Today, we’re pleased to share that Juniper Networks, driven by Mist AI, was once again named a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global, with the highest placement for Completeness of Vision. We believe this achievement validates our unique value proposition for scalable and accurate location services that the top retail, healthcare, education and enterprise customers have deployed to deliver personalized user engagement, asset tracking and proximity tracing services to employees, guests, patients and students.
Furthermore, this report is a perfect complement to the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure where Juniper Networks was recently named a Leader, with the highest placement for Ability to Execute. Together, we believe these two reports make Juniper the clear choice for enterprises looking to deliver Wi-Fi, IoT and indoor location as a single integrated wireless infrastructure.
At the core of Juniper’s indoor location services is our patented Virtual Bluetooth Low-Energy (vBLE) technology and Mist AI, which eliminates the need for battery powered beacons and manual configuration. Juniper also provides seamless integration with technology partner solutions through a 100% programmable open API. To this end, we have a robust ecosystem of partners that we work closely with in order to leverage Ultra-Wideband (UWB), LiDAR and Computer Vision to enhance our location services. We also partner with various application vendors and technology companies like ServiceNow to ensure our location services can be easily integrated with a variety of use cases, including real-time analytics for visibility and social distancing.
As companies, schools, stores and the other organizations look to bring people back onsite in 2021, indoor location services will continue to provide new and innovative ways of driving business value. Furthermore, indoor location services enable Juniper customers and partners to get even more out of their Wireless LAN and IoT infrastructures. Put simply, we believe this is a winning combination that will continue to set Juniper apart from the competition for many years to come.
