Juniper pursues stated AI 'vision' with release of new solutions

By

Network vendor Juniper Networks has announced several new solutions in a move it says further executes on it’s vision of end-to-end AI-driven automation, insight and actions from client-to-cloud.

Less than two months after closing the acquisition of 128 Technology, Juniper said on Thursday it has added WAN Assurance and the Marvis Virtual Network Assistant - both driven by Mist AI - to the Session Smart networks portfolio, as well as enhancing the deployment and management of the SRX secure branch gateway using Mist AI.

Additionally, in the wired/wireless access space, Juniper says it has also added a new cloud-native EX switching platform driven by Mist AI.

“By continuing to expand the Juniper campus and branch portfolio and bringing it all under a common Mist AI umbrella, customers benefit from fully integrated AIOps, security and troubleshooting across the WLAN, LAN and WAN for lower costs and optimized end-user experiences,” Juniper said.

“Juniper is consistently recognised for our experience-first approach to networking, where AI-driven automation, insight and actions simplify operator experiences and optimise end-user experiences from client-to-cloud,” said Jeff Aaron, VP Enterprise Product Marketing.

“These latest product enhancements underscore our sustained commitment to executing on this vision, as well as our unique ability to rapidly deliver new solutions that drive real value to both customers and partners.”    

The latest additions to Juniper’s AI-driven enterprise include:

  • WAN Assurance and Marvis Virtual Network Assistant (VNA) for Session Smart SD-WAN. Ingesting telemetry data from Session Smart Routers into the Mist AI engine enables customers to set, monitor and enforce service levels across the WAN, proactively detect anomalies and gain enhanced insight into WAN conditions to assure optimal user experiences. In addition, the Marvis VNA (driven by Mist AI) can troubleshoot Session Smart SD-WAN environments using natural language queries and take proactive actions to correct issues before they impact the user experience. By adding AIOps to the already differentiated capabilities of the Session Smart SD-WAN solution, Juniper offers the most unique SD-WAN product on the market, focused on delivering the best user experiences.
  • Enhanced SRX operations driven by Mist AI. The SRX Series of secure branch gateways can now be onboarded and configured using Mist AI and the cloud. With zero touch provisioning (ZTP) and automated workflows, Juniper simplifies deployment of these devices. Additionally, Juniper customers can now perform simple branch router and secure connectivity configuration functions via the same platform as wired and wireless access, which streamlines operations, lowers costs and minimizes headaches.
  • New EX4400 secure access switch. The latest addition to the EX Series portfolio is optimized for the cloud with best-in-class security and AIOps. The EX4400 enables IT teams to seamlessly design an EVPN-VXLAN network fabric that extends from the data center to the campus core, distribution and access layers, coupled with important security capabilities such as MACsec AES256 and standards-based microsegmentation using group-based policies (GBP). By leveraging Mist AI, the EX4400 (like all EX access switches) makes it easy to set up and manage wired access networks and troubleshoot “needle in haystack” problems like misconfigured VLANs and bad cables.
