CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mist, a pioneer in self-learning networks powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced the addition of several new enhancements to the company’s Wi-Fi Assurance and Marvis Virtual Network Assistant (VNA) services that bring unprecedented insight and automation to wireless networks. New features include an expanded conversational UI leveraging Natural Language Processing (NLP) for enhanced queries and insight, anomaly detection using deep learning to proactively identify and fix problems without false positives, AI-driven Radio Resource Management (RRM) for automated self-healing and new Wired and Wide Area Network (WAN) classifiers that augment the extensive range of service levels available via the Mist platform. With the Mist Learning Wireless LAN (WLAN), Wi-Fi is more predictable, reliable and measurable than ever, with proactive automation and insight that saves IT time and money.
According to Gartner, “The intricacy of access layer network decisions and the aggravation of end-user downtime are more than IT organizations can handle. Infrastructure and operations leaders must implement automation and artificial intelligence solutions to reduce mundane tasks and lost productivity.”1
“While other vendors are trying to bolt AI on top of legacy platforms, Mist built an AI engine from scratch on top of a real-time microservices cloud platform,” said Sudheer Matta, vice president of products at Mist. “This eliminates the need for expensive overlay hardware and software, it saves time and money with elastic scale and it provides unprecedented feature agility. Only Mist is able to roll out groundbreaking new features with relability and stability in weeks instead of months or years, bringing incredible value to Mist customers.”
Mist uses various techniques like Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Data Science to deliver the best Wi-Fi experience to end users, IT administrators and Managed Service Providers (MSPs), putting ever increasing business-critical services on top of their wireless networks.
