One of the smallest but fastest-growing vendors to make Gartner's 2017 Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN report is Mist Systems. The Cupertino, Calif.-based startup's Mist platform uses machine learning technology to simplify Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) operations to minimize wireless costs and provide indoor location services to mobile users. Mist's dual-radio access points have 16 integrated antenna elements for BLE and collect over 100 different user states, which are processed through a machine-learning engine. Founded in 2014, Mist saw over 200 percent growth year over year and has raised more than $42 million in funding.
