Canadian telecommunications provider adds AirPatrol’s location-based mobile solutions to its Internet of Things online market
Sysorex (NASDAQ:SYRX) subsidiary AirPatrol Corporation, which develops mobile device detection and locationing systems, today announced it has signed TELUS (TSX: T, NYSE: TU), Canada’s fastest-growing national telecommunications company, to resell AirPatrol products via the TELUS Internet of Things (IoT) Marketplace. The agreement, effective immediately, enables TELUS to offer AirPatrol’s mobile device security platform, ZoneDefense, and its location-based services system, ZoneAware, to business customers throughout Canada.
AirPatrol’s core Zone technology is built on a network of paperback book sized sensors that can be mounted indoors or outdoors. The sensors “listen” for the radio frequencies regularly broadcast by cellular phones and WiFi devices and, based on the emissions pattern and location, can uniquely identify and locate a mobile device within a few feet. If the mobile device has an app registered with AirPatrol Zone platform, that app can trigger special security policies, deliver content, and interact with other devices based on factors such as the location, personal preferences, privacy and security policies and proximity to others.
The company has two main product lines built on its technology. ZoneDefense is a mobile device security system that detects and monitors cellular and WiFi devices and triggers specific security policies based on the identity of the device and its location. ZoneDefense customers include federal government agencies, universities, hospitals, financial firms and global enterprises among others. The company’s ZoneAware system provides commercial and marketing location-based services such as people counting, foot traffic analytics, discount offers and loyalty program delivery. The ZoneAware system is designed for retailers, resort and hotel operators, theme parks, commercial property managers and similar markets.
The TELUS IoT Marketplace is an online space offering turnkey IoT solutions from cutting-edge innovators and industry-leading technology companies. For businesses, it simplifies the complexity of IoT and allows them to quickly deploy solutions to help reduce costs and enhance efficiency, productivity and profitability. For developers and IoT technology providers, the marketplace provides an instant sales channel, lead generation, and the support of TELUS’ sales and marketing teams.
AirPatrol’s solutions are currently available through TELUS sales representatives and the TELUS IoT Marketplace. For more information, please contact TELUS or visit http://iot.telus.com.
