The AI-Driven Enterprise Is Taking Hold – Here Are Three Proof Points

“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
– Warren Bennis

A lot can happen between a product’s inception and shipping that can derail an otherwise fantastic idea. Even after a product is “out the door,” how does one know if it will become a distinguished market leader or just another also-ran?

There is no way to know what the future has in store but here are three recent proof points about the long-term prospects for the Mist-Juniper AI-driven enterprise:

A Visionary in New Gartner Wired & Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure MQ

Mist Systems is pleased to announce that in the recently published 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure, Juniper Networks (Mist Systems) is recognized as a Visionary. We believe this is a huge validation of what Mist has accomplished in a short period of time with the company’s unique AI-driven WLAN platform, what Juniper has achieved in the past year with its EX switching platform and the power of combining the two solutions together into a unified wired/wireless access solution with a common AI engine. We encourage everyone to check out the new Gartner Magic Quadrant here.

Big Kudos from Mobility Field Day

The Gartner report comes fresh on the heels of a very successful Mobility Field Day. At the event, Mist showed the top industry influencers the latest product enhancements like AI-driven support, Marvis Actions, Wi-Fi 6 and Mist Edge. Below are some of our favorite tweets during #MFD4:

@MistSystems is nailing it so far. They have transitioned from past mantra of “AI! Buy it because of AI! And are actually SHOWING how the magic is applicable. It is refreshing. – Lee Badman

Other companies in the valley should sit up and pay attention to what @MistSystems is doing. – Jim Palmer

The innovation in @MIstSystems product is staggering. – Nigel Bowden

Customer Reviews

While it is great to get recognition from analysts and bloggers, we feel there’s is no substitute for positive feedback from actual end users. We believe Gartner Peer Insights is a good source for this as it is a moderated collection of technology product/service evaluations created by users themselves.

We are thrilled to announce that as of 22 September 2019, Mist Systems’s wireless access points have a 4.9 out of 5 rating for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure market, based on 26 total ratings on Gartner Peer Insights. Juniper Networks (Mist Systems) was recently named a April 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice as one of the “Best Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure vendors of 2019.” In fact, we have the highest ratings of any of the Customers’ Choice vendors. We believe these reviews speak for themselves, the Mist-Juniper solution is consistently distinguished by customers for bringing automation and insight to IT operations.

Our customers include top universities, stores, hospitals and resorts who are using wireless to make a real difference in the lives of their employees, customers, patients and guests. The Orlando VA Medical Center shared how AI-powered location services and Wi-Fi boosts patient and visitor satisfaction, while the IT team at Dartmouth College shared how Dartmouth College improved its campus wide Wi-Fi.

Today’s visionaries are tomorrow’s leaders. As Mist-Juniper continues to operate with a world-class vision, stay tuned for more proof points showing that we are on our way to leading the new era of AI-driven networking.
