Mist Edge

Mist Edge extends our microservices architecture to the campus to bring agility and scale while enabling new applications at the edge.

Some microservices require specific network functions be handled on-premises, whether due to bandwidth, latency or architecture requirements. Mist Edge extends select microservices to the campus while using the Mist cloud and its distributed software architecture for scalable and resilient operations, management, troubleshooting, and analytics – all without the need for legacy wireless controllers.


Agility to develop and deploy new microservices rapidly

Scalable platform to meet demands of small to large campus

Simple to deploy and manage with zero-touch configuration and cloud management

Mist Edge Use Cases

  • Seamless roaming for large campus networks through on-premises tunnel termination of traffic to/from access points
  • Extending virtual LANs (VLANs) to distributed branches and telecommuters to replace remote virtual private network (VPN) technology
  • Split tunneling for guest access and corporate traffic
  • Dynamic traffic segmentation for IoT devices
