Applications

Cisco CleanAir

Cisco CleanAir technology uses silicon-level intelligence to create a self-healing, self-optimizing wireless network that mitigates the effects of wireless interference. CleanAir classifies and locates individual sources of interference and, when coupled with the Mobility Services Engine, tells you where the interferer is located and how it affects the performance or security of your network.

Cisco Base Location Services

With the Cisco Base Location license, organizations can take advantage of location services and features for a broad range of use cases. including:

  • Advanced spectrum capabilities to enhance CleanAir technology and to capture and consolidate crucial information about RF spectrum, sources of RF interference, and mobile devices on the network
  • Mobility Services API to help customers and partners tightly integrate location information into applications such as asset tracking or mobile apps
  • Mobility Services software development kit to build indoor navigation capabilities and provide an easy guest access and app launching experience for mobile users

Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences

Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) is a Wi-Fi platform that can help organizations deliver customized, location-based mobile services to end users. The CMX license on the Cisco MSE includes:

  • CMX Connect to provide a venue-specific, location-based mobile guest access experience
  • CMX Analytics to gain insight into end-user behavior while inside their venue
  • CMX for Facebook Wi-Fi to support a transparent guest Wi-Fi sign-on experience and to analyze guest profiles using the Cisco and Facebook Wi-Fi platforms
  • CMX Dashboard to build and manage the CMX user journey

Cisco Wireless Intrusion Prevention System

The Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (wIPS) protects the network from penetration attacks, rogue wireless devices, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks to improve security and meet compliance objectives. Read the Cisco MSE data sheet for more detailed product information.
