ABSTRACT
The article profiles Aeroscout, a provider of enterprise visibility solutions using WiFi wireless networks as an infrastructure. The company is based in San Mateo, California and was founded in 2000.

The company has made its greatest inroads in healthcare and manufacturing, where assets and equipment are expensive or widely dispersed. About half of its customers are in North America, but the company wants to expand into markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
