Mist has announced a collaboration with Juniper Networks to integrate the Mist Learning WLAN with Juniper’s Contrail SD-WAN solution.
By combining the LAN, Wireless LAN, and WAN solutions, customers will obtain visibility and insight into their wired and wireless network performance, as well as monitoring capabilities. The joint solution uses advanced artificial intelligence to remediate issues in the wired and wireless network before they impact users, enabling users to experience consistent levels of performance and reliability regardless of how and where they connect.
Enterprise networks today host a large number of WiFi connected users and devices, as well as applications that are deployed in public, private and multicloud environments. Users demand the same seamless experience regardless of how they are connected, or where their applications reside. Additionally, organizations are looking to deploy location-based services to enhance user experience and monetize value-added services. The Juniper and Mist solution combines network intelligence with artificial intelligence and deep-learning insights to deliver a remarkable user experience through automation, and it enables IT organizations to deploy new services that add more value to the network infrastructure.
Benefits of the combined Juniper Networks and Mist solution include:
- Predictable network access that is reliable and measurable with visibility into the actual user experience;
- End-to-end insights across the wired and wireless networks (WLAN, LAN and WAN) that enable preemptive actions;
- Automation that saves time and money and eliminates manual errors; and
- Granular policies and experiences that are personalized to users and tied to real-time location.
“Network infrastructure has become more business critical than ever, yet it has never been harder to operate and manage,” said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at Mist. “We are pleased to work with Juniper to address this challenge by executing on a common vison of automating network operations through AI and leveraging open programmability to bring a DevOps approach to IT.”
“With the proliferation of connected devices, users and applications across disparate places in the network, Juniper Networks is excited to partner with Mist to simplify the automated network operations across the LAN, wireless LAN and WAN,” stated Michael Bushong, vice president of enterprise and cloud marketing at Juniper Networks. “Today’s announcement with Mist is a testament to Juniper’s relentless commitment to removing the most complex challenges that enterprises are facing when migrating to secure and automated multicloud environments.”
