LAS VEGAS, July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


Ekahau Inc. today announced that its solutions now qualify for the Cisco Solution Incentive Program (SIP). Ekahau is the world's leading provider of high-performance Wi-Fi based real-time locating systems (RTLS), which can be deployed seamlessly over Cisco Wi-Fi networks.

Ekahau is demonstrating its RTLS solutions at Cisco Live in booth #2151.

Ekahau is known for trouble-free RTLS deployments and for hundreds of satisfied enterprise customers in healthcare, manufacturing, government, logistics and retail industry sectors. Ekahau is a member of Cisco Developer Network (CDN) and its Wi-Fi tags are Cisco CCX certified. In addition, Ekahau RTLS Controller (ERC) software has gone through  rigorous Cisco Assurewave testing for critical industrial environments. With Ekahau RTLS, customers gain enterprise-wide visibility to their critical assets and people in real-time, enabling several compelling business intelligence applications such as:

  • Real-time location and utilization of critical assets
  • Wireless temperature and humidity monitoring
  • Staff safety solutions
  • Work-flow and Lean optimization
  • Geo-fencing and rules-based tracking
  • Dual active and passive RFID tracking
  • Wi-Fi text paging  
  • Infection control monitoring

Unlike competing solutions that often require additional infrastructure installations, Ekahau' s patented technology can be deployed over the existing Cisco Wi-Fi network just by using RTLS software and Wi-Fi tags, enabling the highest possible performance from enterprise-wide visibility to bed-level accuracy.

Cisco SIP incentives and discounts will be honored for all Ekahau RTLS deployments in any country. Moreover, Cisco channel partners can use Ekahau SIP deals to create additional SIPS by bundling Ekahau products with Cisco products for special applications like school safety and healthcare tracking solutions.

Cisco Partners who are interested in registering their sales for SIP consideration should contact Steve Buhler at Ekahau: steve(dot)buhler(at)ekahau.com or telephone +1-440-759-9666.
