Service Description

The Juniper® AI Accelerate Service is designed to support large enterprises and service providers that are deploying Juniper Mist solutions for mission-critical applications. Juniper provides necessary assistance and expertise to help customers realize the benefits immediately, improving their time to value. The service is available in two options:

  • Juniper Mist AI Accelerate LAN for the Juniper Mist Wired and Wireless LAN solution
  • Juniper Mist AI Accelerate WAN for the Juniper Mist SD-WAN solution

Both options are delivered remotely with assistance for design, deployment, and accelerated rollout activities.

Customers benefit from assistance for various activities at every stage of the Juniper Mist solution adoption. Table 1 provides a list of service activities that are tailored to each customer’s requirements and goals.

Service Kickoff

All service engagements typically start with a discovery workshop that provides:

  • Transition planning by reviewing all completed activities with a clear understanding of the customer’s overall needs
  • Review of business and technical requirements, including any existing design and deployment plans, is essential to success—this provides an opportunity for customer teams and stakeholders to provide insights based on business and technical goals
  • Identification of a network transition plan, understanding ownership, as well as responsibility, dependency identification, and establishing priorities to guide the engagement.


Design and Deployment Planning

Deployment planning provides the foundation for a successful rollout of Juniper Mist solutions. In this phase, Juniper leverages customer-provided information from the discovery workshop to create optimal designs. For example, a predictive wireless design can be developed to provide optimal wireless coverage based on the customer’s connectivity needs. Assistance in creating Juniper Mist configuration templates  that align to the customer solution is also provided. Templates and additional CLI configurations for the Juniper Mist Wired Assurance solution are applied with guidance on areas, such as variable identification and localization of site-specific variables. Site readiness testing verifies configurations and connectivity prior to service rollout to assure deployment success. The service also helps customers with turn up of Juniper Mist managed devices, implementation, and cutover planning.


Accelerated Rollout

Accelerated Rollout ensures customer’s needs are continually being met and guided properly. This includes runbook development as part of site implementation planning and provides details on processes for deploying the Juniper Mist solution, as applicable to customer’s network. Runbooks are detailed guidelines or documentation for procedures suited for IT activities. The focus is on continually improving and optimizing the rollout process to turn up new sites efficiently. Advice is provided on best practices, including consistent monitoring and health checks. This ensures ongoing success of the customer’s ability to best leverage the Juniper Mist solution.

Project Management

Managing a modern network implementation requires robust planning and adoption of industry best practices. This combination ensures the rollout progresses smoothly, while optimizing efficiency and minimizing risk. The service leverages Juniper Project Manager Methodology (JPMM) for aligning customer goals and services activities, in order to achieve maximum possible progress during the service term. JPMM uses standard processes that are both scalable and tailored for each engagement. It leverages knowledge gained globally from a multitude of project experiences.
