Features + Benefits
This feature uses Mist AI to identify the root cause of network issues across WLAN, LAN, WAN, and security domains. Use Marvis Actions to manage firmware upgrades, add missing VLANs, identify bad cables, find negotiation mismatches, ID congested WAN circuits, and get effective recommendations for resolving issues with third-party connected systems.
Marvis uses advanced NLP to understand user intent and goals. Its Conversational Assistant contextualizes your natural language inquiries to provide specific answers, whether you’re troubleshooting or searching for devices or documentation. Ask Marvis any question without having to remember specific dashboards or CLI commands.
Marvis Query Language
With MQL, you can follow a structured format for asking Marvis a question to get raw or tabular data to monitor or troubleshoot your users’ experiences and gauge the overall health of your network.
ID Scope with Correlated Data
Marvis correlates information across a large knowledge base, including WLAN, LAN, WAN, and security domains, to determine the scope and magnitude of a problem. This correlation helps you prioritize issues, allocate resources efficiently, and reduce pressure on support teams.
Android and Windows Clients
Currently available for Android and Windows devices, Marvis client software delivers rich network visibility into Wi-Fi experiences from the user device’s perspective. You can understand how any connected device sees the Wi-Fi environment and view its properties, such as device type, OS, radio hardware, and radio firmware versions.
Juniper continues to enhance Marvis, our virtual network assistant’s capabilities with integrations including Microsoft Teams, ChatGPT, Zoom, and more, to improve the overall user experience of our customers. Click the “+” to learn more about each integration.
Microsoft Teams Integration
The Marvis application is integrated with Microsoft Teams. You can set it up quite easily.

You can troubleshoot devices, search for devices, and troubleshoot sites from Teams. Network Operation Center (NOC) users can use this app to debug all aspects of support tickets.
You can use the Marvis app as an individual user or as part of a team through a Teams channel.
Juniper has expanded Marvis' conversational interface with ChatGPT to deliver more human-like conversational capabilities, particularly regarding documentation and support issues. Together, Marvis and ChatGPT provide concise, detailed responses to questions about technical documentation and other publicly available, historical knowledge base information.
Marvis ingests data about user experiences with the Zoom conferencing application and combines it with wired, wireless, and WAN performance data using advanced AI and machine learning techniques. Marvis’ integration with Zoom allows you to quickly identify and remediate the root cause of videoconferencing problems.
Juniper and Zebra Technologies have teamed up to bring the first conversational interface to Zebra’s mobile device management tools for enterprise networks. With Marvis-Zebra integration, you gain enhanced telemetry and visibility into the Zebra client experience.
