Last week, we were proud to reach and announce a major milestone in the launch of our Navigator Edition Version 2.0 - the first true turn-by-turn indoor navigation mobile application in commercial deployment in North America.
This week, we are just as proud to announce that we recently completed our IVT testing and certification as a Cisco Compatible Solution Partnerfor Cisco CMX and Cisco MSE 8.0.
Cisco has been a great partner to Connexient, and we are excited about their vision and plan they are executing over the next year to deliver network-based Enterprise grade indoor positioning.
With Cisco MSE 8.0 and Fast Locate Modules (for 3700 and 3600 Series AP's), Cisco has achieved its own important milestone in providing rapid refresh and positioning accuracy to support Location-Enhanced Wayfinding.
As we have talked about in our Indoor Positioning Guide and elsewhere, today Cisco MSE 8.0 + FastLocate can work hand-in-hand with a BLE deployment to deliver important capabilities that are only possible with a network-based approach. Cisco MSE:
- most importantly enables engagement with a user before he/she has even downloaded an app;
- creates user engagement and experience opportunities that are not possible with BLE alone; and
- enables tracking and reporting on all devices (or 70 - 80% of devices), not just devices with an installed application.
We will be leveraging these unique capabilities of Cisco MSE in our implementation at the Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland - launching this Spring - to deliver a truly innovative and powerful solution for its exhibitors.
So we are excited to start off 2015 with this important next step in our relationship with Cisco and we look forward to pushing the envelope further together with Cisco at Hospitals and other Enterprise environments.
