Wireless LAN (WLAN) Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) were introduced as a security feature to assist in identifying and locating security threats such as rogue Access Points (APs). Today's WLAN RTLS has evolved and can now be used as a comprehensive and advanced security tool, as well as a method to locate and track high-value assets.
This research note outlines several key points, such as:
- What WLAN RTLS is and how it works.
- The benefits of RTLS and how it is being used.
- Enterprises that can benefit from implementing the technology.
Small enterprises in the healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics verticals have the most to gain from implementing WLAN RTLS. For these industries, ROI will be high, and payback will be fast.
