QUALCOMM today announced improved sensitivity, enhanced indoor accuracy and the seamless simultaneous operation of voice and GPS positioning for location-based services and E911 calls. The enhancements to the Company's gpsOne(R) technology are featured on the newly announced Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM(TM)) MSM6125(TM) for CDMA2000(R) 1X networks, providing a cost-effective way to include advanced location-based capabilities on mainstream multimedia handsets and further extending the global ubiquity of wireless location services.

"Powerful new position-location capabilities are now targeted for the everyday consumer and enterprise user, supporting a wide range of applications such as child locators, turn-by-turn navigation, directory services and many other services," said Robert Rovetta, senior director of product management for QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies. "The availability of advanced, integrated features throughout QUALCOMM's product portfolio provides unsurpassed performance and functionality, including capabilities for niche market segments where discrete GPS chipsets used to be an option."

The enhancements to QUALCOMM's gpsOne solution featured on the MSM6125 are also found on the MSM6500(TM) and MSM6550(TM) chipsets for CDMA2000 1xEV-DO networks to give handset manufacturers several compelling options to address the expanding worldwide demand for location solutions. The enhancements include support for Simultaneous-GPS, which provides uninterrupted and seamless operation of GPS with voice-based location services such as voice concierge, roadside assistance and E911. Improved accuracy of navigation applications delivers a better user experience and enables exciting new navigation applications for the consumer and enterprise markets. The gpsOne solution supports both Assisted-GPS to offer increased sensitivity of up to - 159 dBm for more precise location information indoors and in dense urban areas, and Standalone-GPS mode, which extends the service coverage of many location-based service applications to out-of-network areas.
