AP45 Access Point Overview

The Juniper® AP45 High Performance Access Point is a Wi-Fi 6E access point (AP) that provides virtual Bluetooth® Low Energy (vBLE) in the 6-GHz band for enterprises that require increased channel width and capacity. The AP45 has four IEEE 802.11ax radios, which deliver up to 4x4 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) with four spatial streams. Out of the four radios, one is dedicated for scanning. The AP uses this radio for radio resource management (RRM) and wireless security.

The AP45 can operate in either multi-user or single-user mode. The AP45 can operate simultaneously in the 6-GHz, 5-GHz, and 2.4-GHz bands. The AP45 is backward compatible with the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac wireless standards.

The AP45 has a 16-element vBLE antenna array. These antennas send out directional beams that ensure precise location accuracy. The Juniper Mist Cloud controls the vBLE antenna array, enabling location services such as asset visibility, wayfinding, and other services without battery-powered beacons

The AP45 provides maximum data rates of 4800 Mbps in the 6-GHz band, 2400 Mbps in the 5-GHz band, and 1148 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band.

Juniper products are manufactured in accordance with electrical and environmental regulations specific to certain regions and countries. 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 AP45 Access Points

  • Simple and quick deployment—You can deploy the AP with minimal manual intervention. The AP automatically connects to the Mist cloud on powering 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.

  • Improved performance through automatic RF optimization—Juniper radio resource management (RRM) automates dynamic channel and power assignment, which helps to reduce interference and enhance user experience. The Mist AI monitors the coverage and capacity metrics and optimizes the RF environment.
