Premium Analytics—Frequently Asked Questions

What is Premium Analytics?

Juniper Mist Premium Analytics is an advanced, cloud-based analytics service that offers end-to-end network observability. You can gain unique networking and location insights based on any combination of Juniper Mist data sets and, optionally, third-party data sets.

Premium Analytics stores data for up to 13 months. This feature extends observability of historical data beyond the 30 days available with the standard Juniper Mist analytics service, enabling users to perform long-term historical time series analyses of network, app, visitor, and employee behavior to enhance business decision-making

What is the difference between analytics features (network, engagement, and occupancy analytics) available by default in the Juniper Mist portal and Premium Analytics?

The Juniper Mist portal comes with built-in network, events, and occupancy analytics reports that are part of Freemium Analytics. These analytics dashboards are included by default in the Juniper Mist portal, and you don't need a license to view these reports.

See Table 1 for the difference between Premium Analytics and standard analytics.

Can Premium Analytics build reports from the extended historical data immediately after activation?

Can you customize Premium Analytics reports?

The Juniper Mist portal does not support customizing Premium Analytics report structure and the tiles. Premium Analytics includes options to filter a report by date, time, site, devices, interfaces, and wireless LAN (WLAN). These options provide the flexibility to see specific information in a report by following a few simple steps.

Does Premium Analytics support role-based access control (RBAC) to limit specific users from generating reports?

The Juniper Mist portal does not support RBAC. For any specific requests related to RBAC, create a support ticket in the Juniper Mist portal to make a specific request related to RBAC.

How do you integrate third-party data with Premium Analytics reports?

You can integrate third-party data in analytics reports through professional services engagement, as this integration requires development work.
