Rohde & Schwarz and Polte are pushing the boundaries of what an IoT device can support to enable accurate location determination on a cellular network.
Columbia, MD, May 15, 2018 — Rohde & Schwarz is collaborating with Polte Corporation, a leader in cellular-based location solutions, to accelerate the robustness and accuracy of cellular location technologies. Rohde & Schwarz and Polte are enhancing the cellular IoT ecosystem and expanding the opportunity for new IoT use cases. Location-based services will enable a wide range of use cases, including industrial IoT, healthcare IoT, Internet of Life Saving Things IoT, manufacturing IoT, agriculture IoT, energy IoT, automotive IoT and countless others.
The R&S TS-LBS test solution uses the R&S CMW500 network emulator to simulate LTE Release 8-14 3GPP IoT technologies, including NB-IoT (Cat-NB1), eNB-IoT (Cat-NB2), eMTC (Cat-M1), LTE Cat 1 and LTE Cat 4 in combination with terrestrial location technologies, such as OTDOA and eCID. Polte will help pilot advanced testing using the R&S CMW500 by simulating difficult mobile environments so that they can deliver the most comprehensive and robust location solution for the cellular IoT marketplace.
“Working with strong ecosystem partners like Rohde & Schwarz, PoLTE can deliver increasingly more refined location intelligence even in the most demanding environments and testing scenarios,” said Ed Chao, CEO, Polte Corporation. “Our advanced algorithms and cloud-based architecture allow IoT devices to hand-off computations to the cloud, leveraging limitless computational capabilities inherent in the cloud, thereby shrinking device size, lowering cost per unit and reducing battery demands, which will become increasingly more important in IoT devices used in the Industrial IoT and asset tracking space.”
