The first installation of Andrew Corporations new platform for mobile caller location is signaling a move to next generation capabilities for handset- and network-based location services.

Andrews next generation Geometrix® Mobile Location Center platform is being installed by a prominent North American operator throughout its network. This platform consolidates all handset- and network-based mobile location methods onto a compact carrier-grade hardware platform, providing operators total flexibility to support location-based services.

Geometrix, the worlds most complete and versatile high-performance wireless location system, now provides unprecedented cost-effectiveness and ease of operation as operators address the evolution to next generation applications for future location-based services with minimum risk or changes to existing network infrastructure.

The Geometrix MLC platform extends Andrews global leadership in offering advanced location technologies to support operators ability to offer location-based services, said Terry Garner, group president, Andrew Network Solutions. We are proud to have delivered the worlds only truly complete wireless location system for operators to meet current and future needs.

Andrews solution consolidates location system elements onto a single platform that lowers cost and eases operator introduction of new revenue-generating services, while simplifying operations.

Operators have made clear their concerns about costly and complex piecemeal location systems that force them to continuously add, replace and revamp their location systems in order to keep pace with technology changes, new services, and growth, said Garner. Andrew is unique in having responded to those concerns with a complete, flexible wireless location solution on a single platform that meets existing needs and is already being installed by operators preparing for the future.

With more than 30 customers around the world, Andrews Geometrix location systems have been installed by more operators than any competing system.

Location-based services are a growing set of innovative value-added applications that are enabled or enhanced with location information. Geometrix precisely meets the location-based service performance, deployment, and cost requirements of operators worldwide. With Geometrix MLC, operators can install a single location system and select the locating technologies that best meet their requirements for cost and location-based service performance.
