AP41 Access Point Overview

The Juniper® AP41 High Performance Access Point is a Wi-Fi 5 indoor access point (AP) that leverages the Mist AI to collect and analyze real-time data from wireless clients. Mist uses this data to identify a network problem and its root cause and also provide proactive recommendations for resolution.

The AP41 has three IEEE 802.11ac radios, which deliver up to 4x4 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) with four spatial streams. Out of the three radios, one is dedicated for scanning. The AP uses this radio for radio resource management (RRM) and wireless security. The AP41 can operate in either multi-user or single-user mode. The AP41 is backward compatible with the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n wireless standards.

The AP41 has integrated IoT sensors and an interface port to control analog or digital devices. This capability is useful in advanced location-based use cases, such as door locking and camera control.

The AP41 also has a 16-element virtual Bluetooth Low Energy (vBLE) antenna array to support asset visibility use cases. The AP41 provides real-time network insights and asset location services without the need for battery-powered BLE beacons and manual calibration.

The AP41 provides maximum data rates of 1730 Mbps in the 5-GHz band and 800 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band.

Customers are responsible for ensuring that any regional or country-specific SKUs are used only in the specified authorized area. Failure to do so may void the warranty of Juniper products.

Benefits of AP41 Access Points

  • Simple and quick deployment—You can deploy the AP with minimal manual intervention. The AP automatically connects to the Mist cloud after it powers on, downloads its configuration, and connects to the appropriate network. Automatic firmware upgrades ensure that the AP runs the latest firmware version.

  • Proactive troubleshooting—The AI-driven Marvis® Virtual Network Assistant leverages the Mist AI to identify issues proactively and provide recommendations to fix the issues. Marvis can identify issues such as offline APs and APs with insufficient capacities and coverage.

  • High location accuracy—The internal vBLE antenna provides precise location accuracy within a range of 1 to 3 meters.
