Mist Systems, a Juniper Networks’ company, has entered into a distribution pact with Ingram Micro. Under terms of the agreement, Ingram will now provide marketing programs, logistics services, technical support, financial services, and product aggregation and distribution across the U.S. for Mist's AI-driven wireless networking products.
The Mist Learning Wireless LAN (WLAN) is designed to deliver insight into the Wi-Fi user experience and eliminate the operational burdens of legacy wireless architectures by replacing time-consuming manual tasks with proactive automation. In addition, Mist brings enterprise-grade Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and the Internet of Things together in order to deliver personalized, location-based services for wireless users.
“By uniting Ingram Micro's experience and extensive knowledge of network, cloud, and security solutions with Mist’s WLAN platform, we are ideally equipped to accelerate the adoption of AI-driven wireless in all industry segments,” said Mike Anderson, head of channels at Mist, in a press statement. “Mist has seen amazing growth in the past two years, with three of the Fortune 10 and approximately 25 of the Fortune 500 adopting our platform to deliver amazing wireless experiences to their employees, guests, and customers. By entering into this new agreement with Ingram Micro, we now have the perfect force multiplier to build on this success and take our channel operations to the next level.”
As part of the Juniper family, Mist’s WLAN platform is designed to work in combination with Juniper’s wired LAN, SD-WAN, and security solutions.
"We're pleased to add Mist to our portfolio of networking and cloud solutions, which already includes the full range of Juniper switching, routing, and security solutions," said Eric Kohl, vice president for advanced solutions at Ingram, in prepared remarks. "The Mist platform brings new and compelling innovation to the wireless space, giving our channel partners a unique way to solve real end-user requirements using the latest AI, cloud, and networking technologies.”
