Wired Access

It’s typically been a challenge to find both enterprise-grade quality and ease of use in a single Ethernet switching platform. Not anymore.

Juniper access switches, driven by Mist AI™, are fully deployable and manageable in the cloud from a single, unified cloud interface. They combine the performance, scale, and campus fabric networking advantages you expect from Juniper with the operational simplicity of zero-touch provisioning, proactive troubleshooting, and self-driving automation. When you pair our access switches with Juniper AI-driven wireless access and SD-WAN solutions, you get end-to-end automation and actionable insights you can use to create optimum experiences, from client to cloud.

How Juniper can help

Juniper is a recognized leader in wired campus and data center access switching with a variety of hardware platforms that are manageable from the cloud using Mist AI. We make it easy to set up and manage network fabrics, apply robust policies, cost-effectively scale, and troubleshoot needle-in-a-haystack problems such as misconfigured virtual LANs (VLANs) and bad cables. 

AI-driven switching

Provision, deploy, and operate EX Series access switches from the Juniper Mist Cloud. Our Wired Assurance service and Marvis Virtual Network Assistant use streaming telemetry from EX Series Switches to simplify operations, accelerate mean time to repair (MTTR), and provide real-time visibility into device experiences.

High-performance, cloud-ready

A robust EX Series feature set includes multigigabit rates (1GbE, 2.5GbE, 5GbE, and 10GbE), Power over Ethernet (PoE) up to 90W, MACsec encryption, and cloud-readiness from Day 0 to Day 2+.

Scalable campus fabrics

Reduce network complexities while addressing scalability by managing multiple devices as one. Design end-to-end campus fabric architectures using our Virtual Chassis technology or open, standards-based EVPN-VXLAN to avoid costly rip-and-replace upgrades.

Powerful network edge

Unify wired and wireless access under a common cloud-based, AI-driven management umbrella. With event correlation across domains, end-to-end service level support, and integrated insight using the Marvis Virtual Network Assistant, it’s never been easier or more cost-effective to operate a wired/wireless access infrastructure.

Network-integrated security

Risk profiling driven by Mist AI brings Juniper Connected Security to the distributed access network edge. You get deep network visibility, threat awareness, and policy enforcement at every point of connection.
