Sonarax has created the new standard in
digital connectivity and communication: Data-Over-Sound

SONARAX Technology’s proprietary ultrasonic data-over-sound technology enables secure, peer-to-peer communication and connectivity which powers touchless solutions and location-based services through any device with a microphone and a speaker.

SONARAX’s protocol harnesses the power of soundwaves, which are the only connectivity medium that can be contained within a defined location, as they do not travel through walls, ceilings, floors, or dividers.
This empowers the ability to detect the precise location of an audio signal and verifies its precise physical presence.

SONARAX Technology’s platform is able to calculate distance with incredible accuracy by using the doppler effect’s slight modulation in the sound waves. This modulation, in conjunction with SONARAX Technology’s proprietary algorithm, enables the application to measure the distance between users in real-time.

The Sonarax platform also includes native Physical Presence Verification that enables systems to establish a user’s physical presence through a combination of biometric and unique ultrasonic signatures through the user’s mobile device.

Physical Presence Verification is the core technology that powers the accuracy and reliability of solutions such as Touchless Time Attendance, Indoor Positioning, Location-Based Engagements, and Two-Factor Authentication.
