Polaris Wireless Builds Wireless Location Systems with RadiSys ATCA

Polaris Wireless, which supplies high-accuracy, software-based wireless location solutions, is leveraging Radisys' AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform solution for OmniLocate, its universal location platform, which network operators and government agencies rely on to enable public safety, surveillance and other location-based services.

Specifically, Polaris Wireless is using Radisys' ATCA platform to improve scalability and upgradeability of its OmniLocate platform for emergency call management (E911) and security applications. The company was able to convert to the Radisys x86 solution in less than six months and reduce its costs significantly. In addition, Polaris Wireless was able to enhance OmniLocate performance threefold using the latest processor technology. The Radisys blade server approach enables Polaris Wireless to upgrade its OmniLocate platform performance based on the Intel roadmap by simply swapping blades.
