AP43 Access Point
The Juniper AP43 high-performance Wi-Fi 6 ( 802.11ax) access point integrates patented virtual Bluetooth® LE (vBLE) and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities to deliver unprecedented user experiences.
The AP43 Series works in conjunction with the Juniper Mist Cloud Architecture driven by Mist AI to collect and analyze metadata in near real-time from all wireless clients. This enables rapid problem detection and root cause identification with predictive recommendations and proactive troubleshooting.
The AP43 Series has a dynamic vBLE 16-element antenna array for the industry’s most accurate and scalable location services, including user engagement, asset visibility, and contact tracing applications. This is achieved without the need for battery-powered BLE beacons and manual calibration. With integrated IoT sensors and an interface port that can control analog/digital devices, the AP43 Series also enables advanced location-based use cases, such as meeting room booking, door locking and camera control.

High-Performance Wi-Fi Access
The AP43 Series access points support tri-radio 4×4 802.11ax with maximum data rates of 2400 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 1148 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band.
The third radio functions as a network, location, and security sensor, a synthetic test client radio, as well as a spectrum monitor
AI for AX™
With the new features that 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) introduces, Juniper is applying its industry-leading AI platform to automate and optimize these features with its AI for AX™ capabilities.
We use AI to optimize basic service set (BSS) coloring, to improve data transmission scheduling within orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) and multi-user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO), and to assign clients to the best radio to boost overall network performance.
Automatic RF Optimization
Radio resource management (RRM) automates dynamic channel and power assignment, taking Wi-Fi and external sources of interference into account with its dedicated sensor radio.
The Mist AI engine continuously monitors the coverage and capacity service-level expectation (SLE) metrics to learn and optimize the RF environment.
Unprecedented Insight and Action
A dedicated dual-band third radio collects data for our patent-pending Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE).
The AP43 leverages machine learning to analyze user experience, correlate problems and automatically detect the root cause of problems.
Improved Battery Efficiency for IoT Devices
By incorporating the 802.11ax target wake time (TWT) capability and Bluetooth 5.0, battery life for IoT devices can be extended as new IoT devices enter the network.
Dynamic Packet Capture
The Juniper Mist platform automatically captures packets and streams them to the cloud when major issues are detected.
This capability saves IT time and effort and eliminates the need for truck rolls with sniffers to reproduce and capture data for troubleshooting.
Effortless, Cloud-Based Setup and Updates
The AP43 Series automatically connects to the Juniper Mist cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network.
Firmware updates are retrieved and installed automatically, ensuring that the network is always up to date with new features, bug fixes, and security updates.
Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance, User Engagement and Asset Visibility services include a base analytics capability for analyzing up to 30 days of data, simplifying the process of extracting network insights from data and analytics across your enterprise to properly align your support resources or introduce enhanced premium services.
High-Accuracy Indoor Location
The AP43 Series has a dynamic 16-element Virtual Bluetooth LE (vBLE) antenna array controlled from the Juniper Mist cloud to provide turn-by-turn location services.
This enables use cases like asset location, wayfinding, proximity messaging, and various contract tracing/social distancing use cases without the need for additional hardware (e.g. battery-powered beacons). Passive antennas enhance the power of a single transmitter and produce directional beams to accurately detect distance and location with accuracy of 1–3 meters.
