is making it possible for mobile operators to finally realize the
promise of mobile location technology and maximize their investment in
wireless location systems. With GeoLENs®Locate™, the newest offering from the CommScope
family of location technologies, carriers can now support targeted
emergency messaging for public safety communication and opt-in mobile
marketing opportunities, as well as social networking and enterprise
Currently, mobile location capabilities are primarily limited to
determining and updating the location of a specific subscriber’s mobile
device in response to an emergency call, “friend-finder” request, or
other location-based application. GeoLENs Locate goes beyond that to
deliver a comprehensive, real-time means of integrating multiple
subscriber locations and allowing highly-defined, area-targeted
messaging and more value-added services. GeoLENs Locate accomplishes
this by combining high-performance area location geofencing software
and active, specific location updating support from CommScope
GeoLENs Mobile Location Centers.
“GeoLENs Locate is aimed at changing the game for mobile location
because it strips away the remaining technical challenges preventing
operators from delivering the next evolution of targeted messaging and
location-based services,” said John
Baker, vice president and general manager, Network Solutions,
Technology agnostic, GeoLENs Locate is designed to access and use
virtually any mobile location method supported by the service provider’s
network. In the case of a public safety incident, for example, GeoLENs
Locate establishes a coarse view of the users within a geographic area
defined by civil authorities. Active location then identifies which
mobile devices are within or near this “virtual perimeter,” and law
enforcement can route emergency messages to those devices. Similar
techniques can be employed for targeted marketing among opt-in
subscribers and with social applications. The solution is dynamic, yet
engineered to avoid negative impact on network performance. It supports
2G, 3G and 4G mobile phones. Additional features:
Public safety support – GeoLENs Locate’s robust processing and
high-volume capacity powers applications that provides 24/7 readiness
for severe weather warnings, hazardous conditions, Amber alerts and
other emergency situations requiring mass notification to mobiles in
specific geographic areas.
Mobile marketing – GeoLENs Locate lets advertisers and merchants
geographically direct promotional and other messages to mobile users
who have opted-in to receive such services.
Fleet, family and friend tracking – GeoLENs Locate helps business
customers better manage their fleets, suppliers and schedules.
Individual subscribers can also pinpoint the location of their closed
user group of friends, children or elderly parents for connecting on
the go or just to be sure a loved one is safe.
GeoLENs Locate is designed to be deployed with CommScope’s GeoLENs
wireless location systems, which employ a wide range of software-driven
network-based and handset-based location technologies for macro-area, as
well as indoor caller location solutions.
