Touting one of the wireless industry’s most comprehensive location
Solutions, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in
wireless communication systems and products, has upgraded its GeoLENs®
Mobile Location Center (MLC) to Version 10.1 with additional and
“GeoLENs MLC 10.1 will continue to enable commercial, emergency, and
security location-based applications in wireless networks on what we
believe is the widest range of positioning capabilities available from a
single vendor on a common platform,” said John Baker, vice president and
general manager, Network Solutions, Andrew. “The Version 10.1 upgrade
makes it possible for operators to deploy such services on larger
networks with additional positioning technologies, enhanced performance,
and the potential to share infrastructure.”
GeoLENs MLC 10.1 can support networks of up to two million cells,
intended for operators whose network footprints continue to grow with
macro base stations and micro sites such as femtocells. The MLC 10.1
adds a new positioning technology—enhanced cell ID for GSM EDGE and UMTS
3G networks— to its host of supported
location technologies. This new locating function can act as a
secondary option to assisted GPS (A-GPS), a locating technology for
which MLC 10.1 has also enhanced its performance. The GeoLENs MLC 10.1
can also be leveraged by multiple operators for sharing network
infrastructure, reducing capital and operating expenses without
sacrificing performance or functionality.
“We already are seeing top tier customers intent on deploying the MLC
10.1 based on the increased number of sites it can support, the addition
of enhanced cell ID, and its sharing potential,” said Baker.
GeoLENs MLC 10.1 is a complete location system that supports both
gateway and serving functions for emergency, commercial, and security
location-based applications. GeoLENs MLC 10.1 supports handset-based,
network-based, and hybrid locating technologies for 2G and 3G
access—specifically, cell identity (CID), enhanced-CID, A-GPS, uplink
time difference of arrival (U-TDOA) and multiple range estimation
location (MREL) on the traffic channel, and angle of arrival (AOA).
GeoLENs MLC 10.1 gives operators the flexibility to add or refocus their
location system as their needs change and as market directions clarify.
GeoLENs MLC 10.1 is generally available now.
