Wi-Fi network owners can gain far more value by implementing advanced location services to track both indoor and outdoor locations in real-time, capture more actionable user information, and provide more attractive services. In Connected Mobile Experiences and Location Based Services, three leading Cisco Wi-Fi experts show how to achieve these goals with the Cisco Mobility Services Engine -- connecting, detecting, and engaging Wi-Fi customers more effectively than ever before.
The authors review the science of how locations are calculated, introduce the Cisco hardware required to calculate indoor location based on Wi-Fi, and show how this information can be leveraged to perform more effective analysis and deliver more profitable location based services. Drawing on extensive experience with Cisco Wi-Fi customers, they present many architecture diagrams and deployment images to illustrate superior Wi-Fi network engineering. They also present in-depth, hands-on MSE troubleshooting information available nowhere else: indispensable knowledge for thousands of organizations that already rely on MSE.
Coverage also includes concise discussions of related technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons, Ultrasound, Infrared and Ultrawide Band (UWB); as well as an insider's preview of the future of Real Time Location Services (RTLS).
