Cloud-Based Real-Time Location Solution Announced
RESTON, Virginia -- Ekahau Inc., the leader in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) using Wi-Fi announced today with Meraki, a leader in Cloud Networking, the availability of a cloud-based Wi-Fi RTLS solution for enterprises.
Real-Time Location Systems help decision-makers measure and manage workflows and uncover hidden workflow bottlenecks. The Ekahau and Meraki cloud-based RTLS solution shortens deployment time and reduces costs with Ekahau's software-based RTLS approach and browser-based asset and people location tracking and management capabilities along with Meraki's cloud managed wireless access points (APs). The combined solution offers zero-touch (AP) provisioning and intuitive management without the need for additional, wired chokepoints or in-room readers.
"Our cloud-based networking solution, combined with Ekahau's technology, makes location tracking of assets and people very cost-effective and simple. We can now deliver a complete RTLS and Wi-Fi solution in a matter of days instead of months," said Christopher Bockman, Product Manager at Meraki. "By joining forces with Ekahau, we are delivering accurate location technology without unnecessary cost or complexity."
"By partnering with Meraki to offer cloud-based location tracking, we're making RTLS accessible for companies large and small who have Wi-Fi and need location-based business intelligence to make better decisions," said Mark Norris, President and CEO of Ekahau. "Our combined solution enables enterprises with disparate facilities around the country and the world to gain real-time visibility into the location and status of mission critical assets and other resources within their organizations."
