Mist Platform

Mist built the first AI-driven platform to give modern businesses an intelligent solution for the digital era. Traditional WLAN solutions, which are more than a decade old and based on antiquated, monolithic architectures, lack the scale, reliability, performance, and agility they need to address today’s challenging and diverse enterprise needs. Meanwhile, IT departments today are looking for a single, cohesive approach for managing wired and wireless networks. What’s needed is a solution that can simplify and automate operations and end-to-end troubleshooting, ultimately evolving into the Self-Driving Network™.

The Mist platform addresses both of these challenges. Designed from the ground up to meet the stringent networking needs of the modern cloud and smart-device era, Mist delivers unique capabilities for the wired and wireless LAN.

Marvis, an integrated AI engine.

We built an AI engine right into the Mist platform for unique client-level insight, rapid wired and wireless troubleshooting, trending analysis, anomaly detection and proactive problem remediation. These capabilities simplify IT operations without requiring expensive overlay sensors, data collector hardware, or extra software.

Virtual BLE for indoor location.

Patented dynamic vBLE 16 antenna array and unsupervised machine learning in Mist APs eliminate the need for battery powered BLE beacons and manual calibration. This means no more headaches as you deploy and maintain high-value location services such as wayfinding, asset tracking, and proximity notifications.

Wired and wireless assurance.

Set, monitor, and enforce Service Level Expectations (SLE) for key wired and wireless performance metrics such as throughput, capacity, roaming, and uptime. Provide predictive recommendations to avoid or fix problems in a rapid manner.

Modern microservices cloud.

Mist Cloud is built on a modern microservices architecture that brings the agility of SaaS to networks. On-demand network upgrades and patches take minutes instead of months, with new features rolled out almost weekly with low risk.

Why Mist?

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 and easy integration with third-party or in-house applications.
  • 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.
