Networks Supported

Polaris Wireless provides high-accuracy wireless location in all air interfaces, incorporating measurements from 2G, 3G and 4G LTE air interfaces, as well as evolving handset technologies, such as WiFi, WiMAX, and Bluetooth, and indoor technologies such as Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Femtocells.

2G (GSM/CDMA), 3G (UMTS/WCDMA), 4G (LTE)

Works on all air interfaces in use by wireless operators across the globe.

WiFi

Makes effective use of Wi-Fi hotspots to augment location accuracy indoors.

WiMAX

Utilizes signals from wide-area networks to accurately pinpoint location of all mobile devices.

Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)

As wireless operators ramp us deployment of Distributed Antenna Systems in venues such as subways and shopping malls, Polaris Wireless integrates these measurements into its award-winning wireless location solutions.

Femtocells

Femtocells increase the ability to accurately locate devices indoors.

Geo-Location Methods »

Geo-Location Methods

Polaris Wireless provides a wide range of geo-location methods, from the highly-accurate Radio Frequency Pattern Matching, to basic Cell ID, all to meet the varying needs of today's sophisticated applications.

RFPM, Radio Frequency Pattern Matching

Radio Frequency Pattern Matching (RFPM) is the only high accuracy, software-based, scalable location solution that requires no additional hardware changes/additions to the mobile phone or at the base stations.

Hybrid Wireless Technology

For today's comprehensive application needs, a hybrid solution of geo-location methods is often the best option. This combines the software-only, dense urban and indoor capabilities of Radio Frequency Pattern Matching with the precise location capabilities of Assisted-GPS.

A-GPS

Assisted-GPS (A-GPS) is a handset-based location solution that requires GPS receiver chipsets to be included in the subscriber mobile phones.

Other Wireless Technology

When the application does not require pinpoint accuracy, there are other geo-location methods that may be used to complement high-accuracy location methods.
