Polte Proximity Leverages 4G and 5G Mobile IoT Networks

4G and 5G Mobile IoT Networks: Polte Corporation, expert on Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, just introduced Polte Proximity, a solution that delivers secure social distancing and contact tracing to support organizations returning to work safely amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With no need for added infrastructure or application downloads to employee phones, Polte Proximity leverages centralized management within Polte Cloud – an asset tracking platform that enables rapid deployment and automates safety protocol compliance.
“People are the most important assets of any organization. We realized that Polte’s asset tracking solution was easily adapted to create a better, more secure way for organizations to allow their people to feel more confident about going back to work,” explained Polte CEO Ed Chao.

We are excited to accelerate an organization’s ability to automate monitoring of new safety policies while empowering employees as part of the new normal in business operations.

The Polte Proximity solution consists of these components:

  • A small, lightweight, rechargeable Mobile IoT device worn together with an employee’s existing ID badge or facility access card.
  • The Polte IoT Cloud combined with actionable analytics accessible from a standard web browser.
  • Polte Proximity devices securely connect to ubiquitous 4G LTE and 5G cellular networks and cloud computing infrastructure. It can contact traced employees indoors, outdoors and between company facilities. Devices connect right out of the box – without need for beacons or other infrastructure. Employees may press a button on the Mobile IoT sensor to immediately and privately notify their employer of unsafe conditions in any area of a company facility, indoors or outdoors. Since Polte Proximity utilizes a low-cost dedicated device, the device can be left at the office or turned off when an employee goes home.

We’re excited for Polte Proximity to help protect our employees. By providing proof of location of the events, we are enabled to enforce our social distancing policies and perform contact tracing if needed,

Teltech Group President Mike Meagher said.

This will direct us if it’s necessary to further spread apart workstations or stagger shifts, as well as incentivize social distancing without requiring additional management time and oversight on the floor.

Polte promised to donate half of the profits from Polte Proximity in 2020 to COVID-19 relief efforts. To learn more about Polte Proximity and how it works, you may use this link.
