Enterprise-grade Bluetooth® LE
Mist built the first AI-driven wireless platform, designed specifically for the Smart Device Era. Mist’s Learning Wireless LAN makes Wi-Fi predictable, reliable and measurable by providing unprecedented visibility into the user experience and by replacing time consuming manual IT tasks with proactive automation. In addition, Mist is the first vendor to bring Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® LE and IoT together to deliver personalized, location-based wireless services without requiring battery-powered beacons.
The Mist Learning WLAN consists of the following components:
The Mist Cloud
All wireless deployment, setup, operations, and insight are handled via the Mist cloud, which was designed to provide unprecedented visibility and control at web scale. A microservices architecture provides maximum agility when rolling out new features/services.
The Mist AP Family
The AP21, AP41, and AP61 are high performance, enterprise-grade Access Points for 802.11ac Wave 2 Gigabit Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Low Energy. The Mist BT11 (detailed here), is an enterprise-grade Access Point exclusively for Bluetooth® Low Energy.
The Mist cloud, featuring a micro-services architecture,
and powered by Marvis AI
Mist uses patented technology and Machine Learning to ensure the highest location accuracy with ease of deployment and scale.
Let’s get virtual
Patented virtual Bluetooth® LE (vBLE) technology lets you deploy and move virtual beacons with the simple click of a mouse (or via APIs), eliminating the need for physical beacons.
The BT11 works with the Mist cloud to provide high accuracy enterprise grade Bluetooth® LE location services using virtual beacons
Machine learning eliminates manual calibration
Mist continuously collects data in real-time from all mobile devices to ensure accurate location estimates without the need for Bluetooth® LE site surveys.
Best location accuracy and performance
Dynamic vBLE 16 antenna elements in Mist APs plus machine learning in the Mist cloud ensure 1 to 3m for mobile devices, and in-room / zone level for Bluetooth® LE assets.
Monitor user visits and dwell times, with detailed drill down into specific zone traffic patterns and congestion points.
Mist gives you a real-time view of the RF environment from the mobile user’s perspective. This lets you detect coverage holes and other issues, even as users move around and their RF coverage patterns change.
Open APIs for easy integration
Mist offers a mobile SDK for iOS and Android with three types of APIs (vBLE beacon, indoor location, and zone analytics) for seamless integration with complementary products.
