Using Mobile IoT instead of GPS, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, Polte better prepares businesses for what’s next in digital transformation.
Mobile IoT: Location Without Limits
The Disruptive Competitive
Advantage of Mobile IoT
|Outdoors (suburban/rural)||Indoors (urban/suburban)||Indoors||Outdoors, Indoors (urban/suburban/rural)|
Long time to first fix
|Constant AP scanning||Constant beacon interaction||Wake on-demand location queries extends battery life|
|Radio, antenna, more battery||Radio, antenna, more battery, cloud||Radio, beacons, more battery||Software-only, cloud|

|Easily spoofed||Easily hacked||Easily hacked||Location not calculated on device itself; Secure from chip to cloud|
Polte’s Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) accuracy is competitive with alternate location technologies like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi indoors. However, the innovation of C-LoC is the ability to take that coverage and extend it outdoors and across geographies – without GPS/GNSS. By leveraging existing global 4G & 5G cellular networks and cloud computing, there’s no need to build and maintain separate infrastructure. Polte simply deploys over-the-top of existing Mobile IoT networks, using a single cellular radio and offloading computational complexity from the device to the cloud. This, in turn, leaves your information more secure than with devices using competing technology that may perform the bulk of calculations on the device itself.
With more security, smaller size, lower cost and longer battery life, Polte democratizes location while addressing the downfalls of competing technologies for the IoT.
The Polte IoT Cloud (PIC) uses a software-only solution consisting of the Polte Location API, the Polte LE and the Polte Mapping Interface. With the team’s more than a decade of experience perfecting super resolution algorithms and securing global patents, Polte serves Industry 4.0, supply chain visibility and digital transformation initiatives with greater location insights for far less the investment.
Polte is a foundational element that enables us to offer exceptional location services in our small, low-cost line of Mobile IoT modules.
