December 7, 2010 - Santa Clara, California, United States And Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Polaris Wireless, the global leader in high-accuracy, software-based wireless location solutions, has announced that it has opened a regional headquarters in Dubai Internet City, Dubai, U.A.E. to serve the growing demand from customers in the Middle East and Africa regions. Alongside previous entries into Japan, India, and Latin America, this opening is part of the company’s strategy to expand its international operations. Polaris Wireless has increased its overall business revenues by 40 percent since its first overseas deployment, in early 2009. The business opportunity for Polaris Wireless is growing worldwide, following the global trend of wireless operators and government agencies partnering to deploy high-accuracy location solutions for lawful location surveillance and emergency call applications.

“Polaris Wireless is very pleased to be opening a regional headquarters in Dubai to support our global expansion,” said Bashar Zako, regional vice president for Polaris Wireless in the MEA region. “We look forward to establishing a presence alongside other leading technology companies in this dynamic business and transportation hub to build on the success we have already achieved at an international level.”

The company is a leader in enabling real-time, high-accuracy location to assist authorized law enforcement agencies (LEA’s) in criminal investigations and antiterrorist activities. The easy to deploy, easy to maintain, Polaris Wireless Location Signatures (Polaris WLS™) solution identifies the location of a wireless device to within 50 meters and delivers the best software-based location in dense urban and indoor environments. Polaris Wireless is the only company capable of implementing a high accuracy mass location surveillance capability. The Polaris WLS solution gives customers the ability to conduct geo-fencing, post-event analytics, and predictive intelligence using mass location surveillance. It is equally ideal for emergency call applications and can be deployed as a standalone system or in combination with existing handset-based technologies to allow international wireless operators to quickly and cost-effectively introduce an emergency call solution for public safety.

The Polaris WLS solution is software-based, avoiding the costly and time-consuming maintenance associated with hardware-based location solutions. Polaris Wireless also provides its international customers regular product enhancements and updates, and 24/7 technical and operational support to better monitor and improve the performance of its solutions. Zako added, “With the opening of our Dubai office, Polaris Wireless introduces local resources to the proactive post-sales support and ongoing services that our MEA region customers already receive.”

The Polaris WLS solution is designed to scale as an operator’s network grows, providing location capabilities in 2G (GSM/CDMA), 3G (UMTS/WCDMA) and emerging 4G (LTE) air interfaces. Polaris Wireless ensures that an operator’s critical ability to accurately locate all wireless devices will evolve alongside its network evolution.
