Device Profile Options

To access the Device Profiles page, select Organization > Device Profiles from the left menu of the Juniper Mist™ portal.

Table 1: Device Profile Options
Option Default Summary
WLAN Options none Defines WLAN characteristics such as SSID, the authentication protocol, radio band availability, and Guest portal availability. Also defines user-access policies and support for tunneling wireless client traffic to third-party devices.
LEDs not enabled Enables or disables LEDs for all APs attached to the device profile. You can also set the brightness of the LED.
Electronic Shelf Label Bridge none Defines settings for the USB port on the AP for interoperability with third-party electronic shelf labels (ESL) system dongles.
AeroScout & Centrak none Defines settings for interoperability with third-party Real-Time Location System (RTLS), or asset tracking systems, including AeroScout and Centrak.
Mesh not enabled Defines whether the AP is a relay or base for use in mesh networks.
IP Settings DHCP Defines how the AP and clients get an IP address: manually (static) or automatically from a DHCP server.
Ethernet Properties not enabled Defines PoE and VLAN settings for the Ethernet ports on the AP.
BLE Settings not enabled Enables or disables vBLE for location services on Juniper APs. Also adjusts beacon power.
2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, 6 GHz Radio Band Settings Inherit from Site

Defines whether the Juniper AP should use the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and/or 6 GHz radio band settings configured for the site (default) or the device-level radio band settings configured on the AP. At the device-level, you can enable/disable a given radio band, set radio power levels, and control which channels are used.

Dual Band Radio Settings Auto Enables/disables 5 GHz on dual-band AP radios. By default, the AP radios operate on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. When only 5 GHz is enabled on a dual-band AP, both radios can operate on the 5 GHz.
Device Profile Variables none Defines variables in the device profile so you can customize the WLAN setup for different groups of APs while keeping a common configuration base You can create variables for SSIDs, passphrases, VLAN, bands and the AAA server.
