Overview:

Juniper Mist Wired Assurance is a cloud service that brings automated operations and service levels to enterprise campus switches, IoT devices, access points, servers, printers, and other equipment. It simplifies every aspect of wired switching, from Day 0 for seamless onboarding and auto-provisioning through Day 2 and beyond for operations and management. Juniper EX and Juniper QFX Series Ethernet Switches provide rich streaming telemetry through the Junos® operating system, which enables insights into what the switch is experiencing and how it is doing.

Marvis Virtual Network Assistant (VNA) complements Wired Assurance by using Mist AI to simplify and troubleshoot network operations with self-driving actions that automatically remediate issues. Marvis enables teams to shift from reactive troubleshooting to proactive remediation by turning insights into automated actions as part of the Self-Driving Network™.

Juniper Mist cloud services are 100% programmable, using open APIs for full automation and/or integration with your IT applications.

  • 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

Product Overview

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.

Benefits:

Wired Service-Level Expectations

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.

Pre- and post-connection performance metrics provide insight into network throughput, number of successful connects, and switch health. You’ll understand exactly how your wired network is performing, so there’s no more guesswork as to the quality of experience that users, wired devices, and IoT endpoints are having.

AI-Driven Switch Insights

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.

Simple Switch Provisioning

Configure and troubleshoot cloud-ready, ZTP-enabled EX Series switches with an activation code for true 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 that devices automatically inherit the appropriate configurations without any manual intervention.

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.

Switch Health Metrics

Ensure optimal switch operations with key health metrics such as firmware compliance, missing VLANs, and switch-access point (AP) affinity in multivendor environments, when paired with Juniper wireless APs.

Align Priorities with Network Insights

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.

Features:

Day 0/Day 1: Single-Click Activation and Autoprovisioning of EX Switches

One-Step, Simplified Onboarding. With true plug-and-play capabilities, the wired switches can be onboarded by the cloud with a single activation code. Network admins can get visibility into switch metrics and service levels for wired devices within a few minutes.

Existing (“brownfield”) EX deployments can take advantage of Wired Assurance as well, once adopted to the cloud.

Configurations Models. Enable consistent configurations via global templates through the cloud with the flexibility to configure specific switch and site attributes. Dynamic port profiles for colorless ports add another dimension of plug-and-play, where the Juniper Mist cloud can automatically detect the type of device plugged into the switch and apply the relevant port profiles. This helps to drive consistency and commonality across a number of sites, while streamlining bulk deployment rollouts.

AI-Driven Campus Fabric with Juniper Mist Cloud

Wired Assurance brings cloud management and Mist AI to campus fabric. It sets a new standard, moving away from traditional network management towards AI-driven operations, while delivering better experiences to connected devices.

Device, Port, and Interface Profiles

Port profiles provide a convenient way to manually or automatically provision switch interfaces. For the static provisioning of color ports, users can manually assign profiles to specific port ranges and odd/even ports. Dynamic port profiles allow users to simply plug the client device into any port. Port profiles and policies that have been configured by users can be automatically applied to wired devices (access point, corporate device, IoT device, and others.) based on LLDP, RADIUS name, or manufacturer OUI attributes.

Open APIs for Third-Party Integrations

Proactively monitor the network with the power of 100% programmable APIs for fully automated activation, onboarding, and configuration. Juniper Mist APIs are open and seamlessly integrate with third-party systems like ServiceNow and Splunk, which support APIs for automated ticketing, troubleshooting, and more.

Day 2 and Beyond: AI-Driven Operations

Wired Service Level Expectations (SLEs)

Get operational visibility into the wired experience with SLEs for Juniper EX and QFX Switches. Enforce throughput, successful connects, and switch health with pre- and post-connection performance metrics. Pre-connection shows the number and time of successful connects and authentication, while post-connection measures throughput and detects STP loops, interface errors and congestion—all in one dashboard. SLEs help to measure and manage networks for simplified troubleshooting and proactive anomaly detection.

AI-Driven Switch Insights

Know exactly how Juniper EX and QFX Switches are performing with detailed device-level switch metrics and insights such as CPU, memory utilization, and virtual chassis status, You can also see metrics down to the port level, including bytes transferred, traffic utilization, and power draw. You’ll receive performance series data and real-time status data for connected endpoints. Wired Assurance also logs and correlates switch events, like configuration changes, firmware updates, and system alerts. When admins hover over switch ports on the management interface, status details pop up about wired clients, access points, and connectivity, such as connected speed, PoE status, and throughput.

Wired Client Health Metrics

See an inventory of switches and wired devices in a list, topology, or location view. Wired Assurance ensures optimal network operations with key health metrics, such as switch firmware compliance, switch AP affinity, PoE compliance, and missing VLANs. These metrics are available for multivendor environments across third-party wired switches with a Juniper access point and Marvis license. The addition of BPDU Guard and MAC limit hit error identification enhances the ease of administrating port security at scale.

Marvis Virtual Network Assistant

Marvis complements Wired Assurance and takes operations towards The Self-Driving Network™ with simplified troubleshooting and performance analysis for helpdesk staff and network administrators. Simply ask a question in natural language and get actionable insights. Marvis brings proactive anomaly detection into the SLE dashboard so users know when there are deviations from established baselines. And with Marvis Actions, users get proactive recommendations for wired issues such as missing VLANs, bad cables, port negotiation mismatches, persistently failing clients, and detection of L2 loops.
