WN Podcast 026 – RTLS – Part 2 – Real World Testing

Welcome to our new WiFi Ninjas Podcast episode!

This is the continuation of the RTLS discussion, focusing on real-world tests and demos!

Three things have changed since we recorded the podcast:

  • We’ve confirmed that you can draw wayfinding paths in Prime, called ‘Rails’ in a Cisco world!
  • We’ve discussed Mist presence and analytics network-wide stats that you can include in a report; new functionality has just been added, where you can see all that stats live! Big thing from Mist, thank you guys 🙂
  • We are discussing WiFi Trilateration (lateration, so distance based, without any special AP requirements – internal omni is OK) RTLS and NOT WiFi Triangulation (that is angle based and requires multiple antenna arrays or mechanically agile antennas)

WN Podcast 025 – RTLS – Part 1 – The Theory

Welcome to our new WiFi Ninjas Podcast episode!

Today we kick of the RTLS discussion, starting with a theory! We’ll cover how different technologies like WiFi or BLE can make RTLS work and what the RTLS really is.

We’ll discuss RTLS functional blocks like network wide presence stats, location aware functions like blue dot and zone location analysis and actions and engagement.

 It’s a vast topic, and we’ll release a blog about it shortly, so this show notes are rather short! Stay tuned 🙂

With tons of love x,
