Helicomm demonstrates wireless solution for public safety, logistics, asset-management, and healthcare applications at Sensors Expo & Conference 2006.

CARLSBAD, Calif. /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Helicomm, a leading wireless networking solutions provider, announced that it will demonstrate the integrated platform for wireless sensor-monitoring and location-tracking applications at Sensors Expo in Rosemont, Ill., June 5-7 in Booth #517.

This solution targets applications in several markets, including public safety, logistics, asset management, and healthcare. Customers in these markets need a reliable, scalable, and ease-of-deployment wireless infrastructure to monitor sensory data and track asset location.

Helicomm's new platform consists of wireless mesh access points, low-power mobile tags, and an application management–tool interface that enables customers to quickly integrate and deploy wireless sensory networks. This innovative system seamlessly integrates various types of sensors, such as temperature, pressure, smoke, and gas. With its mesh networking capability, the system performs reliably even under complex and challenged environments.

"We are pleased to participate in Sensors Expo and show our wireless sensor monitoring and location tracking systems," said Helicomm president, Jack Sun. "The integration of a mesh sensory network with the wireless location tracking solution will provide niche value for markets in public safety, logistics, asset management, and healthcare," he added.

Helicomm's location access point uses mesh technology and requires no wiring during installation. Thirty access points can cover a maximum 4 million square-foot area. The management-tool API seamlessly integrates third-party graphic and database tools. The system is currently under customer trials in the target markets of public safety, logistics, asset management, and healthcare. An overview of Helicomm's tracking system can be found at the company's Web site.
