Barcelona, ââSpain, Feb. 27, 2019 / PRNewswire / – Sonarax (https://sonarax.com/), the ultrasound communications technology company, is unveiling a new machine-to-machine (m2m) connectivity standard that allows devices to communicate with each other using sound waves. The protocol is the world’s largest infrastructure setup base and works on any device that has a built-in speaker or microphone. Sonarax provides a very reliable alternative for m2m connectivity and it works even when internet, GPS and cellular networks are not available.
The protocol performs pairing between devices and data transfer over encrypted and open channels using sound waves. It enables much easier and faster deployments of m2m applications such as sonic QR codes, mobile payments and identity authentication.
The Sonarax protocol does not require any special hardware and is easy to deploy and use. This protocol can be integrated into any application on various operating systems, including Windows, Android and iOS, and is already built into major sonic processors. Sonarax uses frequencies beyond the threshold of human hearing and can be combined with any audio channel broadcast by the media, including television and others, to introduce additional communication data, such as advertising information, etc.
Sonarax’s ultrasonic technology was designed to provide initial solutions in three main areas:
- Ultrasonic payments: Facilitate secure pairing for mobile payments and contactless interaction with ATMs – already in pilot phase with the world’s leading banks and financial institutions.
- Ultrasonic authentication: Provide a transparent and secure identification solution – a fully developed and out of the box SDK that can be easily integrated and used by any third party application
- Ultrasonic interior positioning: Allows indoor positioning in buildings such as shopping malls and hospitals where GPS stops working. Sonarax is working on implementing its technology for a new inland navigation feature that will be released at a later date.
“We are using the existing sound element to modernize machine-to-machine connectivity so that it improves payment authentication and, for the first time, can also be used for indoor positioning,” explains Benny Saban, CEO of Sonarax. “Sound cannot fail or be compromised and we are excited to finally unveil our product at MWC and lead consumers to integrate the next generation of communication with devices.”
Sonarax presents its technology at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Hall 5 at Stand # 5D81, from February 25-28.
Sonarax is a leading provider of ultrasonic device-to-device connectivity solutions for triggering, identification and authentication. Sonarax has unique expertise and intellectual property to master the field of ultrasound. Sonarax enables out-of-band (OOB) communication, ensuring that, with the least possible intervention, all devices can interact with each other using a sound interface.
