At Polaris Wireless we innovate with a purpose: to solve important, yet complex, business challenges for our customers in public safety and other industries that rely on accurate 3D location. Our goal is to keep the world and our communities safe and to aid businesses that rely on accurate indoor 3D location to operate better and more efficiently.
Founded in 1999 in the heart of Silicon Valley, Polaris Wireless was born out of a big idea—to provide law enforcement and government agencies simple and highly scalable location-based public safety solutions that make communities safer.
The Company’s claim to fame was the invention and introduction of the highly accurate, software-based Wireless Location Signatures—Polaris WLS™--location technology. It proved to be a game changer for the public safety industry after successful field trials in the United States and Europe resulted in the Company’s first contact with SunCom (now part of T-Mobile USA) in 2003.
Since then, Polaris Wireless has continued to expand its patent portfolio and public safety due to our unique WLS technology. In 2013, we also won public safety deployments in Asia-Pacific and a commercial LBS deployment with Globe Telecom in the Philippines.
A testament to our culture of innovation, Polaris Wireless was the recipient of the 2011 and 2013 Frost & Sullivan Location-Based Services Enabling Technology Award, and continued its profitable growth validated by the company’s first appearance on the 2012 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. Most recently, Polaris Wireless received the 2017 Mobility Award for Mobile Software Indoor Positioning Systems. We have more than 96 patents in our technology portfolio and 50 deployments worldwide. And we continue to fuel innovation in the industry by partnering with top universities and academic thought leaders from Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, MIT and more, to stay on the cutting-edge of 3D location innovation and research.
Our mission at Polaris Wireless is to extend our leadership in cutting-edge, highly scalable and 3D location-based technologies, and to innovate solutions for Public Safety, Hospitality, Healthcare and other Enterprises around the globe.
