AI-Driven Contact Tracing
Business continuity plans are not only responsible for keeping IT systems accessible during a disaster — they must also ensure workers remain safe and effective in the face of a pandemic. To support this endeavor, Juniper has several tools that assist with contract tracing by leveraging existing wireless access and indoor location technologies coupled with Mist AI. More specifically, Juniper helps mitigate health risks by indentifying:
- With whom infected or symptomatic individuals have recently come in contact
- What office areas they visited and for how long
- If there are hot zones susceptible to spreading a virus
- Any proactive actions that might prevent unnecessary contact
How Juniper can help
Juniper helps ensure the safety of employees, guests, students, customers, and patients as part of a comprehensive business continuity plan. We minimize their exposure with capabilities such as hot zone alerting, user journey information, and proximity tracing.
View historical foot traffic patterns and dwell times for individuals who report testing positive for the COVID-19 or other virus, from the moment they come on site until their departure.
Quickly identify the proximity of COVID-19-positive individuals to other team members.
Hot zone alerting
Use real-time, location-based alerting to direct foot traffic away from congested areas. View trends over time to identify troublesome areas requiring defensive action.
