Ubisense releases world’s first UWB real-time location system certified for use in both US...


21-08-2007

Taking advantage of common US and EU ultra-wideband (UWB) regulations, Ubisense has developed its new Series 7000 UWB real-time location system (RTLS) for both geographic markets and has now released the product after completing extensive production testing with customers on both sides of the Atlantic.

"Production installations of the Ubisense Series 7000 system offer our customers much greater range, lower infrastructure cost and a much lower sensor density than legacy WiFi and active RFID solutions while offering an order of magnitude greater accuracy", observes Udo Rieger, General Manager of eseg, the Germany-based logistics security company.

"We have been installing Series 7000 systems at the rate of one production site a week, which is truly amazing in a marketplace littered with failed projects. The Ubisense solution is the first RTLS we have seen that can be installed and in production in our customers’ very large distribution centres in days, enabling them to realise ROI in less than 12 months."

"The feedback from our customers and partners regarding the reliability and increased performance of the new system has been fantastic, so now is the time to make it generally available and to fulfil a growing backlog of production orders", says Richard Green, CEO of Ubisense. “Ours is the first solution which is both FCC- and CE-compliant, and is the first to meet the ETSI EN302500 standard for UWB location systems, enabling us to satisfy growing demand in both Europe and the US.”

Raghu Das, CEO of RFID Industry experts IDTechEx, comments: “With the RTLS market poised to grow significantly, Ubisense’s delivery of production installations is a real beacon for the industry as a whole. I congratulate the Ubisense team on their achievements and will watch them with interest as their customers realise enormous productivity gains through use of their system."
