Mist built the first wireless platform for the Smart Device era. This partnership enables Micello maps to be used within Mist’s wireless platform to deliver high-accuracy, low latency indoor wayfinding, and virtual beacon-based proximity services. 

Mist is leveraging Micello indoor maps to deliver highly accurate indoor location services using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

These innovative features include:

  • Virtual BLE (vBLE) beacons: Mist eliminates the challenges of physical beacons by enabling virtual beacons to be set-up anywhere on a Micello map with the click of a mouse. This lets customers avoid expensive and time-consuming BLE site surveys, ongoing calibration difficulties, and other operational issues that often hold back BLE deployments.
  • Best location accuracy (1-3 m) with sub-second latency: Mist uses a real-time location engine directional vBLE arrays in Mist Access Points to deliver the highest accuracy and performance of any BLE solution. Location data is constantly fed to Micello for accurate placement on maps for real turn-by-turn navigation across hotels, hospitals, schools, and other venues.    

We have already deployed at multiple joint customers together and are growing quickly to add more. This combined solution will help both companies satisfy the growing multi-billion dollar demand for indoor location-based services
