Edge computing technology that enables high-accuracy and low-power location services for existing LTE and 5G networks. This new solution helps service providers overcome the economic and deployment challenges of location tracking with low power, low cost, high accuracy, and secure location solutions.

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 rich location intelligence
  • Tracking valuable assets from the warehouse across the globe
  • Optimizing operations
  • Enhancing the customer experience

Technical Challenges

  • Positioning currently requires multiple technologies to provide location, including one or more of GNSS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, beacons, cellular (4G/5G) networks for a complete positioning solution, which increases device cost.
  • Current cellular based solutions do not provide the accuracy required for rich data analysis.
  • IoT demands low power and long battery life. Today’s location solutions simply do not provide the low power needed.
  • Users demand privacy for their data and do not want third parties, or unapproved cloud storage of this information.
  • Today’s cellular solutions utilize too much bandwidth and cannot support a massive IoT rollout cost effectively for MNOs.

With PHY Wireless positioning is built on industry standards designed to provide more precise cellular positioning and does so at the lowest spectrum utilization. Power requirements are orders of magnitude less than GNSS and other cellular approaches. Only the device and its owner have access to the location information.
