Polaris seals big EMEA surveillance contract
California, May 27, 2012
Polaris Wireless, a leader in software-based wireless location solutions, has inked a significant customer contract, for a multi-million dollar deployment of its location surveillance product suite in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region.
Polaris Wireless high-accuracy location solutions are a vital tool in combating crime and terrorism, and have been extensively deployed since 2003 for public safety applications in the US market, said a company statement.
This deal represents a major increase in Polaris Wireless business, and is the fourteenth deployment of its wireless location surveillance solutions - the Polaris Wireless Altus and OmniLocate - outside the US, and 38th globally.
“We are very pleased to have achieved such a significant company milestone for high-accuracy wireless location surveillance solutions,” remarked Manlio Allegra, the Polaris Wireless CEO and co-founder.
“Our momentum is directly attributed to our unmatched ability to consistently deliver a 2G/3G-compatible (and very soon 4G) high-accuracy, highly-scalable, software-based location solution for public safety and surveillance,” he noted.
The Polaris Wireless Altus application suite is the industry's only software-based surveillance solution that enables accurate mass location - providing users the ability to simultaneously locate all subscribers in a wireless network in real time and on a historical basis.
This unique capability enables functions, such as target identification, tracking via geo-fence, and post-event analytics, which are vital to the anti-crime and anti-terrorism surveillance efforts of Polaris Wireless customers around the world, said Allegra.
“This deal has contributed to the highest revenue-earning year in Polaris Wireless history,” he stated.
“We are exploring several additional opportunities in the international marketplace, and plan to increase our workforce in order to meet the growing demand,” he added.
Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Polaris Wireless is a leader in providing high accuracy, software-based wireless location solutions to wireless operators, law enforcement/ government agencies and location-based application companies.
