Juniper Networks announced the extension of AI-fueled insights to branch networks and WAN with the help of Juniper Mist WAN assurance, a new cloud based service. The company has also launched a conversational interface connected to networking processes and operations. This helps end-users or IT teams to easily interact with Juniper’s virtual network assistant Marvis. The new functionalities are a part of Juniper’s focus on AI-fueled operations.
Juniper and Mist have already deployed AI-based networking operations to enterprises with wired, Wi-Fi, and security measures. WAN’s addition will enable Juniper to ensure end-to-end AI-powered visibility to clients. The main factor behind the increased use of AI is to gradually switch the focus from application and network behavior to real UX.
