Juniper among 'Best Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure Vendors of 2019'
Earlier this year Juniper Networks was also recognized by Gartner as one of the “Best Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure vendors of 2019". Mist Systems introduced the world’s first AI-driven virtual network assistant, Marvis, which uses Natural Language Processing to provide unprecedented insight into the Wi-Fi experience and prescriptive guidance for fast troubleshooting.
Marvis complements other innovations from Mist, including wired/wireless service levels, dynamic packet capture, AI-driven support, anomaly detection and user engagement, using patented virtual Bluetooth™ LE.
Improving IT operations for AI-driven enterprises
Juniper Networks acquired Mist to round out the company’s enterprise portfolio and lay a foundation for end-to-end AI-driven automation and insight. This convergence of Mist AI innovations with Juniper’s robust portfolio of switching, routing and security solutions, is beneficial because it ultimately improves IT operations for AI-driven enterprises.
The Mist-Juniper solution is continuing to gain traction amongst top companies worldwide, with over 300 percent year-over-year growth and 3 of the Fortune 10 as customers.
