Juniper Mist Wired Assurance

Juniper Mist Wired Assurance brings cloud management and Mist AI to access layer EX Switches sets a new standard from traditonal network management to AI-driven operations,while delivering better experiences to connected devices


Wired Assurance allows IT teams to streamline operations, reduce mean time to repair and deliver a new generation of experience-first networks. The EX Series Switches combined with Mist AI, enable the insights into switch health and wired service levels expectations (SLEs) for pre- and post- connection metrics.

Key Features

  • Onboard, configure, and manage Juniper EX Series switches from the Juniper Mist cloud
  • Leverage open APIs for automation across third-party integrations
  • Know exactly how switches are performing with AI-driven insights
  • Configure sites and switches using templates and port profiles 
  • Get proactive root-cause identification and self-driving actions

Features + Benefits

Configure and troubleshoot cloud-ready, ZTP-enabled EX Series switches with an activation code for true plug-and-play capabilities. This minimizes onboarding errors, helping to save time and streamline efficiencies.

Once templates and profiles are established, users can implement colorless ports so that devices automatically inherit the appropriate configurations without any manual intervention.

Create consistent, streamlined configurations and universal templates and profiles from the cloud. This structure helps standardize deployments, yet offers the flexibility to tweak specific site or switch attributes.

Dynamic port profiles add another dimension of plug-and-play, where connected devices are automatically detected and assigned the right settings.

Understand the experience of your connected devices with pre- and post-connection performance metrics. Key wired SLE metrics include throughput, number of successful connects, and switch health. These insights allow you to understand exactly how your wired network is performing, removing the guesswork as to the quality of experience users, wired devices, and IoT endpoints are having.

Combined with  Marvis Virtual Network Assistant IT teams can can quickly get the root cause of wired issues. Is it a bad cable? Is it a negotiation mismatch? proactive anomaly detection to identify issues in the wired network before users report them.Mist AI then baselines and then, with its 3rd generation algorithm that boosts efficiancy,proactively detects anomalies to identify and determine root cause when issues occur.

Know exactly how your wired switches are performing across a timeline with detailed device-level metrics, such as CPU and memory utilization and Virtual Chassis status. At the port level, see number of bytes transferred, traffic utilization levels, and power draw.

Receive performance series data or hover over a connected port to see real-time data on the type of wired device and its connectivity details.

Ensure optimal operations with key health metrics such as firmware compliance, missing VLANs, and switch-AP affinity, in multivendor environments when paired with Juniper Access Points.

Open APIs for Third-Party Integrations

Harness the power of 100% open and programmable APIs to fully automate the activation, onboarding, and configuration process. You can integrate with third-party systems like ServiceNow and Splunk, which support APIs for automated ticketing, troubleshooting, and more.

Juniper Mist Wired Assurance includes base capabilities for analyzing up to 30 days of data to help simplify the process of extracting network insights across your enterprise to 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.
