Product Overview

The Juniper Mist Premium Analytics cloud service offers network and security visibility and business intelligence to drive your digital transformation journey. This service provides insights into your network and business operations while overcoming the complex challenges associated with the influx of big data from the multitude of networks and clients.


Product Description

Juniper Mist Premium Analytics is an advanced, cloud-based analytics service that provides enterprises with end-to-end network observability. IT and line-of-business users can gain unique networking and location insights based on any combination of Juniper Mist AI-driven datasets. Simple dashboards make it easy to:

  • Specify criteria and filters
  • Identify issues and trends
  • Generate, schedule, and email customized reports

Premium Analytics is the only analytics service of its kind that stores up to 13 months (or more) of data. This feature extends observability of historical data beyond the 30 days available with the standard Juniper Mist analytics service, enabling users to perform long-term historical time series analyses of network, app, visitor, and employee behavior to enhance business decision making.

IT professionals can use Premium Analytics to obtain insights across their entire network—wired, wireless, and WAN—to help them plan their IT infrastructure, manage resources, gain insights into security events, and improve IT operations. Professionals in a range of vertical markets—including retail, healthcare, education, and hospitality—can use Premium Analytics to analyze long-term trends, visitor behavior, and zone movement. Additionally, Premium Analytics provides facilities managers with insights they can use to optimize space and manage assets and occupancy.


Features and Benefits

Wireless, Wired, and WAN Network Insights

To ensure that IT assets and controls meet the business expectations of your digital business, end-to-end network visibility, continuous monitoring, and actionable insights are critical. This involves not only identifying network infrastructure misconfigurations and issues, but also addressing deficiencies impacting applications, end users, and client devices.

With the Premium Analytics service, networking teams gain insights from client to cloud, allowing them to effectively identify and solve sub-par experiences. They can also use client and traffic utilization data for better planning, resource management, and public safety. Here are some sample networking use cases:

  • Monitoring and behavior reports for applications, traffic, and clients
  • Monitoring historic and average service-level expectations
  • WAN visibility for link and application quality of experience 
  • Ingestion and reporting from Juniper and third-party network devices (not managed by Juniper Mist cloud architecture)
  • Insights on device OS and device manufacturers
  • Traffic metrics on the basis of service set identifier (SSID), switch interfaces, or WAN zones
  • Complete visibility into security events on the network

Discover complete visibility into security events

In the world of security, having a clear view of what is happening on the network is essential to prevent potential threats looking to infiltrate the network. Juniper Mist Premium Analytics gives organizations the security insights they need with visibility into security events and actions within the Juniper Mist dashboard. The security insights dashboard helps security operations teams identify and respond to potential threats, reducing security risks and improving the organization's overall security posture. In addition, the shared operational dashboard between network and security teams allows for awareness of operational sensitivities of both networking and security requirements, ultimately leading to a better customer experience.

Juniper is now enabling the integration of network and security domains to enhance the user experience. With the help of this dashboard, network operations and security teams can easily detect and highlight issues that require further attention to manage a security event. This dashboard can also audit actions to improve operational workflows, benefiting network and security teams.

Together, Juniper Mist Premium Analytics’ Actions Taken dashboard in Mist with the security insights dashboard brings an operational workflow that customers have struggled with for years. It enables collaboration between two often siloed but critically co-dependent functions: networking and security. This industry-first innovation uses a persona-based workflow response system to effectively address threats, regardless of the role. It accelerates time to mitigate threats, improves agility, and reduces operational costs in terms of time and potential damage.


Line of Business Insights

Business insights, including customer and employee engagement, occupancy analysis, and proximity tracing, have become top priorities for digital transformation initiatives, especially in hybrid workforce environments. Whether analyzing retail traffic flows, space occupancy and utilization in the enterprise, optimizing staff operations, or conducting real-time reporting of congested areas, enterprises from different verticals want network data insights to drive decisions around staffing, product placement, real estate planning, and proximity tracing.

Premium Analytics combines location services built into the platform and those available through technology partnerships. User engagement and asset visibility are the location services from Juniper Networks. The result of this combination of location services and analytics is fast access to business insights that support requested analytics about customers and guests.

Enterprises and retailers that segment their end users and subscribe to the user engagement or asset visibility service will see areas where customers visit, allowing them to drive more interactions with associates and customers for higher basket sizes. Retailers can also use the digital platform to help them support industry best practices for cross-selling, omnichannel initiatives, and day-to-day practices like social distancing.
