Polte and Altair Semiconductor Embed Location Services on Cellular IoT Chipset

Polte Corporation, a leading innovator in accurate Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, and Altair Semiconductor, a leading provider of cellular IoT chipsets, today announced a collaboration to integrate Polte’s cellular-based location technology with Altair’s ALT1250 cellular IoT chipset.  

The ALT1250 is Altair’s dual-mode CAT-M& NB-IoT solution. It is the market’s smallest and most highly integrated commercially available cellular IoT chipset, featuring ultra-low power consumption, GNSS location positioning, a hardware-based security framework, and an RF front-end supporting all commercial LTE bands. Enabling miniature module sizes of less than 100 square millimeters, the ALT1250 is ideally suited for a range of industrial and commercial IoT applications.

Polte’s patented Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) solution leverages ubiquitous 4G & 5G cellular networks and cloud computing to enable highly accurate location data indoors and outdoors. Business processes, customer self-service automation, and better decision making insights enable consumer, commercial, and industrial businesses to capitalize on location, which is essential to how we all work, live, and play.  
 
“With the explosive demand for smaller and low powered IoT devices, Polte’s C-LoC technology is a great complement to the integrated GPS and GNSS capabilities of our dual-mode ALT1250 chipset,” said Oded Melamed, CEO of Altair Semiconductor. “Location is a key function in numerous IoT applications, such as smart meters, telematics, and trackers, where low power and small form factor are crucial. We look forward to the opportunity of working with Polte to offer our customers the best solutions to meet their needs.”

 “Polte is poised to disrupt the location services market. As more and more IoT use cases demand indoor, outdoor, and everywhere in-between location, Polte’s software-only solution embedded on Altair’s dual-mode ALT1250 chipset delivers location services – at a lower cost, using less battery, more securely,” said Polte CEO Ed Chao. “We are excited about the opportunity to bring the power of Polte’s location services platform to Altair’s leading Cellular IoT chipset.”
