The Israel Museum Curates Visitor Experiences with Juniper Mist Wi-Fi

The Israel Museum is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel and is among the world’s leading art and archeology museums. The museum spans prehistory to the present day and features the most extensive holdings of biblical and Holy Land archeology in the world. The Israel Museum deployed a Juniper wireless network, driven by Mist AI, to power visitors’ digital experiences in the museum.

People are increasingly seeking out personalized, immersive, and sharable experiences, and these desires are leading many museums to apply the latest technologies to engage with visitors. The Wi-Fi is the foundation of any interactive user experience in the museum compound.

"When we plan ahead we expect Juniper Access Points give us a one-meter accuracy through the use of virtual Bluetooth beacons. Having the Bluetooth function inside the Juniper Access Point was the main advantage."

business challenge

The museum has impeccably designed galleries and a stunning outdoor garden. But the museum building also posed unique wireless engineering challenges, with walls made of fiber cement that are moved as galleries are reconfigured. The design of the wireless access points also must fit the museum’s aesthetics. Despite the challenges, the Juniper wireless with Mist AI is delivering superior network experiences to 800,000 visitors a year. AI-driven operations simplify the IT support workload.
