Why is Juniper acquiring Mist?
Mist has created a next-generation wireless networking solution that leverages modern cloud and AI technologies automation, insight, scale and agility. Adding Mist to its portfolio of products puts Juniper in an excellent position to go after the growing wireless network market with a “change the game” WLAN solution.
In addition, combining the Mist WLAN platform with Juniper’s wired multi-rate switching, SD-WAN and network security portfolio provides a full stack solution to meet enterprise needs, and lays the foundation for more comprehensive AI-driven IT infrastructures.
What are Juniper’s plans for Mist?
Both companies value the Mist name as a symbol of next generation networking – born in the modern cloud, with AI in the core. As a result, it is expected that Mist will continue to be run as a standalone business and brand under the Juniper umbrella for the foreseeable future.
Will there be any changes to current subscription licenses?
No – it is currently anticipated that customer license terms will remain unchanged and support, maintenance and software updates will continue as normal.
