NimbeLink and Polte Team Up on Location Technologies for IoT Asset TrackingNimbeLink and Polte Team Up on Location Technologies for IoT Asset Tracking

By Ken Briodagh February 21, 2019

Polte Corporation, developer of advanced Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) solutions, and NimbeLink, a provider of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and services, together recently announced a new initiative to embed Polte’s location software on NimbeLink’s AT2 and AT4 asset trackers. NimbeLink will leverage Polte’s agreement with Sequans to embed Polte software on the Sequans Monarch platform.

NimbeLink’s newly launched AT4 is designed to be a compact, rechargeable, dust and water-resistant asset tracker. The AT4 operates from -20°C to +60°C and features the latest LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular technology, as well as Wi-Fi for both indoor and outdoor environments. The AT2 series features a ruggedized enclosure with temperature, humidity and motion sensors for a broad range of use cases. The series is configured to work on GPS, Wi-Fi and cellular networks in the US and Europe.

“NimbeLink’s robust AT2 and AT4 asset trackers are ideally suited for Polte’s software-only C-LoC technologies, which will enhance the capabilities of NimbeLink’s trackers,” said Ed Chao, CEO, Polte. “The demand for cost effective, long battery life IoT trackers will continue to rise dramatically, and rapid time-to-market and easy-to-deploy IoT solutions will be a key driver for the marketplace.”

Polte’s C-LoC solution leverages available 4G & 5G signals and the cloud to enable highly-accurate location indoors and outdoors. Polte’s patented algorithms offload location calculations from the device and compute in the cloud instead reducing time- to-market while significantly outperforming other cellular location solutions available in the market.

“Polte’s ability to hybridize with GPS and Wi-Fi on our AT2 and AT4 asset trackers makes their C-LoC solution especially interesting to add a rich feature set to our devices,” said Scott Schwalbe, CEO and Co-Founder, NimbeLink. “We’re intrigued to explore leveraging the advantages of Polte’s CAT-M cellular IoT solution to help deliver IoT devices that are cost effective with a long battery life.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
