TeleCommunication Systems Deploys Xypoint Location Platform

Dec 03, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- TeleCommunication Systems, Inc., a provider of secure mobile communication technology, announced the successful deployment of its Xypoint Location Platform (XLP), which now supplies nTelos wireless with mobile Location-Based Services (LBS) infrastructure.

The Company reported that the XLP is a standards-based location infrastructure which provides both cell-ID and precise A-GPS location and is hosted in the industry's only TL-9000 certified hosting facility. This hosted solution consists of hardware, software, maintenance and around-the-clock operation. With this all-inclusive LBS infrastructure, nTelos wireless will continue to provide precise location information for applications for its customers while avoiding operational and logistical burdens.

Lynne Seitz, vice president of location products, TCS, said, "It was imperative that nTelos achieve its long-standing commitment to delivering the best customer value and the best customer experience while going through this LBS transition. As other location service providers exit the market, often with little warning, TCS' ability to step in and quickly transition location services has become as valuable to operators as the quality of our technology solutions. We look forward to delivering location services to meet the needs of nTelos for many years to come." Conrad Hunter, chief operating officer, nTelos Wireless, said, "In order to provide our customers with the applications and location-based services they desire, we selected TCS for its easy-to-implement, hosted service to meet our deadline. We are very pleased that TCS has been able to provide our subscribers with access to their favorite LBS applications without interruption."
