Wireless Location-Based Services Briefing

2 hours
Accuracy of location information within three feet or less can be achieved with location-enabled technologies such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) or Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) and BLE. Which technology will best suit your location-based business drivers will be as unique as your business.


Location, location, location. Many applications today require location information in order to provide the correct context. Whether it is locating assets or goods in factory or individuals in an office for social distancing and contract tracing, location is important. WWT can help you choose from the many different location technologies and mediums available to custom fit your use cases.

A real-time location system (RTLS) is a term to describe a variety of technologies that can detect the current geolocation of a device. The device could be anything from a vehicle to an item in a manufacturing plant to a person.

This briefing covers a range of topics including:

  • Defining real-time location system (RTLS)
  • Wi-Fi coverage vs. RTLS design
  • RTLS technologies
  • Wireless managed services use cases
  • Location-aware analytics
  • Blue dot wayfinding
  • Customer experience with application development
  • BLE Beacons
  • RFID tags

What's next? 

Following a briefing, WWT will work with your key stakeholders and uncover a common understanding of your business drivers which leverage RTLS. This could be under the header of a Wireless Strategy Workshop, a Wireless Location Based Services Workshop or creation of a Lab as a Service Environment. The information gathered during the workshop will be transformed into a comprehensive strategy and outlined technology requirements for a location-based solution that addresses your business drivers/challenges.

We know that deploying wireless can be complex. WWT offers a number of workshops and customized lab or proof of concept environments in our Advanced Technology Center. We can also support onsite wireless services for site surveys, workshops or briefings. Our Integrated Technology Center can help speed staging and deployment, or our managed services offerings could enable you to offload the ongoing operations of your wireless infrastructure to us.
