By Chrissie Cluney April 05, 2019

Mist Systems is a company that specializes in self-learning networks powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). For the second year in a row, this company has been recognized as a Visionary in the Gartner, Inc. in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global report

This distinction arrives on the heels of a successful year for Mist Systems. In 2018, the company experienced over 400 percent growth in sales and tripled in size, with new personnel throughout North America, Europe, Middle East, Japan, Australia and India. 

“We are excited to be acknowledged by Gartner as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global for the second consecutive year,” said Jeff Aaron, VP, Marketing, Mist Systems. “Since inception, Mist’s vision has been to bring new and amazing wireless experiences to global organizations leveraging the first AI-driven Wireless LAN (WLAN). As location services are critical to the wireless network of the future, we are pleased to be distinguished by customers, partners and analysts alike as a visionary in this key area.”

The Gartner report, ‘Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global, was written by Tim Zimmerman, “By 2022, 65 percent of enterprises will require indoor location asset tracking (both people and equipment) to be part of all access layer infrastructure communication decisions (up from less than 10 percent today),” said the report.

According to the report does the location service market continue to evolve? The report continues, “The location service market continues to evolve as clients have begun to look at the larger picture for how location is being used or is needed within their organization. We are seeing cross-functional teams aggregate their location requirements and realize the ability to expand existing solutions to provide additional business value. In our customer reference survey, 77 percent of respondents reported that they have multiple location use cases. It is important to realize that there are many different location technologies needed to solve the diverse location requirements across the business.”

Mist Systems also continues to acquire major customers in almost every industry with production deployments across two of the Fortune 10, approximately 20 of the Fortune 500, seven of the top 40 retailers, four of the top 10 social media/online collaboration companies, and one of the top three largest airlines. Sample Mist customers include Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin, the Orlando VA Medical Center and Dartmouth College.

These companies leverage Mist Systems’ technology to deliver predictable and reliable Wi-Fi. These companies also use their simplified troubleshooting using the world’s first AI-driven network assistant, location-based engagement, asset location and analytics.
