Location-Based Systems in Enterprise and Critical Infrastructure

Manlio Allegra, Chief Executive Officer of Polaris Wireless will be speaking at IWCE session title, "Location-Based Systems in Enterprise and Critical Infrastructure"

Location-Based Service applications can provide an organization with a wide variety of quantifiable benefits, from productivity improvements for field service workers to increased security within campus environments. Presence and location information can be utilized to optimize mobile communications by conveying important information about employees - from technicians to first responders, their whereabouts and their current availability. This capability enables users to interact more efficiently and streamlines communications, increasing accessibility and the ability to interact in a timely manner. In addition, review a case study that includes LMR, mobile mesh and interoperability with voice, sensors, video and location-based command-and-control, and other applications of LBS including Child-Finder.

As wireless networks proliferate, the service area is no longer defined by local coverage areas but by the network on which the call is made. Cellular, IP networks, nationwide PBX systems have made it increasingly difficult for local responders to fix where a caller actually IS. There is a need for high-accuracy location solution to effectively support the 9-1-1 call generated by non-land lines. Discuss in this interactive session.
