WiFi as WAN

2 weeks ago

Hi Everyone, does someone knows if Juniper has a router that I can use "WiFi as WAN" like with a CraddlePoint.  I need to join a public SSID in a convention but I want to have my own router to build my internal LAN.  I prefer no to use CraddlePoint as I will be using a Juniper switch and wants to keep the consistency.  Thank you

Juniper's brand new MPIM WiFi cards for its 'Secure Routers' based on SRX Series Branch Firewalls don't support that.

I'd look into the Mist Systems a Juniper Networks Company to see fi that is something they can do on their dedicated APs can do it.

Mist "only" sell AP's, they cannot act as a wireless client - and the new wifi mPIM is also only able to operate in AP mode.

 

You cannot avoid getting an external device to bridge the wifi connection to an ethernet port.

Ah thanks for that clarification there @jonashauge, I stand corrected with Mist then.

Answer is a no across the board then.

The tables on this data page show the models that support the LTE card on the SRX series.

Hi maraica, Steve's post is about LTE, although that's technically a WAN connection too, thought that's cellular versus WLAN that you are looking for. https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/release-independent/junos/topics/topic-map/mpim-lte.html OR does it fit your requirement? Was curious about your use-case to explore this a bit more for you. Hope this helps.

Yes, LTE is cellular and that is what Cradlepoint devices are providing on the WAN side as requested in the post.

Hmm thanks Steve, I liked your input and will rest my case if that fits the requirement Smiley Happy. Just that I understood the "Wifi as WAN" feature from CraddlePoint as sharing the WAN from another AP or Wifi router as against LTE. Hence asked for the use-case. Hope this helps.
