AP45 and AP34 Series work in conjunction with the Juniper Mist Cloud architecture, driven by Mist AI, to collect and analyze metadata in near real time from all wireless clients. This enables rapid problem detection and root cause identification with predictive recommendations and proactive troubleshooting.

In addition to these APs, Juniper offers an IoT Assurance service that streamlines and scales the onboarding and securing of IoT devices without Network Access Control (NAC).

This cloud service simplifies IT operations and secures connections for headless IoT and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) devices. It incorporates a full suite of access control functionality for seamless MAC-less and NAC-less client onboarding, leveraging Multiple Pre-Shared Key (MPSK) or Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) as a new type of identity and policy vector. With the IoT Assurance service, enterprise IT teams can easily onboard and manage BYOD and IoT devices at scale, while providing full segmentation and policy control as with traditional authentication. Juniper Mist IoT Assurance can quickly onboard IoT and BYOD devices at cloud scale, assigning key based WxLAN policy for each device and enabling device traffic engineering. It maximizes end-user experience, while simplifying IT management, planning and troubleshooting.
