By : |May 29, 2012 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: CommScope announced the release of a new software from its GeoLENs portfolio of solutions, GeoLENs Mobile Location Center (MLC) 10.3.

The company claims that the new software release can enable wireless operators to accurately and reliably locate mobile devices connected to LTE networks.

“As operators migrate to higher-bandwidth LTE technology, they remain committed to providing subscribers with the same kinds of location-based services (LBS) that proved successful in 2G and 3G domains,” said John Baker, senior vice president, Network Solutions, CommScope. “With our latest GeoLENs upgrade, there is now a seamless, cost-effective way to add LTE location capability to an existing 2G/3G deployment and immediately extend current LBS offerings in an LTE environment.”

GeoLENs MLC 10.3 arrives just in time to support what industry watchers predict will be a steady upward trajectory for mobile LBS.

Equipped with virtual node technology, the fully-integrated GeoLENs MLC consolidates all of the capabilities of various network location servers – Gateway Mobile Location Center, Serving Mobile Location Center, Enhanced Serving Mobile Location Center, Stand Alone Serving Mobile Location Center and Secure User Plane Location Platform – into one single-bay solution. Each deployment can be customized and configured for the specific network environment, says the company in a release.

GeoLENs MLC supports combinations of handset-based, network-based and hybrid location technologies. When queried for a location, it automatically selects the optimum available locating method based on the specific request, device and sub-network capabilities, adds the release.

The locating methods and procedures available are selected by the network operator and can be augmented as the network evolves. GeoLENs MLC 10.3 allows seamless upgrade of any existing CommScope location solution with no new hardware and is non-service affecting.
