Access Point Scale Considerations

Juniper Mist Edge supports an elastically scalable cluster that has an unlimited number of nodes. The scalable cluster includes options for backup clusters. The Juniper Mist Edge cluster design for the tunneling microservice depends on the aggregate capacity considerations for several access points (APs) and clients, and on throughput expectations.

The Juniper Mist cloud solution can scale to manage, configure, and monitor thousands of APs without an on-premises controller-managed topology. You can choose the appropriate edge for your deployment by referring to the metrics mentioned in Table 1.

Note:

For medium and large campus deployments, we recommend the Mist Edge- X5-M device with 80 percent maximum AP capacity considering failover as well as growth.
