High Accuracy, Scalable Software Location Technology
Radio Frequency Pattern Matching (RFPM) is the only high accuracy, software-based, scalable location solution that requires no changes to the mobile phone and no additional hardware at the base stations.
Is the only highly accurate, scalable and software-based location solution that is completely plug-and-play. It does not require any additional hardware changes or additions at either the mobile phone or base station. Built on a patented implementation of the 3GPP-standardized Radio Frequency Pattern Matching (RFPM) location technique, Polaris WLS® compares mobile measurements – such as signal strength, signal-to-interference ratio, time delays and more – against a geo-referenced database of the mobile operator’s radio environment, in order to get the highest accuracy location possible. Polaris WLS® is unique in that it addresses the entire subscriber base and all mobile devices – not just smart devices.
Polaris WLS® reliably and cost-effectively supports the full range of required location applications for law enforcement and government safety, across GSM, UMTS, WiMAX and LTE networks. Polaris WLS® is able to locate any device, and works extremely well in non-line-of-sight conditions, such as dense urban and indoor environments, where GPS-based solutions are challenged. Because of its high degree of functionality, accuracy and reliability in any environment, Polaris WLS® is ideal for mission-critical and safety-of-life applications.
Polaris Wireless’ hybrid location technology provides the best possible accuracy through a statistical combination of best-in-class geo-location and measurement technologies. Addressing all of today’s comprehensive application needs, the hybrid solution merges the software-only, dense urban and indoor capabilities of Polaris WLS® with the precise location capabilities of Assisted-GPS and other solutions.
For customers who need a handset-based solution, Assisted-GPS (A-GPS) is available as a location solution that requires GPS receiver chipsets in the subscriber mobile phones. A-GPS combines information from multiple satellites by using a mobile network for quicker response time, and it can be deployed in GSM, UMTS and LTE networks, working especially well in direct line-of-sight conditions.
