PoLTE and ACS Partner to Deliver LTE-Based Precise Location Data to Commercial and Industrial IoT Markets
Next-Generation Location Technology Delivers More Precision and Security
DALLAS & HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. & BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PoLTE Corporation, developer of Positioning over LTE (PoLTE)™, and ACS, developer of advanced Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) solutions, today announced they are partnering on the development of enterprise communication solutions, including real-time LTE-based location tracking for mobile and IoT devices.
Leveraging the native and ubiquitous cellular LTE signals, PoLTE's technology enables the seamless and persistent tracking of LTE devices indoors or outdoors. Utilizing PoLTE's next-generation location technology, ACS' Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) platform will enable enterprises in the manufacturing, industrial, and transportation industries to continuously track the real-time location of LTE-connected assets, goods, workers, and devices with precision.
"Unlike with localized Wi-Fi and Bluetooth location technology approaches, our combined offering with ACS provides a new, ubiquitous, and secure method for obtaining continuous and cohesive location data of LTE-enabled devices," said Russ Markhovsky, Founder and President of PoLTE. "Furthermore, by utilizing the native LTE signals we eliminate the need to deploy Bluetooth beacons or densify Wi-Fi networks for location purposes. Really, why track an LTE device with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth now that we have made this breakthrough and can track an LTE device utilizing native LTE signals?"
PoLTE is the only persistent and ubiquitous location technology that can scale with accuracy and reliability in mass for today's 4G and tomorrow's 5G networks and devices.
"Our partnership with PoLTE was born out of the necessity to meet the requirements of enterprise IoT and M2M applications," said Bob Pike, Chief Technology Officer, Network and Mobile Broadband, at ACS. "The fact is, traditional location presence methodologies, such as Wi-Fi and beacons, simply do not work in many commercial and industrial applications or settings. PoLTE's LTE-based location technology delivers the real-time location data, with precision and security that our customers demand."
ACS' MEC architectures combine wireless technology with an IT-type service environment to deliver efficient communications services with ultra-low latency and high bandwidth. MEC software applications can tap into local content and information about network conditions so that traffic can be handled in an optimal way; examples include local traffic offload and caching, and video optimization.
