Automate wireless operations and offer innovative location-based services.
Wireless networks have never been more critical to business. And yet, most WLAN solutions were built before smartphones, the modern cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), and the latest wireless technologies even existed.
To give modern businesses a Wi-Fi solution that’s in sync with the digital era, Mist built the first AI-driven WLAN platform: the Mist Wireless LAN.
The Mist platform is the breakthrough, truly innovative approach to wireless that combines AI, machine learning, and data science with the latest cloud technologies. It delivers a smart, agile, and scalable solution that optimizes the wireless experience and brings insight into the network.
Mist Wireless LAN Platform
The Mist platform encompasses the following key elements.
Mist combines AI automation with microservices agility.
Delivers feature velocity with seamless upgrades that take minutes instead of months.
Provides full programmability via open APIs for proactive automation.
Adapts in real time to changes in user, device, and application behavior for predictable,
reliable Wi-Fi and accurate location services.
Monitors network trends in real time and sends alerts when service levels degrade.
Makes recommendations for troubleshooting and proactive configuration changes.
Some microservices require specific network functions that need to be handled on-premises, such as tunnel termination and VLAN tagging. Mist Edge extends select microservices to the campus while using the Mist cloud and its distributed software architecture for scalable, resilient operations, management, troubleshooting, and analytics.
Mist Access Points
Mist leads the convergence of Wi-Fi, BLE, and IoT with enterprise-grade access points. These products offer data collection, analysis, and policy enforcement, along with machine learning, location services, and event correlation. They also include an expansion port for IoT devices.
Superior Wi-Fi and BLE Performance
In addition to delivering unparalleled Wi-Fi range and performance, Mist access points have a dynamic vBLE 16-element antenna array for the industry’s most accurate and scalable location services. Models are available with 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) and 802.11ac Wave 2 radio technologies.
Data Collection, Analysis, and Enforcement
Mist access points are purpose-built to collect metadata for more than 150 states that allow the cloud-based AI engine to perform analytics, machine learning, location services, and event correlation. Access points incorporate a third radio for always-on security monitoring and troubleshooting.
Converged, Enterprise-Grade Platform
Mist access points include an IoT interface port to integrate and control IoT devices. This feature enables access points to bridge the physical, location, and connectivity realms, unlocking value from your network.
