Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality
machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services, today
announced that the Laipac S911 Lola personal locator integrates Jupiter
JF2 and GE865 modules to provide instant location and two-way voice
communications for emergency response to the elderly - ultimately
allowing them to live at home longer and enhancing quality of life.
With current advances in medical technology, the global population is
living longer - creating a sandwich generation of adults caring for
aging parents as well as children. In response, Laipac, longtime experts
in location devices for fleet management, law enforcement and child
safety identified an opportunity to facilitate extended elder autonomy
by applying M2M technology from Telit to create a compact, easy-to-use
device capable of initiating instant two-way communications at the touch
of a button, pinpoint location in the event of an emergency, and even
detect unexpected movement like falls. The unit is small enough to wear
as an unobtrusive pendant, reducing the need for an injured person to
search and find it across the room.
The small size of the Telit GE865 cellular module makes it a perfect fit
for the Lola device. It offers quad-band GSM/GPRS connectivity and very
low power consumption - so the Lola device can be worn all day on a
single charge. The Jupiter JF2 GNSS module is also a super compact, low
power device providing enhanced positioning for the accuracy users
demand in the event of an emergency.
The S911 Lola is available worldwide through a variety of outlets
including, in some regions, from local carriers, through the online
stores of multiple “big box” retailers as well as direct from Laipac.
For less than $20/month, users enjoy unlimited tracking, 100 minutes of
voice and full access to LocationNow, the robust Laipac online tracking
“Due to the growing needs for innovative solutions to elder care issues,
we expect Lola sales to grow significantly this year,” said Diego Lai,
Co-founder of Laipac. “Thanks to the technology and support from Telit,
we are able to offer the perfect compact, affordable and easy-to-use
solution to address this unique need.”
“Telit is proud to be a part of M2M technology-based solutions that
improve quality of life across all kinds of demographics,” said Mike
Ueland, President of Telit Americas. “Laipac is no exception. The Lola
device is ideal for elder care, but also a great business enabler in
situations involving lone workers. It even improves personal safety for
children, extreme athletes and a host of other potential users.”

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
