Link Labs and Polte to Integrate 4G and 5G Positioning Technologies into AirFinder Asset Tracking System

February 26, 2019

DALLAS & ANNAPOLIS, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 26, 2019--Link Labs, Inc., a leading innovator in low-power, wide-area network technologies that power the Internet of Things (IoT), and Polte Corporation, the leader in advanced Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) solutions, today announced they will collaborate to integrate Polte’s location technologies into Link Labs’ AirFinder asset tracking solution. Link Labs will leverage Polte’s agreement with Sequans (NYSE: SQNS) to embed Polte’s C-LoC device software on Sequans’ Monarch platform.

Link Labs’ AirFinder can combine Bluetooth for fine-grained indoor location and LTE-CAT-M1 for low-power, wide area (LPWA) use cases. The AirFinder system delivers power optimization, data efficiency and seamless indoor and outdoor tracking at a low cost.

Polte’s C-LoC solution leverages available 4G and 5G signals and the cloud to enable highly accurate location indoors and outdoors. Polte’s patented algorithms offload location calculations from the device and compute them in the cloud instead, reducing time-to-market while significantly outperforming other cellular location solutions available in the market.

Link Labs CEO Bob Proctor said, “Polte’s location technologies enable an important enhanced feature set to our AirFinder asset tracking system. Combining the power of Polte’s cellular LTE-M1 location solution and Link Labs’ local area Bluetooth and LoRa connectivity into one device provides customers with a quickly scalable, secure, low-power location solution for both indoor and outdoor coverage.”

Polte CEO Ed Chao explained, “Our software-only solution aligns beautifully with the Link Labs AirFinder series. In the past, location solutions required months to deploy. Now the IoT marketplace demands almost immediate scalability, which this collaboration delivers.” Chao continued, “Link Labs’ AirFinder series, combined with Polte’s location technologies, gives customers tremendous power for use cases that require coverage from the factory floor to the freeway.”

Polte will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Feb 25-28, where Link Labs devices can be seen. For more information, visit https://polte.com.
