Montreal, February 20, 2019 (GlobeNewswire) – Aerial Technologies, the pioneer in wireless motion analytics powered by AI, today announced the launch of its Smart Plug-In device utilizing a 2×2 MIMO chipset from Quantenna (NASDAQ : QTNA), a global leader and innovator of leading-edge performance WiFi solutions. The device was developed in collaboration with Gemtek, a leading Taiwan-based network equipment vendor, to further simplify the deployment of the Aerial WiFi motion detection solution. The Smart Plug-In lets users of the Aerial solution easily connect to their existing access point in a variety of indoor environments, from residential to office spaces and more. Using the existing WiFi as the sensor, Aerial’s AI solution enables motion detection in a multitude of contexts: energy management, hospitality, building management, elderly monitoring and other healthcare applications. Combining WiFi from Quantenna and motion detection from Aerial makes for an unbeatable match that will drive the next generation of motion-enabled solutions.
“This new deployment option provides a streamlined option for customers to integrate our solution. While our core focus is to provide rich motion information through a software platform, we aim to constantly make it easier for our customers and partners to leverage Aerial in their offering,” said Pascal Paradis-Théberge, COO at Aerial. “ISPs and eldercare monitoring and security companies can utilize a white-labeled version of the Smart Plug-In to lower their deployment costs, increase their service offering, and expand their service reach.”
“We believe in the strong potential of leveraging WiFi’s incumbency to develop new services that bring value to consumers,” said Ambroise Popper, Vice President of Strategy & Corporate Marketing at Quantenna. “This Aerial device will allow for rapid access to motion detection to homes, offices, hospitals or hotels.”
Aerial will be demonstrating the Smart Plug-In at their stand during MWC19, to be held in Barcelona between February 25 and 28, 2019. Make sure to stop by for further information. Hall 8, Stand F29.
