AeroScout and Aruba
With Aruba and AeroScout, an organization can securely run existing mobile applications and add location-based applications on the same wireless network. Enabling mobile data, voice and location services on a single network offers greater efficiency and more cost-effectiveness than trying to accomplish the same goal using independent dedicated systems. Aruba infrastructure recognizes and communicates with AeroScout’s Wi-Fi-based Active RFID tags, and can transmit the location of these tags to AeroScout MobileView enterprise software. AeroScout and Aruba joint solutions increase productivity, eliminate theft and loss, and provide valuable visibility of assets in industries such as healthcare, retail, warehousing and more.

Insiteo delivers indoor geo-location services for smartphones. The solution combines indoor position location via Wi-Fi with a mobile application to locate the user’s position and nearby points of interest – or directions to those locations – on a map. Target markets include large public venues such as shopping centers, airports, metro and train stations, convention centers, museums, and hotels. For more information please visit www.insiteo.com.
Insiteo and Aruba
Insiteo and Aruba have teamed to provide a powerful indoor location solution for smartphones that leverages the Aruba Wi-Fi beacons for position information. The smartphones collect position information from the Wi-Fi network and forward it to the hosted server, which then calculates the user’s position. The central server can interface with added-value applications, which are then pushed to the user. For example, customer retention can be enhanced by pushing coupons for services to patrons that approach exits, or patrons can be guided to vendors that pay for enhanced exposure.
