Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance
Built on Modern Microservices Cloud Architecture
The Juniper Mist platform is built on a modern microservices cloud architecture, which enables elastic scalability to meet your changing wired and wireless network market requirements. Our platform delivers operational simplicity, 100% API-based programmability, and customer engagement through location-based services.
Wi-Fi Assurance replaces manual troubleshooting tasks with automated wireless operations. This subscription service makes Wi-Fi predictable, reliable, and measurable with unique visibility into user service levels. For example, you can set up and track service-level thresholds for key wireless criteria.
Anomaly detection automates triggers to capture packets for event correlation and builds network intelligence with Radio Resource Management (RRM) at the client level. These functions deliver unprecedented visibility into each user's wireless network experience, allowing you to reliably extend Wi-Fi quality to the end user.
The Juniper Mist cloud services are 100% programmable with all functions (provisioning, monitoring, alerts) available through open APIs, which enable you to integrate with your IT applications to automate your network and line-of-business operations.
- Proactive optimization of wireless performance
- Simple and secure access to resources
- Dynamic packet capture for troubleshooting
- Proactive root-cause identification
- Network automation with APIs
The Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture is moving IT operations closer to the intelligent Self-Driving Network™ in the era of the AI-Driven Enterprise.
Juniper's machine learning, the engine of our Wi-Fi Assurance service, replaces manual troubleshooting tasks with automated wireless operations. Minimize costs while maximizing Wi-Fi performance and reliability.
Customizable Wi-Fi Service Levels
Set, monitor, and enforce service-level expectations (SLEs) for key Wi-Fi performance metrics.
Juniper Mist uses data science and cumulative SLE performance to learn and optimize radio settings to assure performance, while also instantaneously adapting to intermittent outside interference.
The AI-driven RRM takes coverage and capacity anomalies based on client experience (SLE metrics) and proactively feeds that information into the RRM decisions, helping RF planning to continue to improve and adapt in the changing environments that often occur in today's digital workplaces.
Dynamic Packet Capture
Capture packets for troubleshooting from the Juniper Mist cloud architecture when the system detects a major issue, such as an authorization failure.
Access to capturing packets from scalable Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture when a major issue, such as authorization failure is detected for troubleshooting.
This capability makes it quick and easy to determine the root cause of problems. Also, it eliminates the cost of sending technicians onsite with sniffers.
Root-Cause Identification in One Click
With our Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE), you can proactively identify and fix the root causes of problems.
Total Programmability with Open APIs
The Juniper Mist platform is 100 percent programmable using open APIs for full automation and seamless integration with complementary products.
Simple Resource Assignment and Prioritization
Say goodbye to complex and costly VLANs and ACLs. With the WxLAN policy feature, Mist lets you assign and prioritize network resources (such as servers and printers) to Wi-Fi users with the click of a mouse or using preassigned policies.
WxLAN automatically classifies users, mobile devices and IoT devices to secure and prioritize traffic. As a Juniper Mist Wi-Fi customer, enterprises gain network visibility and policy enforcement capabilities at the network edge, including IoT devices, without the additional costs of a profiler or policy enforcer (hardware and software) from a legacy solution.
Juniper Mist provides the industry's most scalable guest access solution, with flexible options including: multiple language support, customizable branding, social login, external captive portal integration, and AAA/RADIUS integration.
The Juniper Mist Platform also has our unique Personal WLAN extension, which enables secure encrypted segmentation without the need for VLANs. Guest traffic can either be locally bridged, tied to a dedicated guest Ethernet port, or tunneled to a centralized concentrator from the access points.

Set, Monitor, and Enforce Service Levels
Set up and track service-level thresholds for key wireless pre- and post-connection metrics, such as time to connect, capacity, coverage, and throughput. At any given time, you can see how your network is performing against service level expectations (SLEs) with deep visibility, including location context into impacted users, applications, and devices.
Comprehensive Network Performance and SLE Dashboard Analytics
In addition to proactively correlating events and providing remediation recommendations, the platform also provides a daily and weekly trend of the SLE metrics. These reports provide unprecedented visibility over the last week for longer-term trend analysis into anomalies seen at the AP, device, application, and OS levels. The current set of available SLEs are: Time to Connect, Successful Connects, Throughput, Roaming, Coverage, Capacity, AP Uptime, WAN.
Risk Profiling Driven by Mist AI
WAN Assurance is a key component of the Risk Profiling solution, which brings network security to the distributed network edge. Risk Profiling provides visibility into infected wired or wireless clients that's observable within the Juniper Mist cloud and assigns a threat score determined by the Juniper ATP cloud. From within the Juniper Mist cloud you can geospacially locate infected devices and take one-touch mitigation actions like ban or deauthenticate.
Simple Root-Cause Analysis and Remediation
Juniper dynamically collects information from all endpoints and correlates it for quick wireless, wired, and device problem identification. More than 150 state changes are captured for each client device and access point every few seconds. Predictive recommendations and automated workflows let you quickly remediate problems or prevent them entirely. This rootcause analysis feature can be further enhanced by the Marvis Virtual Network Assistant service.
Juniper Mist profiles clients for device types, operating systems, applications, location, and user role. This enables WxLAN to autodetect printers, Apple TVs, and other IoT devices and to categorize them for security and audit reasons, without requiring any manual database management.
AI-Driven Radio Resource Management
Unlike other solutions, Mist uses data science and cumulative SLE performance to learn and improve radio settings to assure performance, while also instantaneously adapting to intermittent outside interference. Our AI-driven Radio Resource Management proactively feeds coverage and capacity anomalies based on client experience (SLE metrics) into RF decisions so that RF planning continues to improve and adapt.
WxLAN Policy Creation and Enforcement
Juniper Mist delivers operational simplicity by allowing you to create policies for role, device type, and user-based access on the network with our inline policy engine, WxLAN. Global labels created for physical and logical resources (users, WLAN, AP, IP addresses, IP subnets, applications) enable policies to be enforced at the edge on our access points.
