K-12: Transforming from
Classroom to Digital Learning

Boost student learning while reducing risk

As K-12 schools strive to transform from the traditional classroom learning environment to an active and more engaging digital learning environment, a predictable and reliable network is essential for enabling this change. An AI-driven network is critical to the success of this transformation. It brings insight into user experiences and turns these insights into proactive and automated actions, while accelerating problem resolution with the Mist Marvis Virtual Network Assistant. These automated actions deliver on the Self-Driving Network™ which helps the school’s IT teams to minimize time consuming and repetitive tasks, allowing them to focus on strategic projects and support the soaring number of IT and IoT devices.

The solution can also help you to reduce risk as students and faculty return to school by providing hot zone alerting, user journey information, and proximity tracing to help minimize any further exposure. The Mist AI powered Contact Tracing leverages AI-driven analytics, self-driving Wi-Fi, and patented virtual Bluetooth® LE (vBLE) technology to enable seamless and cost-effective deployment of mission-critical use cases at schools.

The integration of AI and cloud services for the network enable schools to deliver an unparalleled teaching and learning experience while minimizing the cost of deploying and operating the network.
