Leveraging WiFi Sensing for Client-less (device-free) Location
WiFi Sensing is an innovative technology that can eliminate the need to deploy tags while bringing visibility into occupancy, motion and traffic flows within enterprise, healthcare, retail and hospitality environments. It is complementary to other location technologies such as BLE or UWB while addressing several use cases that those technologies cannot easily address.
“We are very excited to be working with Juniper and Mist in order to extend WiFi Sensing technology and leverage the Mist AI-Driven enterprise WiFi infrastructure to solve customer challenges. "We are already working with many customers to address new clientless (device-free) location problems in the securityWe are already working with many customers to address new clientless location problems in the security, safety and patient care areas and are looking to expand the use cases that we can solve with our complementary technologies”, said ,Michel Allegue, CTO and Co-Founder at Aerial Technologies.
