Wired Access

In the world of wired switches, “enterprise-grade” rarely goes hand in hand with “ease of use”.  Until now.  Juniper access switches, born in the cloud and driven by Mist AI, deliver the performance and scale you expect from Juniper with zero touch provisioning, campus fabric, proactive troubleshooting, and self-driving automation for ongoing operational simplicity. 

When combined with Juniper’s wireless access and SD-WAN solutions, also driven by Mist AI, you get end-to-end automation, insights, and actions for the best end user experiences from client to cloud.

How Juniper can help

Juniper is a recognized leader in wired access with a wide array of hardware platforms operated via the cloud and Mist AI.  With the EX Series switches it is easy to setup and manage network fabrics, apply robust policies, cost effectively scale, and troubleshoot “needle in haystack” problems like misconfigured VLANs and bad cables.  

AI-driven switching for the best experiences

Provision, deploy and operate Juniper EX Series access switches from the Juniper Mist cloud. Wired Assurance and Marvis Virtual Network Assistant apply the power of Mist  AI using streaming telemetry from EX switches to enable simple operations, rapid Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), and the best visibility into device experiences.

Cloud-ready, high-performance switches

Juniper’s EX Series access switches deliver enterprise-grade performance to meet all your business requirements and technical needs. They offer a robust feature set, including multigigabit rates (1/2.5/5/10GbE), Power over Ethernet (PoE up to 90W), MACsec, and cloud-readiness (from Day 0 to Day 2+), to name a few.

Simplified management with scalable campus fabrics

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

Wired and wireless, better together

Power the network edge with unified wired and wireless access solution unified under a common cloud and AI umbrella.  With event correlation across domains, end-to-end service levels, and integrated insight using the Marvis Virtual Network Assistant, it has never been easier or more cost effective to manage a combined wired/wireless infrastructure.

Security that starts at the network

Risk Profiling driven by Mist AI brings Juniper Connected Security to the distributed access network edge providing deep network visibility and enabling policy enforcement at every point of connection.
