Link Labs, a provider of an end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) platform for locating, managing and monitoring equipment, supplies and assets has announced the release of its next-generation IoT asset tracking platform for campus-based environments AirFinder OnSite.
The company said in a press release that the new platform “dramatically” improved accuracy and affordability. AirFinder OnSite is the first enterprise Real-Time Location System (RTLS) that provides sub-meter accuracy by using a Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) radio to support both Bluetooth LE and phase ranging, claimedLink Labs.
AirFinder OnSite is ideal for IoT tracking in distribution centers and warehouses. It’s also suitable for various IoT applications in manufacturing, healthcare and supply chain and logistics management, among others. It does not require an internal WiFi system and is capable of operating on its own secure network layer via Link Labs’ Symphony Link or other third-party network layer technology, such as Bluetooth mesh technologies. AirFinder is rapidly deployable and highly scalable – it uses significantly less infrastructure than other systems—which accelerates IoT deployment to just days, not months, said Link Labs.
