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 pre- and post-connection service-level metrics.
- 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
Simple Switch Provisioning
Configure and troubleshoot cloud-ready, zero-touch provisioning (ZTP)-enabled EX Series Switches with an activation code for 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 devices automatically inherit the right configurations.
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. Understand exactly how your wired network is performing, with no more guesswork about the quality of experience users, wired devices, and IoT endpoints are having and whether you’re meeting service-level expectations (SLEs).
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-Wi-Fi access point (AP) affinity in multivendor environments, when paired with Juniper wireless APs.
Harness the power of 100% open and programmable APIs to fully automate the switch activation, onboarding, and configuration processes. 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.
Training and Community
A smart network supports student success and research goals at UT San Antonio
The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has a bold plan to become a model for student success, a great public research institution, and an exemplar for growth and innovation. More than 34,000 students attend UTSA, and 45% of students are the first in their families to attend college.
UTSA is migrating to an AI-driven campus network from Juniper for a flexible, secure, and operationally efficient digital foundation for learning, research, and innovation.
Driven by Mist AI and machine learning, the Wi-Fi Assurance cloud service automates troubleshooting and operations, making wireless networks predictable, reliable, and measurable while providing near-real-time visibility into user service levels.
Meet Marvis, the first virtual network assistant (VNA) purpose-built with Mist AI for enterprise WLANs, LANs, and WANs. It fundamentally transforms network operations from reactive troubleshooting to proactive remediation through self-driving actions.
