Cisco's MSE aggregates Ekahau tags' location data across the Cisco Wi-Fi network, making that data available to the Ekahau Vision™ software for analysis and business intelligence reporting. By centralizing Ekahau's Wi-Fi-based RTLS data in the Cisco MSE, the joint solution is highly scalable and location updates are faster, allowing large enterprise customers to:

  • Isolate and remove workflow inefficiencies by analyzing asset and staff locations
  • Improve staff, patient and guest security with location-aware alerting
  • Automate manual processes and work orders with location and status-triggered messaging
  • Minimize guest and patient wait times to improve satisfaction
  • Measure and monitor temperature-sensitive materials to ensure Joint Commission compliance

Mark Norris, President and CEO of Ekahau adds, "Ekahau is proud to collaborate with Cisco and offer our customers an integrated RTLS solution that improves safety, customer experience and enterprise decision-making by analyzing the location, and condition and status of assets, people and workflows in the enterprise."
