A highly scalable solution empowered with an AI-driven network management system
I use the solution to pull videos from buses in a bus terminus The bus drivers were not declaring ticket sales done on the bus. The solution helps us to know exactly how many tickets they've sold and how much money they've collected. It doesn't allow the drivers to steal money from the bus…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The solution is stable."
"The AI capabilities of Mist Wireless are superior to other OEMs."
"Juniper Mist offers valuable features like comprehensive network insight, granular policy control, fast device setup, strong security, and efficient SSL traffic management."
"With Mist, every Wednesday they roll out new features."
"You can easily monitor, manage, and cover all your IT equipment."
"The most valuable feature of Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) is the ability to troubleshoot ports on the network. Additionally, when there is an update on the APs they are able to reboot quickly reducing downtime. Other solutions have a longer downtime when updates are done."
"In terms of reporting, in terms of all the user reports, it's very rich."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is Marvis, the AI-driven network management system."
"The cost is the most valuable aspect of this solution."
"Natural language patching is an important feature."
"Multi PSK (Pre-shared Key) is a very good feature in the solution...Stability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten."
"AI is the most valuable feature."
"Ability to control the access points by groups."
"Mist AI and Cloud have definitely improved the functioning of our organization. The access to the Internet, including its speed and reliability, has significantly improved."
"AI-driven automation helps implement the solution quickly."
"It's really easy to provision and support. Those are its main features."
"Because it's Windows-based, it actually reports quite well. It reports everything you can think of on the Windows server and allows you to monitor anything. It's excellent for those in the Windows world as it's very good at it."
"SCOM has improved our organization by simplifying the monitoring process. The system tells you what the bi-weekly or monthly usage was and that enables us to report this information to the manager. It shows if there was a connectivity issue that needs to be fixed and it's easier to concentrate on what needs to get fixed. System errors, therefore, get fixed faster."
"This solution allows us to standardize all of the reports for monitoring the network, so it helps a lot for auditing purposes."
"The monitoring features are the most valuable. We have seen a major benefit from that so far."
"The advantages of SCOM are that it is definitely user friendly and a more appropriate solution for what we need."
"The solution's reporting engine has given me detailed information on which applications or services I've either failed or about to fail in terms of the predictive makeup on Azure cloud."
"This solution satisfies all of the requirements that we need for our Windows-based systems, so if you are using the Windows platform then this is an easy solution."
"Being able to make and customize management packs and send out notifications is very valuable."


"Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) could improve if the MIST platform had a built-in master key. This would be an advantage."
"The pricing should be made cheaper."
"The pricing is very high in the Indian market."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"Enrolling into the tool is a tedious process."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"The solution is expensive."
"Improving third-party integration is key for Juniper Mist's next release."
"Regarding opportunities for improvement in Mist, it is notable for its robust cloud portal and integration of artificial intelligence into various services, creating a highly efficient environment for work. However, a drawback lies in the cost associated with its WiFi offerings. With a pricing range of twelve hundred to fifteen hundred dollars for a single Access Point, exclusive of the subscription, it is acknowledged as a relatively expensive solution in the realm of WiFi services. Despite this drawback, the positive attributes of Mist make it a noteworthy option."
"If there's one thing I'd like to change, it's the pricing. They are quite expensive, but honestly, it's justified by the value they provide. However, for a simple Wi-Fi connectivity with basic security needs, there are alternatives in the market that offer comparable features at a more budget-friendly price."
"Sometimes it takes a lot of time for the access point to connect with the cloud."
"It would be beneficial to have support for the Chinese language."
"There could be more integration."
"There is no local support for Mist in Brazil."
"In future releases, they need to add some router models. Because currently, it supports only SSR and WAN routers. But adding other routers would be good."
"The solution doesn't provide mail notifications currently."
"The GI is difficult to work with and the reporting servers are also difficult."
"Direct integration with third-party tools, like ticketing systems, is lacking but would be beneficial."
"I would like to see them improve their network monitoring."
"The initial setup should be easier to complete."
"In terms of features that could be improved, I would say the agent integration into the operating system. We are having difficulties integrating Linux into some of the networking devices."
"It could use some system enhancements, such as better dashboards."
"There could be more integration of SIM in the solution."
"The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved."
