Ekahau – Locates people and equipment via Wifi


Ekahau makes an asset tracking system that uses enterprise or VoIP level wifi routers to keep track of people or equipment. Everything you want tracked needs to be tagged with a wifi tag but there’s a tag for almost every application, including hospital patients, assets or equipment, remote temperature probes or even employees that work in dangerous or hazardous areas. They even have a wifi pager.

The system is accurate enough to tell whether a tagged object has moved within a room, has changed rooms, changed floors or even changed buildings. It’s all tied together using the Ekahau Positioning Engine, a SkyNet-like system that can keep track of up to 10,000 tagged objects per server. Click through to Ekahau’s website and get all the details. It looks like a great idea.

Ekahau RTLS is the only Wi-Fi-based location tracking solution that can operate over any brand or generation of Wi-Fi network while offering sub room-, room-, floor- and building-level accuracy. As a Wi-Fi standards-based software solution, Ekahau RTLS requires no readers, new cabling, choke-points or exciters. The system uses patented software-based algorithms to compute the location of tracked objects and can easily scale to support tens of thousands of tags on a single server. With Ekahau, your RTLS solution can be up and running in a matter of days or a few weeks, not months.
