Siemens Selects Ekahau, Site Survey Solutions to Enhance Wi-Fi Offerings

May 23, 2007 - Ekahau Inc., a provider of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) and Wi-Fi planning tools, today announced a worldwide reseller agreement with Siemens Communications Inc., aiming to enable Siemens' customers to cost-effectively deploy integrated location-based mobile business solutions from a single vendor.

The Ekahau RTLS solution, which includes the server engine, battery-powered Wi-Fi tags and application software, reportedly provides enterprise-grade performance over an existing Wi-Fi network. The Ekahau Positioning Engine (EPE) server was designed to track the real-time location of more than 10,000 objects on a single server and calculate up to 600 locations per second.

As a part of the announced partnership, Siemens HiPath Wireless Manager HiGuard has been integrated with Ekahau’s ESS Version 2.2. This combination is said to enable a customer’s site survey data to be directly imported from the ESS into HiGuard. As a result, Siemens' network designers can reportedly reduce the number of site surveys and decrease the cost and time of Wi-Fi infrastructure deployment. Previously, separate site surveys were required for deploying Wi-Fi access points, wireless IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) sensors RFID tags.
