Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Reston, VA - December 19, 2012 - Ekahau Inc., the leader in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) using Wi-Fi announced today with Meraki, a leader in Cloud Networking, the availability of a cloud-based Wi-Fi RTLS solution for enterprises.

Real-Time Location Systems help decision-makers measure and manage workflows and uncover hidden workflow bottlenecks. The Ekahau and Meraki cloud-based RTLS solution shortens deployment time and reduces costs with Ekahau’s software-based RTLS approach and browser-based asset and people location tracking and management capabilities along with Meraki’s cloud managed wireless access points (APs).

“Our cloud-based networking solution, combined with Ekahau’s technology, makes location tracking of assets and people very cost-effective and simple. We can now deliver a complete RTLS and Wi-Fi solution in a matter of days instead of months,” said Christopher Bockman, Product Manager at Meraki. “By joining forces with Ekahau, we are delivering accurate location technology without unnecessary cost or complexity.”
