MazeMap & Cisco

The power of partnership

MazeMap is a leading provider for indoor maps and navigation services designed for large building complexes such as universities, hospitals, corporate offices, and hotels. The platform allows for better user experience and more efficient building usage. Cisco DNA Spaces provides rich location-based services, including location analytics, customer engagement toolkits, asset management, enterprise application integrations, and location-data APIs.

The collaboration between MazeMap and DNA Spaces allows clients to get a more holistic solution by enabling the visualization of DNA Spaces data in real-time.

"Cisco DNA Spaces is the world's most powerful location platform and when coupled with MazeMap the outcome is a truly intuitive set of use cases that enable people to explore and enjoy physical spaces like never before." - Tina Gunderson, Worldwide Sales Leader, Cisco DNA Spaces

Discover the posibillities

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is Norway's largest university. A couple of years ago, MazeMap, Cisco, and Telenor teamed together to solve the university's wayfinding problems. Today, the university is still happy, and business has expanded.  

NTNU use indoor positioning, powered by DNA Spaces. This allows map users to track their location in real time and gain more accurate directions. This also allows students to save time when navigating between classes and be more efficient with their school day.

Together, Cisco DNA Spaces and MazeMap offer a range of solutions that not only improve the experience for building users, but also make it easier for building managers to manage their spaces.


Indoor positioning and wayfinding

In large building complexes, such as universities, hospitals, offices, hotels, and conference venues, it’s often difficult to find specific rooms or points of interest (POI’s). MazeMap provides intuitive A to B directions for users, and with the addition of Cisco DNA Spaces, users can also see their exact location live on the map.


Meeting room visualization and booking with webex devices

Trying to find an available meeting room can be a difficult task. In addition, many people book meeting rooms but never show up. With Cisco and MazeMap, users can see which rooms are available and book in one click, find the closest room to their location, and set-up auto cancellation of meeting rooms in case of a no-show.

Coming soon: Cisco and MazeMap are currently developing a split room solution, which will help users to main social distancing regulations. You can see the proposed solution in action in the video below.

In large building complexes, such as universities, hospitals, offices, hotels, and conference venues, it’s often difficult to find specific rooms or points of interest (POI’s). MazeMap provides intuitive A to B directions for users, and with the addition of Cisco DNA Spaces, users can also see their exact location live on the map.

Occupancy heatmaps

When trying to decide how best to utilize a building space, it can be difficult to know which areas aren’t being used to their full potential. Heatmaps allow users to see in real-time where people are located around the building and gain insight into how people use the spaces. Users can also monitor crowd levels, which aids greatly with social distancing in the post-COVID world.

Asset tracking

Keeping track of limited resources and equipment like IV pumps and ventilators is a challenge in large hospitals, often resulting in doctors, nurses and general staff wasting valuable time locating them. With Cisco's Asset Locater, map users can get a real-time overview of where assets(s) are located and how long it will take to navigate to them.

Find workspaces based on where users are located using their mobile devices or from Webex Room devices.

Users will see a map of the building and floor plan and can search for all rooms and points-of-interest (POI) and see where they are located. On their devices,users can also see their own position in the map as a “blue dot” which updates as they move. If users access the map on a Webex Room device, they can scan a QR code and get the maps on their phone.

Integrations:
• Cisco DNA Spaces for indoor positioning
• Cisco Webex Room devices for kiosk mode

MazeMap Service 2: Workspace Finder/Booker with Wayfinding (MAZE-ROOM-FND-Svr2)

The license pricing is per Wi-Fi AP and the min order a customer can do is 50 APs. The SKU (MAZE-ROOM-FND-Svr2) can be a stand alone if only maps, wayfinding with positioning. If the customers wants to visualize available meeting rooms and be able to book them SKU MAZE-MTGROOM-FND needs to be added.

Interactive wayfinding and indoor positioning, with the possibility of finding available workspaces, booking workspaces now and freeing up booked workspaces if there is a ‘no-show’.

Users will see a map of the building and floorplan and can search for all rooms and points-of-interest (POIs), see where they are located and get navigation with indoor positioning to the POIs. On their devices, users can book workspaces and be guided to them with navigation and indoor positioning. Users can see their own position in the map as a “blue dot” which updates in as they move. If users access the map on a Webex Rooms device, they can scan a QR code and get the maps on their phone.

Rooms/workspaces can also be booked on the map and visualized as available or not. If a workspace is booked and no one shows up, the room can be released so that it becomes available and can be booked by others.


Integrations:
● Cisco DNA Spaces for positioning for indoor positioning
● Cisco DNA Spaces for Cisco Webex Room devices
● Outlook 365/Google calendar/Cisco hybrid calendar service
● Cisco Webex Rooms devices for kiosk mode


Note: If meeting rooms are added for booking or occupancy detection, the relevant term price of MAZE-Meet-ROOM-FND should be added to the term price of Service 2 (MAZE-ROOM-FND-Svr2)
