Cloud-based and AI-driven architectures are fundamentally reshaping enterprise networks. Legacy architectures for wired, wireless, and WANs are not designed to support modern applications or services, and they do not assure client-to-cloud performance. Modern enterprises require AI-driven networks that can handle today’s diverse workloads and dynamic data flows.
Juniper Mist Premium Onboarding Service streamlines the deployment of the Juniper Mist AI-Driven Enterprise portfolio, including wired, wireless, and WAN solutions for new Juniper Mist customers. The service provide access to Juniper Professional Services technology experts, industry best practices, and extensive knowledge of Mist AI.
Juniper® Mist™ Premium Onboarding Service supports large enterprises that are deploying a Juniper Mist solution for their mission-critical applications. The service provides multiple components that helps organizations realize the benefits of the Juniper AI-driven wired, wireless, and WAN architecture in the fastest time frame possible—and experience a smooth and predictable deployment.
The service provides access to Juniper Mist deployment experts with extensive knowledge of Juniper Mist solutions and technologies, as well as expertise in best practices for transitioning to AI-driven deployment, monitoring, and operations. Both onsite and remote consultants provide support and employ proven implementation methodologies and tools to ensure faster deployments and reduced risks.
The Juniper Mist Premium Onboarding service is offered in two levels: Wireless only and Juniper Mist full stack that covers wired, wireless, and WAN solutions.
The Premium Onboarding Service provides customers with access to Juniper Mist consultants for a period of three contiguous months. The service can be tailored to customers' requirements which provides a combination of on onsite and remote activities. Customers are supported based on a list of one or more tasks described in the below simple methodology spanning four phases – Discovery, Design and Test, Pilot Site Implementation, and Remote Monitoring (Figure 1).
Initial Discovery and Design and Test (Onsite)
The service starts with a Discovery Workshop where a Professional Services Consultant works at the customer site to understand overall customer needs. Once customer information is collected, the consultant provides initial Design and Test of the proposed implementation. These two phases cover activities that are critical to solution deployment for the pilot site. Key tasks are:
- Predictive wireless design
- Templates design and configuration
- Implementation planning
- Migration planning
- First Office Application
- Site-readiness testing
- Cutover support for pilot site
The Discovery and Design and Test phases provide the foundation for a successful rollout of Juniper Mist solutions. The customer-provided information is used to create a predictive wireless design that will maintain healthy wireless coverage based on the customer’s connectivity needs. The Juniper Mist Professional Services consultant works with the customer to prepare the initial pilot site implementation and cutover plan. The devices for the pilot site are configured using designed configuration templates. Site-readiness testing verifies all configurations and connectivity prior to service rollout to assure deployment success.
Pilot Site Implementation and Remote Monitoring (Offsite)
The next phase is Pilot Site Implementation, where the service transitions to an offsite consultant who provides support remotely. During Remote Monitoring, the offsite consultant provides various ongoing tasks including :
- Continued implementation support
- Proactive network monitoring
- Daily check-in for health checks
- Ongoing remote monitoring to assist with queries, issues, or configuration tasks
Oversite of all critical and high-priority issues, such as proactive alerting, triaging, and resolution assistance
Project Management (Ongoing)
Managing a modern network implementation requires robust planning and adoption of industry best practices. This combination helps ensure that the rollout progresses smoothly, while optimizing efficiency and minimizing risk. Juniper Project Management Methodology (JPMM) uses standard processes that are scalable yet tailored for each engagement. It leverages knowledge gained globally from hundreds of project experiences.
This approach delivers:
- A controlled and organized start, middle, and end to the service engagement
- Weekly planning and status updates
- Flexible decision points
- The involvement of management and stakeholders at the right time and place throughout the project
- Escalating any Juniper Mist support issues
- Smooth handover between onsite and remote teams
