ANNAPOLIS, MD. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 21, 2021 - Marking a significant leap forward for real-time asset location and tracking technology, Link Labs’ AirFinder OnSite is a next-generation IoT asset tracking platform for indoor environments that dramatically improves accuracy and affordability
Link Labs, a leading provider of an end-to-end IoT platform for locating, managing and monitoring equipment, supplies and assets anywhere at any time, today announced its AirFinder OnSite™ IoT asset tracking platform is the winner of the 2021 IoT Platform of the Year award presented by Mobile Breakthrough Awards. In receiving this accolade, Link Labs is recognized alongside an impressive list of top companies and startups in the mobile, wireless and IoT community.
“We are honored to be recognized by Mobile Breakthrough Awards for our next-generation IoT asset tracking platform, AirFinder OnSite,” said Bob Proctor, co-founder and CEO of Link Labs. “This distinction is a testament to our commitment to creating highly accurate, energy efficient RTLS that provide affordable asset tracking and monitoring capabilities for campus-based environments."
Launched in March 2021, Link Labs’ AirFinder OnSite is a next-generation IoT asset tracking platform for indoor environments that dramatically improves accuracy and affordability. The first enterprise IoT platform to achieve up to meter-level location accuracy, AirFinder OnSite makes it possible for companies of all sizes to track thousands to millions of high-value assets with an unprecedented high degree of accuracy, unmatched power efficiency and affordable cost.
AirFinder OnSite features six patented innovations at the firmware level that cover an array of technical challenges that need to be met for an enterprise-grade solution – including ranging methodology, interference avoidance, location algorithm, power efficiency and scalability to high-tag densities. Together, these innovations allow asset location to be fine-tuned to meter-level accuracy, making it the most precise Bluetooth-based location technology available.
With Link Labs’ proprietary Xtreme Low Energy (XLE) innovation to determine location, battery life of AirFinder OnSite tags has been extended by more than 400%, or approximately 5-7 years without needing replacement, compared to proximity-based location systems. This allows tags with very small batteries to last for up to seven years for use cases such as finding assets in large manufacturing or distribution environments. Small items such as tools and calibrated instruments can now be tracked as easily as carts, inventory and work-in-progress (WIP). Natively intelligent in every aspect, OnSite drives tangible and measurable business impacts from IoT implementations, making it ideal for IoT asset tracking in facilities with large footprints, such as distribution centers, warehouses, manufacturing sites and hospitals, among others.
The annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards program recognizes the top companies, products, innovation and people in the mobile and wireless industries around the globe. This year’s program attracted over 2,600 nominations from around the world. Winners are selected by an independent panel of experts within the mobile technology industry, with representation from a cross-section of industry experts.
