WAN Service-Level Expectations (SLEs)

Get operational visibility into the WAN experience with SLEs for Juniper SRX Series Gateways. Measure impact of gateway health, WAN link health on end user experience. WAN Link Health SLE that is affected by issues such congestion, IPSec and ISP availability gives us the insights into how any of the above factors affect a user or an application. Juniper Mist SLE dashboard helps identify root cause proactively and isolate “needle-in-a-haystack” problems. Leveraging the APPQoE infrastructure – the Juniper Mist portal brings about real time performance for individual applications and SLE framework provides the root cause for sub-optimal application experience in a few clicks.

WAN Insights Driven by Mist AI

Know exactly how Juniper SRX Series Gateways are performing with detailed gateway metrics and insights down to the port level such as CPU, memory utilization, bytes transferred, traffic utilization, and power draw. WAN Assurance also logs gateway events, like configuration changes and system alerts Along with WAN utilization, IPSec Utilization insights help understand the amount of traffic sent over the tunnel vs local breakout. WAN Insights also provide application visibility on a per user as well as per app basis.

Marvis, the AI-Driven Virtual Network Assistant for WAN

Marvis transforms IT operations towards the self-driving network with simplified troubleshooting and performance analysis for helpdesk staff and network administrators. Simply ask a question in natural language and get actionable insights. Marvis brings proactive anomaly detection into the SLE dashboard so users know when there are deviations from established baselines. And with Marvis Actions, users get proactive recommendations for WAN issues such as MTU Mismatch, Bad Cables, WAN Link Issues.

The Marvis Conversational Interface service allows IT teams to quickly get to answers by simply posing questions to Marvis. Questions like, “why is my user’s video chat application experience bad?” can be directly queried. Temporal Entity Relationship Framework brings across co-relation from different entities (WAN, LAN, WLAN) of a network that could cause an application experience and provide the end user with the exact root cause for problem.

Additionally, Marvis Actions provide proactive recommendations to improve user experience issues.
