It can easily scale to support tens of thousands of tags on a single server. The Ekahau location protocol enables the wireless location tags to function as any standard Wi-Fi device, and therefore makes two-way communication features between the tags and applications possible, such as visual and audible alerts and two-way text messaging for example. Because the Ekahau system relies on existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, superior tracking accuracy is offered.
