Polaris Wireless announces expansion in MEA region with multi-million dollar contract

Deal Expands Global Footprint of OmniLocate High-Accuracy Wireless Location Platform and Altus Solution for Law Enforcement & Intelligence Agencies

Polaris Wireless, the global leader in high-accuracy, software-based wireless location solutions, today announced a significant customer contract, for a multi-million dollar deployment of the Polaris Wireless Altus and OmniLocate location surveillance product suite. The deal represents a major increase in Polaris Wireless' business in the MEA region, directed out of the company's regional headquarters in Dubai. This is the latest deployment of the company's high-accuracy wireless location surveillance solution in an area increasingly vital to the global efforts against crime and terrorism. Polaris Wireless high-accuracy location solutions are also deployed in North America and the Asia-Pacific region."Having established our MEA headquarters less than one year ago, we are very pleased at the growing demand for our high-accuracy wireless location surveillance solutions in the region," said Manlio Allegra, Polaris Wireless CEO and co-founder. "Our success is directly attributed to our unmatched ability to provide a 2G/3G-compatible high-accuracy location and accurate mass location surveillance solution."

The Polaris Wireless Altus application suite is the industry's only software-based surveillance solution that enables accurate mass location, providing users the ability to simultaneously locate all subscribers in a wireless network in real time and on a historical basis. This unique capability enables functions, such as target identification, tracking via geo-fence, and post-event analytics, which are vital to the anti-crime and anti-terrorism surveillance efforts of Polaris Wireless customers in the MEA and Asia-Pacific regions.

"International customers choose Polaris Wireless because of its leadership in providing flexible location solutions," continued Allegra. "We are being awarded multi-million dollar deployments for mission-critical services by international governments because we understand and can quickly adapt to the problems our customers are facing."

To maximize its accuracy location performance, the Altus application suite is being deployed with the OmniLocate platform powered by Polaris Wireless Location Signatures (WLS®), the most accurate software-based location method for dense urban and indoor environments. Polaris WLS® is capable of locating a wireless device to within 50 meters and helps customers avoid the costly and time-consuming maintenance associated with hardware-based location solutions. Polaris Wireless provides its customers regular product enhancements and updates, and 24/7 technical and operational support for optimal performance.
