Overview:

The wall plate AP12 access point driven by Mist AI automates network operations and boosts Wi-Fi performance. It’s optimized for environments that require easy, flexible deployment and the simultaneous support of multiple devices. It supports an aggregate data rate up to 1.8 Gbps concurrently on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios. Managed by Juniper Mist™ Cloud Architecture, the AP12 access point delivers unprecedented user experiences at a lower cost for branch office, remote worker, school dormitory, and hotel room 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 with unprecedented visibility into the user experience through customizable service level expectation (SLE) metrics. Time-consuming manual IT tasks are replaced with AI-driven proactive automation and self-healing, lowering Wi-Fi operational costs and saving substantial time and money.

All operations are managed via our open and programmable microservices architecture, which delivers maximum scalability and performance while also bringing DevOps agility to wireless networking and location services.

The Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture

Juniper’s Mist AI leverages a cloud-native microservices architecture that delivers unparalleled agility, scale, and resiliency to your network. An AI engine lowers OpEx and delivers insights by using data science to analyze large amounts of rich metadata collected from 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 AP12 access point is a tri-radio 2x2:2SS 802.11ax access point with maximum data rates of 1,200 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 575 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. The integrated 3rd radio functions as a network, location, and security sensor, a synthetic test client radio, as well as a spectrum monitor.

By adding 802.11ax Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO), and BSS Coloring technologies, performance is boosted to unprecedented levels to support new bandwidthhungry 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 has grown more complex. Juniper is applying its industry-leading Mist AI for AX technology to automate these features, optimize BSS Coloring, improve data transmission scheduling within OFDMA and MU-MIMO, and assign clients to the best radio to boost overall network performance.

Boosts Spectral Efficiency

OFDMA improves spectral efficiency so that an increasing density of devices can be supported on the network. This is especially helpful as IoT devices join the network; they use smaller data packets than mobile devices, which increases network load and contention. Additionally, BSS Coloring improves the coexistence of overlapping BSSs and allows spatial reuse within channels by reducing packet collisions. This helps you improve spectral efficiency for dense networks in which channel reuse is increasing.

Automatic RF optimization

Radio Resource Management automates dynamic channel and power assignment, taking Wi-Fi and external sources of interference into account with its dedicated sensor radio. The AI engine continuously monitors coverage and capacity SLE metrics to learn and optimize the RF environment. The 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 experience, 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.

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 AP12 access point 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

Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance, User Engagement, and Asset Tracking 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 thirdparty data and would like the option of customized reports, the Juniper Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.

Improves Battery Efficiency for IoT Devices

By incorporating the 802.11ax target wake time (TWT) capability and Bluetooth 5.0, AP32 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 AP12 model 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.
