Airista Acquires Ekahau's RTLS Division
The company intends to continue offering existing Ekahau Wi-Fi-based tags and real-time location system software, and will collaborate with Ekahau's engineers on future products.
Mar 04, 2016—
Wi-Fi location services company Airista Flow, a real-time location system (RTLS) technology division of Airista, has purchased Ekahau's RTLS U.S. and International divisions, based in Reston, Va., and Helsinki, Finland. The acquisition closed on March 2.
Ekahau's other division, Ekahau Site Survey (ESS)—which sells Wi-Fi design tools for site surveys, including spectrum analyzers and Wi-Fi signal-mappers—will continue to operate independently, and will keep selling its line of non-RTLS Wi-Fi-based products, says Emily Nardone, Ekahau ESS' product marketing director.
Airista makes asset- and personnel-tracking solutions employing passive, active and semi-active RFID technology, as well as RTLS solutions and GPS, for the health-care, oil and gas, logistics, assisted-living and other sectors.
