Ekahau joins Juniper Networks Technology Alliance Program

Ekahau, a provider of Wi-Fi based Real Time Location
Systems (RTLS), announced it has joined the Juniper Networks Technology
Alliance program as a foundation partner.


Juniper’s family of WLAN controllers and access points
will be integrated with Ekahau‘s
planning and analysis tools to provide even more choice in how network managers
use location services and plan and verify their network coverage.


“This partnership enables enterprise customers to
deploy RTLS applications over their Juniper Wi-Fi networks in a very
cost-effective way,” said Tuomo Rutanen, senior vice president, business


Unlike traditional RFID systems, the Ekahau RTLS system
can leverage Juniper’s wireless networks to derive real-time location, status
and other information about Ekahau Wi-Fi tags without requiring any proprietary
sensors or readers.  


“Together with Ekahau we will continue to deliver
value through reliable, secure wireless solutions such as real time location
services,” said Steve Troyer, vice president of WLAN and Branch Systems,
Juniper Networks


RTLS solutions are being deployed within environments
such as hospitals, warehouses, manufacturing plants, mines, universities, and
entertainment venues to streamline and optimize operations, enhance utilization
of valuable assets and improve the safety of staff and visitors.


Ekahau RTLS can be deployed locally to serve a single
building or campus, or it can be installed in a data center to provide true
enterprise-wide visibility in internal or externally hosted cloud


Earlier, Ekahau announced a strategic cooperation with Cisco Healthcare
in Germany.
