What techniques have been employed for the Juno spacecraft to successfully transmit data packets back to Earth once she's in a polar orbit around Jupiter? Jupiter is a strong source of radio wavelength interference, at the same time it is of course also rather large distance away from the Earth (currently roughly 5.135 AU).

Please describe Juno's communication subsystem, its predicted efficacy, and any techniques in place to thwart against possible radio wavelength interference, direct line of sight occlusion, transmission carrier waves intersecting with Jupiter's enormous magnetosphere, and other possible reasons for loss of transmission, regardless the source. What levels of data redundancy will be in place (package repetition, multiple carrier wavelengths, e.t.c.), how will data transmissions be encoded (error detection and correction algorithms used), at what rate and orbital position will they be transmitted to help assure the success of this mission critical subsystem component?
If possible, please compare the predicted data transmission failure rates for Juno with observed failure rates from previous missions to Jupiter, what lessons have we learned by then and learned to build around them with Juno, making her more data transmission error resilient.
