Cradlepoint and Juniper Networks Announce Partnership To Bring 5G Diversity to AI-Driven Networks 

Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, today announced a partnership with Juniper Networks, a leader in secure AI-driven networks, to bring 5G diversity to Juniper’s campus and branch portfolio. By combining Juniper’s leading wired access, wireless access and SD-WAN solutions driven by Mist AI with the Cradlepoint 5G portfolio, shared customers and partners have even more options to reliably connect to remote locations, with added insight for better management and ongoing troubleshooting.  

Dependable network connectivity that extends both within and outside the enterprise is essential to enable the new future of work. As organizations continue to find ways to innovate, 5G has proven to be effective in enabling wireless WAN use cases. This will be particularly beneficial within certain markets, like the retail space, where LTE and 5G wireless becomes the preferred form of connectivity, enabling a flexible and unified approach to connecting people, places and things anywhere. For example, with 5G, retailers can offer curbside pickup or set up temporary pop-up networks to get instant and dependable connectivity where wired WAN connectivity is not an option.   

Through this partnership, Cradlepoint and Juniper provide customers with a proven solution for wireless LAN and WAN use cases that leverage 5G. Additionally, by integrating Mist AI and with Cradlepoint’s NetCloud™ (via open cloud APIs), organizations can receive better end-to-end network visibility, enhanced business continuity and the essential insight needed to maximize end-to-end experiences. 

As part of the partnership, the two companies have verified interoperability of the following products and functionality:   

  • Cradlepoint 5G routers and adapters and NetCloud™ 
  • Juniper Mist Wireless Assurance and Indoor Location Services and Juniper Wireless Access Points
  • Juniper Mist Wired Assurance Service and EX access switches 
  • Juniper Mist WAN Assurance, SRX Secure Services Gateways and Session Smart Routers    
  • Marvis, Juniper’s virtual network assistant that leverages Mist AI to provide proactive recommendations and self-driving network operations plus unsurpassed insight via Natural Language Processing (NLP) and a conversational interface
