PoLTE Brings Advanced LTE Location-Technology To MWC 2017

PoLTE Corporation will be showcasing their breakthrough, next-generation location technology, Positioning over LTE (PoLTE) during the Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC 17) which starts in Barcelona today. PoLTE delivers the ubiquitous and persistent real-time location of LTE-enabled mobile and IoT devices, seamlessly indoors and outdoors.

With the numerous possibilities of deficiencies occurring in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS when tracking LTE devices, PoLTE can geo locate 4G and 5G devices anywhere, at any time leveraging only the native cellular signals that already exist between an LTE device and the mobile operator’s existing network. They use advanced radar location techniques to transform reference signals embedded in an LTE transmission into precise location. They thus are able to achieve superior performance through the patented use of super resolution algorithms, which can provide upwards of 10 times the resolution or location accuracy as compared to legacy approaches. This ultimately provides a complete and cohesive view of a device’s location - inside or outside – all without the need for mobile network operators to add costly location infrastructure or for venue owners to significantly increase the density of their Wi-Fi networks or deploy costly purpose-built Bluetooth location solutions.

Furthermore, PoLTE’s technology ensures user privacy through the inherent security of the LTE network. They provide a new level of positioning accuracy, capable of tracking any LTE-enabled device across multiple implementations, indoors or outside as users and devices traverse macro, micro, and small cells. Additionally, by working in conjunction with the existing LTE networks, users no longer need to deal with the hassle and security concerns of connecting to new Bluetooth or Wi-Fi-based networks and instead can have confidence that their mobile network operators have them protected.
