Overview:

The Juniper AP41 works in conjunction with the Juniper Mist cloud architecture to collect and analyze metadata in near real-time from all wireless clients. This enables rapid problem detection and root cause identification with predictive recommendations and proactive correction, helping businesses realize a Self-Driving network.

In addition, the AP41 has a dynamic vBLE 16-element antenna array for the industry’s most accurate and scalable location services, including Juniper User Engagement, Asset Visibility, and Contact Tracing. These location services operate without the need for battery-powered BLE beacons and manual calibration. With integrated IoT sensors and an interface port that can control analog/digital devices, the AP41 also enables advanced location-based use cases, such as door locking and camera control.

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 network makes Wi-Fi predictable, reliable, and measurable, offering unprecedented visibility into the user experience through the use of unique service-level expectation (SLE) metrics. Proactive, AI-driven automation and self-healing replace time-consuming manual tasks, lowering Wi-Fi operational costs and saving substantial time and money.

Juniper also brings enterprise-grade Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), and IoT together so businesses can increase the value of their wireless networks through personalized location services, such as wayfinding, proximity notifications, and asset location. With Juniper’s patented virtual BLE (vBLE) technology, no battery beacons or manual calibration are required.

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. It 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.

The Juniper Mist platform is 100% programmable, supporting open APIs. It enables full automation and seamless integration with complementary LAN, WAN, security, user engagement, and asset location solutions. The architecture enables you to consume wireless and location services in both a scalable and cost-effective manner.

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 AP41 Series comprises tri-radio 4x4 access points with maximum data rates of 1,730 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 800 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. The third radio functions as a network, location, and security sensor as well as a spectrum monitor. The AP41 Series is available with internal and external antenna models.

Unprecedented Insight and Action

A dedicated dual-band radio collects data for Juniper’s patentpending Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE), which relies on 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 that problems don’t occur or are fixed as quickly as possible if they do.

Network and Business Insights

Wi-Fi Assurance includes a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, enabling you to simplify the process of extracting network insights from data and analytics across your enterprise. Review your network throughput peaks to properly align your support resources. To extend these capabilities to third-party* network elements, consume up to one year* of data, and gain the option to generate customized* reports, the Juniper Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.

Automatic RF optimization

Juniper’s Radio Resource Management (RRM) 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. A learning algorithm uses hysteresis on a 24-hour window to conduct a site-wide rebalancing for optimal channel and power assignment.

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 AP41 Series automatically connects to the Juniper Mist cloud, downloads its AP 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’s Wireless Assurance, User Engagement, and Asset Visibility service includes a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, from which you can extract network insights across your enterprise. For enterprises that need to extend the data timeline past 30 days or access third-party* solutions for customized reporting, the Juniper Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.

Dynamic Debugging

Constantly monitor services running on the AP41 Series 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.

High-Accuracy Indoor Location

The AP41 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 to accurately detect distance and location with 1-3 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.

Patented VBLE Technology

In addition to the industry-leading Wi-Fi technology at the heart of the AP43 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.
