Overview:

The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) AP63 access point offers high-performance Wi-Fi to ensure enterprise business continuity and operation efficiency in outdoor environments. The ruggedized and weather-resistant access points can be deployed in extremely harsh environments to meet service-level expectations (SLEs) and deliver unprecedented user experiences. The AP63 integrates the Juniper patented Mist AI for AX capabilities and dynamic virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) antenna array to automate network operation and boost Wi-Fi performance. The AP63's integrated technologies also provide real-time network insights and location services, including Juniper User Engagement, Asset Location, and Contact Tracing. These location services operate without the need for battery-powered BLE beacons and manual calibration. Managed by the Juniper Mist cloud architecture, the outdoor AP63 is ideal for retail curbside, enterprise campus, public venue, outdoor station, and industrial site environments.

Juniper AI-Driven Network

Juniper brings true innovation to the wireless space with the world’s first AI-driven wireless LAN (WLAN).

The Juniper AI-Driven Enterprise makes Wi-Fi predictable, reliable, and measurable, offering unprecedented visibility into the user experience through the use of unique SLE metrics. Proactive, AI-driven automation and self-healing replace timeconsuming manual tasks, lowering Wi-Fi operational costs and saving substantial time and money.

All operations are managed using the open and programmable microservices-based Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture. The system delivers maximum network scalability and performance while also bringing DevOps agility to WLANs and location services.

The Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture

Juniper’s cloud-native, AI-driven microservices architecture delivers unparalleled agility, scale, and resiliency to your network. Its lowers OpEx and delivers unprecedented insights into network performance, behaviors, traffic patterns, and potential trouble spots by using data science to analyze large amounts of rich metadata collected by Juniper Access Points.

Juniper Mist Edge

Juniper Mist Edge is an on-premises appliance that runs a tunnel termination service. Juniper APs offer a flexible data plane. Traffic can be broken out locally, or tunneled to Juniper Mist Edge. There are many use cases the Juniper Mist Edge solves, including seamless mobility in large campus environments, tunneling of guest traffic to a DMZ, IoT segmentation, and teleworker.

Features:

High Performance Wi-Fi

The outdoor AP63 Series comprises tri-radio 4x4 802.11ax access points with maximum data rates of 2,400 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 1,148 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. The third radio functions as a network, location, and security sensor, a synthetic test client radio, as well as a spectrum monitor.

With 802.11ax Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO), and BSS Coloring technologies, the AP63 Series offers performance at unprecedented levels to support new bandwidth-hungry applications and soaring device densities.

AI for AX

With the new features that 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) introduces to boost performance and efficiency, configuring and operating an access point has grown far more complex. Juniper automates and optimizes these features with AI for AX capabilities to optimize BSS Coloring, improve data transmission scheduling within OFDMA and MU-MIMO, and assign clients to the best radio to boost the overall performance of the network.

Greater Spectral Efficiency

OFDMA improves spectral efficiency so that an increasing density of devices can be supported on the network. Density has become an issue with the rapid growth of IoT devices, which often utilize smaller data packets than mobile devices and hence increase the burden and contention on the network. Additionally, BSS Coloring improves the coexistence of overlapping BSSs and allows spatial reuse within a given channel by reducing packet collisions.

Automatic RF optimization

Radio Resource Management automates dynamic channel and power assignment, taking Wi-Fi and external sources of interference into account with a dedicated sensor radio. The AI engine continuously monitors coverage and capacity SLE metrics to learn and optimize the RF environment. A learning algorithm uses hysteresis on a 24-hour window to conduct a sitewide rebalancing for optimal channel and power assignment.

Unprecedented Insight and Action

A dedicated, dual-band third radio collects data for Juniper’s patent- pending Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE), which uses machine learning to analyze user experiences, correlate problems, and automatically detect their root cause. These metrics are used to monitor SLEs and provide proactive recommendations to ensure problems don’t occur (or are fixed as quickly as possible when they do). This radio also functions as a synthetic test client to proactively detect and mitigate network anomalies.

Improved IoT Battery Efficiency

By incorporating the 802.11ax target wake time (TWT) capability and Bluetooth 5.0, AP63 access points help extend the battery life of IoT devices, particularly as additional ones join the network.

Dynamic Debugging

Constantly monitor services running on the AP63 and send alerts whenever a service behaves abnormally. Dynamic debugging relieves IT of having to worry about an AP going offline or any services running on it becoming unavailable.

Dynamic Packet Capture

The Juniper Mist platform automatically captures packets and streams them to the cloud when major issues are detected. This saves IT time and effort and eliminates the need for truck rolls with sniffers to reproduce and capture data for troubleshooting.

Marvis Virtual Conversational Assistant

Marvis is a natural language processing (NLP)-based assistant with a Conversational Interface to understand user intent and goals, simplifying troubleshooting and the collection of network insights. It uses AI and data science to proactively identify issues, determine the root causes and scope of impact, and gain insights into your network and user experiences. It eliminates the need to manually hunt through endless dashboards and CLI commands.

Effortless, Cloud-Based Setup and Updates

The AP63 automatically connects to the Juniper Mist cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. Firmware updates are retrieved and installed automatically, ensuring that the network is always up to date with new features, bug fixes, and security updates.

Premium Analytics

Our Wireless Assurance, User Engagement, and Asset Visibility services include a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, which enables you to simplify the process of extracting network insights across your enterprise. If you require dynamic insights like motion paths and other third-party data and would like the option of customized reports, the Juniper Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.

High-Accuracy Indoor Location

The AP63 has a 16-element virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) antenna array controlled from the Juniper Mist cloud. Passive antennas enhance the power of a single transmitter and produce directional beams (or can be combined to act as an omnidirectional radio) to accurately detect distance and location with 1-3 meter meter accuracy. With Juniper’s patented vBLE technology, you can deploy an unlimited number of virtual beacons in your physical environment with no need to install battery-powered physical BLE beacons. Support for Bluetooth 5.0 boosts IoT device range and battery life.

Patented VBLE Technology

In addition to the industry-leading Wi-Fi technology at the heart of the AP63 access point, our second-generation, patented, and dynamic, 16-element virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) antenna array combines with machine learning to eliminate the need for battery-powered beacons. This maximizes scalability and optimizes your deployment investment in location-based services. vBLE enables businesses to provide rich location-based experiences that are engaging, accurate, real-time, and scalable.
