Ericsson introduces Mobile Positioning System
Posted: 05-Jun-2000 [Source: Ericsson press release]

[Ericsson's MPS system uses existing GSM phones to provide a platform for location-based services.]

Ericsson announces the first commercial deployments of its Mobile Positioning System - a system that opens the door to a whole new range of location-based services such as emergency, fleet management, logistics and information services.

The Ericsson Mobile Positioning System (MPS) is a server-based solution that allows positioning services to be introduced into a standard GSM network. The system is built on a highly tolerant platform, capable of using a range of different positioning methods such as assisted Global Positioning System and others.

In May this year, EMT (Estonia) became the world's first operator to offer commercial services based on the MPS and a number of other operators on four continents will introduce MPS into their systems during 2000.

Ericsson's MPS for GSM operators requires no modifications to standard GSM phones. The Ericsson MPS provides operators and users maximum service flexibility and allows GSM operators to easily reach 100 percent of their market.
