Juniper Networks has upgraded its cloud-based administration platform and launched a brand new swap household for campus and department networks.
On the administration aspect, Juniper says the purpose is to simplify community operations for organizations with a mixture of campus, department, micro-site, and remote-worker settings, and it’s doing that by including options to its Mist AI/ML cloud-based administration platform and its Marvis digital community assistant.
Mavis troubleshooting options, Home windows consumer
Juniper has added a Home windows consumer for the Mavis assistant to assemble and go alongside information about Home windows units so Mist AI can detect consumer points and advocate remediations, Jeff Aaron vp of Enterprise Advertising and marketing at Juniper wrote in a weblog in regards to the new options.
Juniper additionally added DHCP Failure Scopes, a device to pinpoint the supply of switching points by figuring out whether or not they’re on the DHCP server, a specific VLAN, or a consumer.
One other function, Wired Authentication, faucets into Juniper community routers and switches for telemetry information that measures community efficiency and identifies units and customers that fail to authenticate constantly on wired units. The thought is to offer directors the power to establish and block these units and customers, Aaron said.
As a part of Juniper Wi-Fi Assurance, which measures efficiency and repair ranges on wi-fi networks, the corporate has added the power to map the areas of entry factors with out utilizing exterior applied sciences resembling GPS. “Using 802.11mc Spherical Journey Time (RTT) and Tremendous Time Measurement (FTM), this function will enhance accuracy for our location companies by calculating distance between APs and mechanically locations Juniper APs on a mesh map,” Aaron said. “We all know that correct AP placement and indoor location companies are vital to optimizing the consumer expertise; customers anticipate high-performing wi-fi networks, and, with this new function, our clients can troubleshoot sooner and extra precisely earlier than their customers expertise an issue.”
New EX4100 swap
Mist and its new options are all baked into the brand new EX4100 Sequence swap, which is geared toward enterprise campus and department access-layer deployments. It’s a 1U, 376Gbps capability machine and is available in 24 and 48 port configurations. It provides MACsec AES256 encryption, in addition to flow-based telemetry to detect and mitigate safety threats, Aaron said.
Just like the EX4400 launched final 12 months, the EX4100 extends the power to design and construct EVPN-VXLAN community materials that reach from the information heart to the campus core, distribution, and entry layers, Aaron said.
