PHY’s hellaPHY® family of products provide the necessary software with a simple API to deliver comprehensive location and estimation technology that leverages 4G/5G networks to deliver breakthrough low power positioning with high performance location accuracy.

Location Technology and IoT Data Are Transforming Business

Location matters now more than ever. It encompasses the ability of “things” to sense and communicate their geographic position, acting as an organizing principle for anything connected to the Internet. As a result, it is fast becoming a must-have element for most connected solutions to leverage the full value of the Internet of Things (IoT):
  • Providing real-time location intelligence
  • Tracking valuable assets across the globe
  • Optimizing operations
  • Enhancing the customer experience

Technical Challenges

Positioning currently requires a patchwork of GNSS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, beacons, cellular (4G/5G) networks for a complete positioning solution:

  • 1All positioning platforms depend on knowable reference points.
  • 23GPP Wireless 4G & 5G is the only way to connect all devices to the internet.
  • 3Existing solutions today cannot meet cost, power, and accuracy needs.
  • 4Carriers have assumed until now that no complete solution exists based on their experience.

With PHY Wireless positioning only a 4G/5G network is required for a complete positioning solution. One network for all positioning.
