Polte Embedded in Pebblebee Found Cellular-Enabled IoT Trackers

January 7, 2020

Pebblebee integrates Polte’s Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology into IoT tracking devices.

Dallas – Jan 7, 2020 Polte Corporation, a leading  innovator in accurate Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, and Pebblebee, a trackables company, announced a collaboration to embed Polte location technologies into the next generation of Found tracker devices, which feature a rechargeable battery that lasts up to a year on a single charge.

Daniel Daoura, Pebblebee Founder & CEO said, “By embedding Polte’s C-LoC technology into our next generation of tracking devices, Pebblebee is able to deliver a very small tracker that works outdoors as well as indoors with high accuracy and unmatched battery life. We are excited to continue innovation with Polte as we develop new products for IoT use cases.”

Polte CEO Ed Chao explained, “Adding cellular connectivity to Pebblebee’s trackers means being able to locate important things and people when they travel beyond the range of Bluetooth. Polte C-LoC technology enables devices that can last years vs. days and delivers real time intelligence. Polte delivers simply better location for anything that moves.”   

Polte and Pebblebee enable IoT trackers to be always connected, but only tracking when needed, to deliver unprecedented battery life.  Pebblebee’s tracker and smart button technologies help people all over the world keep track of their stuff.  Pebblebee offers a variety of small form factor tracking devices, which currently utilize Bluetooth and GPS to provide location of assets. The collaboration with Polte enables Pebblebee trackers to use existing cellular networks to extend location coverage beyond the range of Bluetooth and provide visibility indoors where GPS does not function. 

Polte’s patented Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) solution leverages ubiquitous 4G & 5G cellular networks and cloud computing to enable highly accurate location data indoors and outdoors. Business processes, customer self-service automation, and better decision-making insights enable consumer, commercial and industrial businesses to capitalize on location, which is essential to how we all work, live and play.

About Pebblebee:

Pebblebee is a multifaceted trackables company helping people save time with our patented tracking solutions.  The Pebblebee idea first emerged in 2012 as a necessary solution to staying connected with a curious toddler’s endless ability to hide things like keys and remote controls. After failed attempts at other homemade solutions, both founders, Daniel and Nick, collaborated to find a way to take back control. That meeting resulted in a vision: help people stay connected to their valuables and loved ones. More information is available at www.pebblebee.com.
