Features + Benefits

The Juniper AP12 access point is a tri-radio 2x2:2SS 802.11ax access point with maximum data rates of 1,200 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 575 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band.

The wall plate AP12 access point with Five Ethernet ports enable flexible deployment while providing multiple IT and IoT device connections.

Radio Resource Management (RRM) automates dynamic channel and power assignment, taking Wi-Fi and external sources of interference into account with its dedicated sensor radio.

Mist AI continuously monitors the coverage and capacity SLE metrics to learn and optimize the RF environment.

A dedicated dual-band third radio collects data for our patent-pending Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE).

The AP12 leverages machine learning to analyze user experience, correlate problems and automatically detect the root cause of problems.

The Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture automatically captures packets and streams them to the cloud when major issues are detected.

This capability saves IT time and effort and eliminates the need for truck rolls with sniffers to reproduce and capture data for troubleshooting.

The AP12 automatically connects to the Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network.

Firmware updates are retrieved and installed automatically, ensuring that the network is always up to date with new features, bug fixes, and security updates.

Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance, User Engagement and Asset Visibility services include a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, simplifying the process of extracting network insights from data and analytics across your enterprise to properly align your support resources or introduce enhanced premium services. 

You can also subscribe to our Premium Analytics service to enable these advanced capabilities: further extend network insights and perform analytics for up to a one-year data set; enable custom reporting; and infuse telemetry from third-party data elements.

Improved Battery Efficiency for IoT Devices

By incorporating the 802.11ax Target Wake Time (TWT) capability and Bluetooth 5.0, battery life for IoT devices can be extended as new IoT devices enter the network.

Constantly monitor services running on the AP12 Series and send alerts whenever a service behaves abnormally. 

Dynamic debugging relieves IT of having to worry about an AP going offline or any services becoming unavailable.
