BT11 Access Point Overview

The Juniper® BT11 Access Point is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) indoor access point (AP) that leverages virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) and Mist AI to provide location-based services such as wayfinding, asset visibility, and user engagement.

The BT11 has a dynamic vBLE antenna array that the Juniper Mist cloud controls. The BT11 leverages the Mist AI to provide highly accurate location-based services using virtual beacons. Virtual beacons eliminate the need for physical beacons, resulting in time and cost savings.

The BT11 does not have Wi-Fi radios. You can use a BT11 for full BLE coverage in areas where you don’t need an AP for Wi-Fi coverage.

We offer mobile software development kits (SDKs) for Android and iOS platforms to help mobile devices integrate seamlessly with the BT11 AP. The SDK contains three types of APIs—vBLE beacon, indoor location, and zone analytics.

BT11 Access Point Models

The BT11 is available in two models:

  • BT11-US (United States only)

  • BT11-WW (Outside of the United States)


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 BT11 Access Points

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

  • Location precision and accuracy—The directional vBLE antenna array provides precise locations and accurate location services.

  • Cost-effective beacon deployment—With the vBLE technology, you can quickly deploy and move virtual beacons, eliminating the need for physical beacons. This reduces the cost of deployment and scaling.

  • Real-time visibility—The AP provides a real-time view of the radio frequency environment from the mobile users' perspective.
