Juniper built the first AI-driven wireless platform, designed specifically for the Smart Device Era. The Juniper AI-Driven Network makes Wi-Fi predictable, reliable, and measurable by providing unprecedented visibility into the user experience and by replacing time-consuming manual IT tasks with proactive automation. In addition, Juniper is the first vendor to bring enterprise-grade Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® LE, and IoT together to deliver personalized, location-based wireless services without requiring battery-powered beacons.
Juniper AI-Driven Network Components
Marvis Virtual Assistant
Patent-pending machine learning algorithms adapt in real-time to optimize the wireless user experience. In addition, Marvis uses AI to proactively automate IT operations, provide real-time alerts, and predict problems before they arise.
The Juniper Mist™ Cloud Architecture
All wireless deployment, setup, operations, and insight are handled via the Juniper Mist cloud, which was designed to provide unprecedented visibility and control at Web scale. A microservices architecture provides maximum agility when rolling out new features/services.
Juniper Access Point Family
The Juniper enterprise-grade access point family consists of:
- AP61, AP21, and AP41 Series, which support 802.11ac Wave 2, Bluetooth LE, and IoT
- AP12, AP32, AP33, AP43, and AP63 Series, which support 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6), Bluetooth® LE, and IoT
- BT11, which supports Bluetooth LE
These access points are all built on a real-time microservices platform and are managed by the Juniper Mist cloud.

High-Performance Outdoor Wi-Fi Access
The AP61 delivers high-performance wireless access with three 802.11ac Wave 2 radios that deliver up to 1,730 Mbps in the 5GHz band and up to 800 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band.
Whether you want to extend your users’ experiences outside the four walls or you want to set up pervasive outdoor wireless with mesh backhaul, the AP61 delivers the best performance with the simplest operations in an industrial-grade form factor.
High-Accuracy Indoor Location
The AP61 has a 16-element Virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) antenna array controlled from the Juniper Mist cloud. Passive antennas enhance the power of a single transmitter and produce directional beams to accurately detect distance and location with 1 to 3 meter accuracy. With Juniper’s patented vBLE technology, you can deploy an unlimited number of virtual beacons in your physical environment without requiring battery-powered BLE beacons.
Unprecedented Insight and Action
A dedicated dual-band radio collects data for Juniper’s patent-pending Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE), which leverages machine learning to analyze user experiences, correlate problems, and automatically detect the root cause of problems. These metrics are used to monitor service-level expectations (SLEs) and provide proactive recommendations to ensure problems don’t occur (or are fixed as quickly as possible when they do).
Juniper Mist’s Wireless Assurance, User Engagement and Asset Visibility service includes a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, from which you can extract network insights across your enterprise. To extend these capabilities for more dynamic insights like motion paths and other third-party* data, along with the option to generate customized reports, the Juniper Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.
Dynamic Packet Capture
The Juniper Mist platform automatically captures packets and streams them to the cloud when major issues are detected. This saves IT time and effort and eliminates the need for truck rolls with sniffers.
Effortless, Cloud-Based Setup and Updates
The AP61 automatically connects to the Juniper Mist cloud, 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.
Constantly monitor services running on the AP61 and send alerts whenever a service behaves abnormally. Dynamic debugging relieves IT of having to worry about an AP going offline or any services running on it becoming unavailable.
Automatic RF Optimization
The AP61’s dual-band scanning mode continuously scans the airspace for threats and interference. This ensures optimal performance under what could otherwise be challenging RF conditions. The AP61’s dual-band sensor continuously scans the airspace for threats and interference.
