The Mist Learning WLAN
The Mist Cloud
The Mist cloud is the first truly new approach to wireless in nearly a decade — applying machine learning, data science and the latest cloud technologies to deliver a smart, scalable solution that optimizes the wireless experience (for both the user and IT administrator).
- Micro-services for SaaS agility (i.e., fast, risk free changes)
- Containers ensure portability and fault tolerance
- Big data collection / analysis from every wireless user
- Built using modern cloud elements like Storm, Spark, and Kafka for speed and reliability
SaaS agility for upgrades and patches
The Mist cloud is built on a micro-services architecture that brings the agility of SaaS to wireless networks. On-demand network upgrades and patches take minutes instead of months.
Machine learning for optimal user experiences
Mist’s patent-pending machine learning algorithms adapt in real-time to changes in user, device, and application behavior. This ensures predictable and reliable Wi-Fi and enables accurate Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) location-based services.
Machine learning for proactive IT operations
Mist’s machine learning algorithms monitor network trends in real-time and send alerts when service levels degrade below defined thresholds. Recommendations are provided for troubleshooting and/or proactive configuration changes.
Mist Access Points
Mist is leading the convergence of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® LE and IoT. Key to this are our enterprise-grade APs, which include the following unique features:
Best WiFi and Bluetooth® LE performance
In addition to delivering the best Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 range and performance, Mist APs have a dynamic vBLE 16 antenna array for the industry’s most accurate location services.
Data collection, analysis and enforcement
All Mist APs have extra radios for collecting data and enforcing policies in conjunction with the Mist cloud, which is critical when doing analytics, machine learning, location services, and event correlation.
A single, enterprise-grade platform for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® LE, and IoT
Mist APs also have an expansion port for Internet of Things (IoT). This makes Mist APs a single, enterprise-class platform for all wireless connectivity options.
