Key Components

Customizable Wi-Fi Service Levels

Set, monitor, and enforce Service Level Expectations (SLE) for key Wi-Fi performance metrics like throughput, capacity, roaming, uptime, and WAN.  Provide predictive recommendations to avoid or fix problems.

AI-Driven Radio Resource Management

Unlike other solutions, Mist uses data science and cumulative SLE performance to learn and better optimize radio settings to assure performance, while also instantaneously adapting to intermittent outside interference. The AI-driven RRM will take coverage and capacity anomalies based on client experience (SLE metrics) and proactively feed this into the RRM decisions so that the RF planning continues to improve and adapt in changing environments that often occur in today’s digital workplaces.

Root Cause Identification in One Click

Proactively identify and fix the root causes of problems using Mist’s Proactive Analytics and Correlation Engine (PACE).

Real-time User State Information

Dynamically capture packets the moment an event occurs; Rewind to see any user’s state at any point in time.

100% Programmable via Open APIs

The Mist platform is 100% programmable using open APIs for full automation and/or seamless integration with complementary products.

Simple Resource Assignment and Prioritization

Say goodbye to the hassles of VLANs and ACLs. With WxLAN, Mist lets you assign and prioritize network resources (e.g. servers and printers) to Wi-Fi users with the click of a mouse or via pre-assigned policies. WxLAN automatically classifies users, mobiles and IoT devices to secure and prioritize traffic.

Guest Wi-Fi

Mist provides the industry’s most scalable guest access solution with flexible options including: multiple language support, customizable branding, social login, external captive portal integration, AAA/RADIUS integration. It also has the unique capability of offering the Personal WLAN extension that enables secure encrypted segmentation, without the need for VLANs. Guest traffic can either be locally bridged, tied to a dedicated guest ethernet port, or tunneled to a centralized concentrator from the access points.
