Mountain View, California, United States:

Polaris Wireless, the global leader in high-accuracy, software-based wireless location solutions, has announced a significant customer contract, for a multi-million dollar deployment of the Polaris Wireless Altus and OmniLocate location surveillance product suite in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region. This deal represents a major increase in Polaris Wireless business, and is the fourteenth deployment of the Polaris Wireless high-accuracy wireless location surveillance solution outside the US, and thirty-eighth globally. Polaris Wireless high-accuracy location solutions are a vital tool in combating crime and terrorism, and have been extensively deployed since 2003 for public safety applications in the US market.

“We are very pleased to have achieved such a significant company milestone for high-accuracy wireless location surveillance solutions,” said Manlio Allegra, Polaris Wireless CEO and co-founder. “Our momentum is directly attributed to our unmatched ability to consistently deliver a 2G/3G-compatible (and very soon 4G) high-accuracy, highly-scalable, software-based location solution for public safety and surveillance.”

The Polaris Wireless Altus application suite is the industry's only software-based surveillance solution that enables accurate mass location - providing users the ability to simultaneously locate all subscribers in a wireless network in real time and on a historical basis. This unique capability enables functions, such as target identification, tracking via geo-fence, and post-event analytics, which are vital to the anti-crime and anti-terrorism surveillance efforts of Polaris Wireless customers around the world.

“This deal has contributed to the highest revenue-earning year in Polaris Wireless history,” continued Allegra. “We are exploring several additional opportunities in the international marketplace, and plan to increase our workforce in order to meet the growing demand.”

To maximize its accuracy location performance, the Altus application suite is being deployed with the OmniLocate platform powered by Polaris Wireless Location Signatures (WLSTM), the most accurate software-based location method for dense urban and indoor environments. Polaris WLS is capable of locating a wireless device to within 40 meters for the majority of the calls and helps customers avoid the costly and time-consuming deployment and maintenance associated with hardware-based location solutions. Polaris Wireless provides its customers regular product enhancements and updates, and 24/7 technical and operational support for optimal performance. Polaris Wireless partners with multi-billion dollar global systems integrators able to carry out its deployments in the largest markets in the world.
