Inpixon joins Nokia programme driving indoor positioning

By Nick Flaherty

Analytics software developer Inpixon is joining the ng Connect Program, founded by Nokia, to create new 5G technologies for indoor positioning.

Inpixon aims to supply the benefits of sensor technology, real-time positioning, and data analytics to customers across numerous industries by collaborating with other members in financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, energy, retail and government agencies. Its sensors are designed to find all accessible cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth devices anonymously. Paired with a high performance, data analytics platform this technology delivers visibility, security, and business intelligence.

Inpixon's Indoor Positioning Analytics (IPA) includes positioning, device recognition, device reputation, visitor analytics, and location intelligence for the implementation of IoT and 5G systems. This will bring new security to IoT devices and improved user experiences to customers across smart buildings, manufacturing operations, healthcare facilities, retailers, shopping malls, and government agencies says the company.

“The ng Connect Program represents substantial engagement opportunities for us across the IoT and 5G community members to deliver rich positional context and analytics platform for any location-based applications,” said Craig Harper, Inpixon CTO. “Nokia has a historical reputation of working with carriers and partners to offer their customers unique products. We’re eager to capitalize this opportunity and make our IPA platform part of both the IoT and 5G communities.”

The Inpixon IPA software improves visibility into the network and total enterprise, multiplying a security team’s effect by positioning trusted devices and uncovering potential threats. Its sensors passively and anonymously monitor of both known and unknown devices, sending alerts in real-time when unauthorized devices enter a protected zone. Inpixon’s data science analytics platform enables administration, real-time monitoring, data collection, auditing and analytics reporting, including connectors to integrate other surveillance, device management, and identity management systems.
The ng Connect Program has more than 375 collaborating members -
