Mist Systems Provides Strategic Solutions to Support Contact Tracing

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent release, Mist Systems, a company creating secure AI-driven networks, announced several new solutions designed to assist enterprises bringing employees, customers and guests back onsite after regional and global stay-at-home restrictions are lifted. The company is reportedly offering proximity tracing, journey mapping and hot zone alerting as part of strategic contact tracing and social distancing initiatives.

“Employee health and wellness have always been a key part of business continuity planning, but now more than ever enterprises are looking to IT for help complying with OSHA, ADA, CDC and other guidelines,” said Sudheer Matta, VP, Products, Mist. “The Mist architecture provides unique value by combining Wi-Fi with patented virtual BLE technology, supported by a 16 antenna array that is bi-directional and minimizes the need for extra infrastructure hardware like battery-powered beacons. In addition, Mist recently launched a Premium Analytics service that provides unique insight from a variety of data sources to optimize end-user/client experiences and identify trends that can assist customers with workplace safety.”
