By Madhubanti Rudra, TMCnet Contributor
Ekahau Inc., the globally renowned provider of Wi-Fi-based RTLS solutions, announced that its solutions now qualify for the Cisco (News - Alert) Solution Incentive Program (SIP). The company is going to demonstrate its RTLS solutions at Cisco Live in booth #2151.
Ekahau (News - Alert) will be qualified for Cisco SIP incentives and discounts for Ekahau RTLS deployments in any country. Under the incentive program, the Cisco channel partners will be allowed to use Ekahau SIP deals to create additional SIPS by bundling Ekahau products with Cisco products for special applications like school safety and healthcare tracking solutions.
Ekahau has been serving hundreds of high-profile clients in the diverse industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, government, logistics and retail, with its RTLS solutions. The company reportedly earned reputation for its trouble free deployment skills.
Already a member of Cisco Developer Network (CDN) and a Cisco CCX certified Wi-Fi provider, Ekahau RTLS Controller (ERC) software had to go through rigorous Cisco Assurewave testing for critical industrial environments to be qualified for Cisco SIP Incentives.
Accordig to Ekahau, its RTLS solutions have been designed to enable customers gain enterprise-wide visibility to their critical assets and people in real-time. In addition of real time asset monitoring, the solution is claimed to enable several compelling business intelligence applications such as wireless temperature and humidity monitoring, staff safety solutions, work-flow and lean optimization, geo-fencing and rules-based tracking, dual active and passive RFID tracking, Wi-Fi text paging and infection control monitoring
Last month Ekahau announced that, in conjunction with Nordic ID, it has developed a solution for adding location information to passive RFID and barcode labels. The Ekahau-Nordic ID solution is used to track low-cost assets like surgical implements, drug supplies, and other inventory.
