extensive portfolio of location-based services and technology expanded
from the traditional E911, carrier LBS and mobile apps spaces into areas

drink and food coolers, that would not traditionally be associated with
location-based data. Comtech’s IoT location platforms provide access to
end-to-end location functionalities for building solutions capable of
locating and tracking any device indoors and outdoors, including low
power, low cost devices. Comtech’s location solution is a popular choice
for IoT platforms because it’s signal-agnostic and supports any device
running any operating system over virtually any network.
