PoLTE and Riot Micro LP Location in IoT Systems

By Ken Briodagh January 11, 2018

In a recent release, PoLTE Corporation and Riot Micro announced a technology collaboration to enable ultra-low power LTE Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with accurate location positioning for indoor and outdoor applications. The collaboration combines the advantages of Riot Micro’s RM1000 with those of PoLTE’s recently announced Lite-Touch location architecture.

Riot Micro will support PoLTE’s location interface in the RM1000, the industry’s lowest power baseband modem chip for the cellular IoT. Riot Micro’s innovative design approach can cut the power consumption of similar modem chips in half, at price points comparable to short-range wireless systems.

“The recent advances in our architecture allowed us to collaborate with an innovative company like Riot Micro to reduce the costs and power consumption of location positioning for connected devices such as wearables, logistics tags, sensors and more,” said John Dow, CEO, PoLTE Corp. “Simple to deploy and system agnostic, our solution is designed to be highly efficient and accurate for the Cat-M category of LTE chip-sets that Riot Micro specializes in, enhancing its value to the cellular IoT market.”

With support for PoLTE’s location interface, on-board modem data can be easily off-loaded to PoLTE cloud servers. From the cloud, PoLTE’s location engine will then accurately calculate location positioning of devices which would otherwise be constrained and hindered by processing power, memory, battery life, costs and size.

LPWAN Expo, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, January 22 to 25, will address the best practice sin leveraging low-power networks for IoT applications. Register now.

“PoLTE’s technology is a perfect complement to our low-power chip-set design philosophy, and will open the doors for many OEMs seeking location positioning capabilities for their IoT and mobile devices,” said Peter Wong, CEO, Riot Micro. “The collaboration helps us meet our goal to offer affordable and ultra-low power chips that also incorporate the latest advanced features.”
