From NimbeLink: "NimbeLink and Polte Team Up on Location Technologies for IoT Asset Tracking"
Polte Corporation, the leader in advanced Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) solutions, and NimbeLink, a leading provider of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and services, today announced a new initiative to embed Polte’s location software on NimbeLink’s AT2 and AT4 asset trackers. NimbeLink will leverage Polte’s agreement with Sequans to embed Polte software on the Sequans (NYSE: SQNS) Monarch platform.
NimbeLink’s newly launched AT4 is a compact, rechargeable, dust and water-resistant asset tracker. The AT4 operates from -20°C to +60°C and features the latest LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular technology, as well as Wi-Fi for both indoor and outdoor environments. The AT2 series features a ruggedized enclosure with temperature, humidity and motion sensors for a broad range of use cases. The series is configured to work on GPS, Wi-Fi and cellular networks in the US and Europe.
Polte’s C-LoC solution leverages available 4G & 5G signals and the cloud to enable highly-accurate location indoors and outdoors. Polte’s patented algorithms offload location calculations from the device and compute in the cloud instead reducing time- to-market while significantly outperforming other cellular location solutions available in the market.
Polte CEO Ed Chao explained, “NimbeLink’s robust AT2 and AT4 asset trackers are ideally suited for Polte’s software-only C-LoC technologies, which will enhance the capabilities of NimbeLink’s trackers.” Chao continued, “The demand for cost effective, long battery life IoT trackers will continue to rise dramatically, and rapid time-to-market and easy-to-deploy IoT solutions will be a key driver for the marketplace.”
Scott Schwalbe, CEO and Co-Founder of NimbeLink, said, “Polte’s ability to hybridize with GPS and Wi-Fi on our AT2 and AT4 asset trackers makes their C-LoC solution especially interesting to add a rich feature set to our devices.” Schwalbe continued, “We’re intrigued to explore leveraging the advantages of Polte’s CAT-M cellular IoT solution to help deliver IoT devices that are cost effective with a long battery life.”
Polte will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Feb 25-28, where NimbeLink’s devices can be seen. For more information, visit polte.com.
