Wired Assurance

The Mist Cloud Services are transforming IT operations towards the intelligent self-driving network in the era of the AI-Driven Enterprise.

Mist Wired Assurance delivers simpler operations, shorter mean time to repair and better visibility into end-user experiences.

Mist Wired Assurance is a cloud service offering that delivers an unparalleled network experience for wired devices by transforming IT operations to shift from reactive troubleshooting to proactive remediation by turning insights into actions.

It brings visibility into wired experience and switch health assessment to the wired portfolio of Juniper EX Series Switches, in addition to IoT devices, access points, servers, printers, etc. The data is leveraged within the Mist cloud and AI engine to deliver simpler operations, shorter mean time to repair and better visibility into end-user experiences.

For insights, Wired Assurance leverages telemetry data from Juniper EX Series Switches to offer anomaly detection and identify when switch health is trending negatively. The complementary Marvis Virtual Network Assistant (with Marvis Actions) service simplifies troubleshooting and integrated helpdesk functions bringing self-driving actions to the network to automatically remediate issues. This new level of automation fundamentally transforms IT operations to go from reactive troubleshooting to proactive remediation.

The Mist services are 100% programmable with all functions (provisioning, monitoring, alerts) available through open APIs that enables you to integrate with your IT applications to automate your network and line of business operations.

Wired Service Level Expectations (SLEs)

Enforce SLEs for Juniper EX Series Switches with pre-/ post-connection performance metrics such as throughput, successful connects and switch health. Pre-connection shows the number and time of successful connects and authentication, while post-connection measures throughput, STP loops, interface errors and congestion—all with one simple click.

SLEs help to measure and manage networks proactively. It brings visibility to wired devices, such as Wi-Fi access points, IoT devices (door locks, cameras, displays, sensors, etc.), wired computers, printers, etc.

AI-Driven Switch Insights

Get switch insights down to the port level for detailed views of CPU, memory utilization, bytes transferred, traffic utilization and power draw. Receive performance series data along with real-time status data on the number of Mist APs and wireless endpoints connected. By hovering over the switch ports, connectivity details (connected speed, PoE status, and throughput) will show up. It also shows wired switch events to include configuration changes and system alerts.

Wired Clients

See a list view of all the wired clients from the Mist Cloud, such as IoT devices, cameras, laptops, access points, etc. connected to switch ports.

Accelerate Your Digital Transformation with Network Insights

Wired Assurance includes a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data which enables 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 3rd party network elements and the ability to consume up to one year of data, along with the option to generate customized reports, the Mist Premium Analytics service is available as an additional subscription.
