“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.”
