Mist Expands Vision of Universal Standards-Based Indoor Location
Robust Wi-Fi platform leverages IoT, ultra-wideband, radar, LiDAR, ESL, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE to deliver more use cases with scale and accuracy
In February, Mist Systems, a Juniper Networks company and a leader in secure AI-driven networks, announced its new ecosystem partner integrations that leverage ultra-wideband, Wi-Fi radar (sensing), LiDAR, Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL) and batteryless Bluetooth LE tags to deliver advanced use cases for indoor location with high accuracy and exceptional scale. InnerSpace was named as its partner to enhance WiFi-based indoor location for its customers.
“We are excited to build on the previous success of our location solution, including placement as a visionary in the recently announced 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, with new use cases that leverage state-of-the-art ultra-wideband, Wi-Fi, LiDAR, ESL and Bluetooth LE technologies,” said Bob Friday, CTO of Mist Systems. “It takes a robust ecosystem to bring indoor location to stores, hotels, hospitals, campuses and other AI-driven enterprises, so we are excited to be working with the best vendors in the industry to make this a reality.”
Modernizing the Corporate Campus and Increasing Safety with Indoor Mapping
By leveraging machine learning technology in concert with pervasive Wi-Fi, BLE, UWB and/or LiDAR, one can provide sub-two-meter accuracy for the mapping, asset location and occupancy use cases. The partnership between InnerSpace and Juniper Mist enables high value enterprise applications for the corporate campus across real estate utilization, employee experiences, operations and security and safety. InnerSpace leverages the Mist SDK to transform any space into a Smart Building and can also provide public safety and first responders with enhanced situational awareness to identify the location of civilians in the event of emergencies.
“With Juniper’s Mist wireless solution rapidly expanding its footprint in public and private spaces, it integrates with our indoor location solutions to enable our shared companies to radically transform the corporate campus," said James Wu, CEO, InnerSpace. "Together, we will be able to offer companies the ability to fundamentally change their business with new customer and employee experiences, create new streams of revenue and to do so quickly and at scale."
