May 19, 2011 - PRLog -- New York, NY – May 19 2011 – Extricom Ltd., a designer and manufacturer of high-performance, next generation wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure solutions, and Ekahau the worldwide leader in Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) announced today that that they have entered into a technology and marketing partnership.

Real-Time location tracking is increasingly utilized in healthcare, government, retail, hospitality, and mining and the Extricom-Ekahau RTLS over Wi-Fi solution is an ideal platform to enable organizations to quickly and cost-effectively deploy an accurate RTLS solution. Extricom access points have been integrated with the Ekahau RTLS to allow customers to accurately locate high-value assets and people and track Wi-Fi enabled devices. By leveraging their Wi-Fi network, organizations can reduce RTLS deployment costs while at the same time achieve a much faster RTLS roll-out.
The award-winning Extricom Wireless LAN System incorporates multiple breakthrough innovations in a system that raises the bar for WLAN performance, flexibility, and ease of ownership. Groundbreaking architectural thinking gives you a solution that is fully IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n -compliant, but changes all of the paradigms about the Wi-Fi experience.

At the heart of the Extricom solution is a simple yet powerful idea: eliminate the concept of cell-planning, and replace it with Channel Blanket™ architecture. In the Channel Blanket, each Wi-Fi radio channel is used on every access point to create continuous "blankets" of coverage.
In addition to tracking Wi-Fi enabled devices, such as tablets and smartphones, The Extricom-Ekahau solution can track small, battery-powered Wi-Fi tags that can be mounted to high-value assets or carried by people. Wristwatch sized and credit-card sized tags are available for providing improved safety and security to staff and the credit-card sized tag also acts as a Wi-Fi pager with two-way communications, and an OLED display.
Unlike RFID which is limited to tracking tags only where the RFID readers are, the Extricom-Ekahau solution can track the tags and devices anywhere within the facility, in real-time. The Extricom-Ekahau solution is available today from Extricom sales representatives globally.
