HID Global and Mist Systems Collaborate on Location Services using Bluetooth LE for IoT

HID Global, trusted identity solutions company, and Mist Systems, a maker of self-learning wireless networks powered by artificial intelligence (AI), recently announced that the two companies are working together to converge Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-based location services with Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure for better deployment, management, and operations of IoT devices.

With HID Location Services that is enabled by Bluvision, HID Global is leading innovation in the IoT space as market leaders in sensor beacons for workflow and event management. The Mist Learning WLAN reportedly is a single, converged cloud-based microservices platform for Wi-Fi and BLE indoor location services, designed to eliminate the need for expensive overlay platforms and battery powered gateways for asset location and user engagement. The combined solution provides an architecture for scalable IoT asset tracking and management that reduces costs, eliminates complexity, and fosters rapid adoption across organizational functions and use cases, the two companies said.

“The typical hospital today has over 20 different use cases for IoT tracking and management that can increase profitability, patient care and overall patient experiences,” said Rom Eizenberg, VP, Sales, Bluvision, part of HID Global. “The introduction of AI-driven indoor location capabilities using standards-based BLE makes the deployment of these services scalable and cost effective, and reduces barriers to entry for many clinical scenarios previously locked out of benefiting from these state-of-the-art capabilities.”

“By deploying Mist and HID Location Services together, enterprises have a proven solution to electronically touch and validate anything that moves, playing a strategic role in IoT environments,” said Bob Friday, Founder & CTO, Mist. ”As we enter a new era of ubiquitous indoor location services, it is imperative that leading vendors come together to create seamless solutions for seamless and reliable BLE deployments.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
