Juniper Mist Wireless (Wi-Fi) Assurance
Wi-Fi Assurance is a cloud service based on machine learning and driven by Mist AI. It replaces manual troubleshooting tasks with automated wireless operations to make Wi-Fi predictable, reliable, and measurable and provides unique visibility into user service levels. Set up and track key wireless criteria (pre- and post-connection metrics), such as time to connect, capacity, coverage, and throughput. Anomaly detection automatically captures packets for event correlation and builds network intelligence with radio resource management (RRM) at the client level.
- Proactive optimization of wireless performance
- Simple and secure access to resources
- Dynamic packet capture for troubleshooting
- Proactive root-cause identification
- Network automation with APIs
Features + Benefits
Set, monitor, and enforce service-level expectations (SLEs) for key Wi-Fi performance metrics.
Juniper Mist uses data science and cumulative SLE performance to learn and optimize radio settings to assure performance, while also instantaneously adapting to intermittent outside interference.
The AI-driven RRM takes coverage and capacity anomalies based on client experience (SLE metrics) and proactively feeds that information into the RRM decisions, helping RF planning to continue to improve and adapt in the changing environments that often occur in today’s digital workplaces.
Capture packets for troubleshooting from the Juniper Mist cloud architecture when the system detects a major issue, such as an authorization failure.
Access to capturing packets from scalable Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture when a major issue, such as authorization failure is detected for troubleshooting.
This capability makes it quick and easy to determine the root cause of problems. Also, it eliminates the cost of sending technicians onsite with sniffers.
With our Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE), you can proactively identify and fix the root causes of problems.
The Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance service includes base capabilities for analyzing up to 30 days of data, simplifying the process of extracting network insights from data across your enterprise.
With this capability, you can better align your resources to changing requirements. 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.
The Juniper Mist platform is 100 percent programmable using open APIs for full automation and seamless integration with complementary products.
Say goodbye to complex and costly VLANs and ACLs. With the WxLAN policy feature, Mist lets you assign and prioritize network resources (such as servers and printers) to Wi-Fi users with the click of a mouse or using preassigned policies.
WxLAN automatically classifies users, mobile devices and IoT devices to secure and prioritize traffic. As a Juniper Mist Wi-Fi customer, enterprises gain network visibility and policy enforcement capabilities at the network edge, including IoT devices, without the additional costs of a profiler or policy enforcer (hardware and software) from a legacy solution.
Juniper Mist provides the industry’s most scalable guest access solution, with flexible options including: multiple language support, customizable branding, social login, external captive portal integration, and AAA/RADIUS integration.
The Juniper Mist Platform also has our unique Personal WLAN extension, which enables secure encrypted segmentation without the need for VLANs. Guest traffic can either be locally bridged, tied to a dedicated guest Ethernet port, or tunneled to a centralized concentrator from the access points.
