Juniper Mist Wired Assurance

Juniper Mist Wired Assurance brings cloud management and Mist AI to campus fabrics. It sets a new standard for network management by moving your campus deployment toward AI-driven operations, which helps deliver better experiences to connected devices. The Juniper Mist Cloud streamlines deployment and management of your campus fabric, while Mist AI simplifies operations and improves visibility into the performance of connected devices.

Wired Assurance helps IT teams reduce mean time to repair (MTTR) and deliver a new generation of experience-first networking. EX Series switches combined with Mist AI deliver insights into switch health and wired pre- and post-connection service-level metrics.

Key Features


  • Onboard, configure, and manage Juniper EX Series switches from the Juniper Mist Cloud
  • Build and deploy campus fabric architectures in minutes based on intent
  • Leverage open APIs for third-party integration and automation across multivendor environments
  • Use AI-driven insights to learn exactly how switches are performing
  • Configure sites and switches using templates and port profiles 
  • Get proactive root-cause identification and enable 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. You’ll minimize onboarding errors, save time, and streamline efficiencies.

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

Intent-Based Config Models

Create consistent, streamlined configurations and universal templates and profiles from the cloud. Easily build and manage campus fabric architectures in a few clicks based on intent. This structure helps standardize deployments while offering the flexibility to tweak specific site or switch attributes.

Pre- and post-connection performance metrics provide insight into network throughput, number of successful connects, and switch health. You’ll understand exactly how your wired network is performing, so there’s no more guesswork as to the quality of experience that users, wired devices, and IoT endpoints are having.

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

Ensure optimal switch operations with key health metrics such as firmware compliance, missing VLANs, and switch-access point (AP) affinity in multivendor environments, when paired with Juniper wireless APs.

Open APIs

Harness the power of 100% open and programmable APIs to fully automate the switch 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.

You can analyze up to 30 days of data to help simplify the process of extracting network insights across your enterprise to better align your resources with changing requirements.
