Features + Benefits
Extension of Microservices to Customer Premises
For large campus networks, Edge provides seamless roaming through on-premises tunnel termination of traffic to and from access points.
Juniper Mist Edge extends virtual LANs (VLANs) to distributed branches and telecommuters to replace remote virtual private network (VPN) technology. Provides dynamic traffic segmentation for IoT devices. Split tunneling allows for guest access and corporate traffic.
High Availability and Clustering
Juniper Mist Edge supports an elastically scalable cluster (with options for backup clusters) composed of an unlimited number of nodes within a cluster.
The Edge cluster design for the tunneling microservice is guided by the aggregate capacity considerations for the number of access points, clients, and throughput expectations.
This service lets you make a seamless transition, moving from an existing centralized data plane with legacy controller architectures to the modern Juniper Mist microservices cloud, without affecting network design.
The Access Points leverage standards-based L2TPv3 technology to tunnel traffic to and from Juniper Mist Edge for selected WLANs. This capability gives you the network design flexibility to leverage a combination of distributed and centralized data planes, where needed, to meet your requirements.
