Ekahau Named Finalist in Emerging Technology Awards Competition
Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal Honors Ekahau for Wi-Fi-based RTLS Supply Chain Management Solution
Saratoga, CA --- November 14, 2006 --- Ekahau Inc., a leading provider of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), today announced that it is one of three finalists in the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal Emerging Technology Awards competition in the supply chain management category.
The Ekahau Real Time Location System (RTLS) adds “sight” to Wi-Fi networks that have been deployed for voice and data communications. It is the only non-proprietary RTLS solution that can be implemented 100 percent over standard, open Wi-Fi networks. It also offers the industry’s highest reliability and accuracy.
“Many businesses face daily challenges keeping track of their assets. The expense of over-provisioning and the time lost hunting for inventory, critical pieces of equipment or vital staff members are considerable,” said Antti Korhonen, president and CEO of Ekahau. “The Ekahau RTLS solution is helping businesses solve this problem with an affordable, open-standard method for finding objects and persons outdoors and indoors, even in locations where GPS can’t reach.”
By using existing Wi-Fi access points and probabilistic mathematics, the Ekahau RTLS can determine the real-time location of any asset or person carrying a Wi-Fi-enabled device (e.g. laptop, PDA) or a special tag up to 1 meter. The Ekahau RTLS Solution provides real-time and historic tracking data on a visual map that is accessible from an Internet-enabled device.
The Ekahau RTLS helps enterprises and government improve physical workflows and supply chains, and avoid having to over-provision physical assets. The solution is currently used for many applications in supply chains, healthcare, manufacturing, government and military, as well as others.
The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal Emerging Technology Awards competition is designed to honor companies and individuals who are leaders in the world of technology. As a finalist, Ekahau will be featured in the November 17 edition of the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal.
