Mist, the pioneer in self-learning networks powered-by artificial intelligence, today announced that the company has been recognized as a Visionary in the first-ever Gartner, Inc. 2018 Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Worldwide.

“We are proud to be acknowledged by Gartner as a Visionary in their first-ever Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Worldwide,” said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at Mist. “Mist has distinguished itself in the industry with the first AI-driven WLAN that virtualizes the indoor experience. Our patented virtual beacon technology, combined with machine learning in the cloud and open APIs, makes high accuracy indoor location easy to deploy and operate. In addition, Mist integrates BLE engagement and asset location with Wi-Fi in a common, converged infrastructure, making indoor location cost effective to deploy and scale.”

According to the report, “Indoor location services is an important component of any asset tracking solution. We have historically seen clients inquiring about location solutions in vertical markets such as healthcare or retail for line-of-business assets, but in a 2017 customer reference survey, we saw 41% of respondents also using the technology to track enterprise IT assets such as laptops and tablets. In our 2017 customer reference survey, we also found that 85% of enterprises had more than one location project and 76% of respondents used the location information for more than one application.”

Mist Systems was also included as a Visionary in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure,2 which Mist believes, serves as a reflection of the company’s exponential growth and significant momentum it has experienced over the past year. Since launch, Mist has signed over 250 customers, including approximately 25 in the Fortune 500, and has quickly become one of the fastest growing vendors in the history of networking.
