Wielding the power of "where" should be simple. That's why we made the Polte Location API.

1.

Claim the Device

POST /customer/{customerId}/userEquipment/claim

curl -X POST "https://polte.io/api/v1/customer/<customer_id>/userEquipment/claim" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Polte-API <API-token>" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{\"productDefinitionId\":\"<productDefinitionId>\",\"identifiers\": [ \"<identifiers>\" 
],\"type\":\"IMEI\"}"
2.

Register the Device

Call the register API, GET /ue/register/

curl -X GET "https://polte.io/api/v1/ue/register?manufacturerToken=<manufacturer_token> \
&modelToken=<model_token>&ueToken=<ue_token>&identifierValue=<identifierValue>&identifierType=<identifierType>" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Polte-API API-Token"
3.

Locate the Device

POST /ue/{ueToken}/locate

curl -X POST "https://polte.io/api/v1/ue/<ue_token>/locate?sync=true" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "X-UE-Auth: base64 encoded mqttAuthUser:mqttAuthPassword" \
-H "Authorization: Polte-API API-Token" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{ \"payload\": \"payload from device\"}"
POST /customer/{customerId}/userEquipment/claim

curl -X POST "https://polte.io/api/v1/customer/<customer_id>/userEquipment/claim" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Polte-API <API-token>" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{\"productDefinitionId\":\"<productDefinitionId>\",\"identifiers\": [ \"<identifiers>\" 
],\"type\":\"IMEI\"}"

Indoor and Outdoor Location Made Easy

Polte uses broadly available 4G & 5G cellular signals to accurately determine the location of devices indoors and out, without the use of GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or competing technologies. Read about how our Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology works here.

Polte Location API

Minimal Hardware

Polte is a software-only solution that requires just the cellular modem. Because it replaces the need for GPS and Wi-Fi for location, it reduces your overall bill of materials – including the need for additional radios, batteries and antennas.

Asset tracking use cases

Simple to Deploy and Use

Polte offers a clear, familiar development interface for devices, leveraging standard, globally-available 4G & 5G reference signals with no complex network integration and no impact to network capacity.

Optimal Security

Your location information is yours – and it should stay that way. With computations not calculated on the device itself, Polte has designed its solution with security at the core.

Polte Location API

Polte’s technology allows a significant cost-per-device savings, a power consumption savings of 70 percent–up to 90 percent for indoor locations–along with indoor accuracy superior to GNSS devices. With Polte technology integrated, we add real and measurable value to our Monarch platform.
