Polaris Wireless Joins FCC's Indoor Location Technology Trial

Polaris Wireless has joined an indoor location technology market trial organized by the FCC's Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC).

The trial, which is taking place from November 15 through December 31 in the San Francisco Bay Area. involves the simultaneous testing of indoor location technologies from four leading companies: Polaris Wireless, Qualcomm, Boeing, and NextNav.  The trial aims to identify technologies that can be deployed to enable PSAP’s (Public Safety Answering Points) to quickly and accurately locate emergency callers.

Polaris Wireless is the only network-based location technology provider that is being tested in indoor environments.

Polaris Wireless said one of the leading challenges for public safety responders is how to accurately locate an emergency caller indoors. This challenge will only grow as mobile subscribers increasingly come to rely upon their mobile devices for the vast majority of calls, both indoors and outdoors.

The trial includes Polaris Wireless Location Signatures (Polaris WLSTM), a software- based RF Pattern Matching approach to the high-accuracy location determination problem, requiring no changes in the wireless device or in the wireless service provider’s base stations.

“We are very enthusiastic to participate in the CSRIC trial for indoor location,” said Manlio Allegra, Polaris Wireless CEO and Co-founder. “This vote of confidence reflects our leading-edge location technology performance, especially in indoor environments, through deployments all over the world.”
