Comtech to Showcase Advanced Location Solutions for Mobile and IoT Ecosystems at MWC18

The Enterprise Technologies group from Comtech Telecommunications will be showcasing its extensive suite of location, messaging and secure wireless technology solutions at Mobile World Congress 2018.

Recognized by ABI Research as a 2018 Hot Tech Innovator and global leader in precise location-based services (LBS) infrastructure, Comtech processes more than 9.5 billion LBS transactions monthly. Over the past decade, the company has developed an extensive portfolio of location-based services and technology expanded from the traditional E911, carrier LBS and mobile apps spaces into areas such as automotive, fleet, insurance, financial and IoT.

Comtech believes at least 70% of IoT devices will require location-enabled capabilities, including stationary devices, such as drink and food coolers, that would not traditionally be associated with location-based data. Its IoT location platforms provide access to end-to-end location functionalities for building solutions capable of locating and tracking any device indoors and outdoors, including low power, low cost devices. Comtech's location solution is a popular choice for IoT platforms because it’s signal-agnostic and supports any device running any operating system over virtually any network.

During Mobile World Congress, Comtech experts will be on-site to discuss the following:

  • Location Studio – Comtech’s complete end-to-end location platform providing mobile carriers, application developers and enterprises with a service platform for building or enhancing cloud-based, embedded and hybrid LBS applications. The platform includes multiple modular technology suites that provide a rich set of functionalities, including indoor and outdoor positioning, geolocation, location fraud detection, maps, search, routing, navigation, real-time messaging, and analytics.
  • IoT Location Platform (ILP) – Developed specifically to meet the needs of low-power, wide area devices and multi-network communications, ILP enables multi-sensor hybrid indoor and outdoor location positioning and data assistance services for all IoT devices and applications. The firm will demonstrate the latest IoT devices incorporating the Company’s location positioning solution through its partnerships with ARM’s Mbed and Samsung ARTIK IoT platforms. It will also showcase the ability to track sensors and mobile devices indoors using LED lighting.
  • Indoor/Outdoor Location Services – Comtech delivers seamless indoor/outdoor location services and applications, including inertial navigation and sensor fusion, to wireless operators, enterprises and other organizations, enabling precise measurement of direction, speed and altitude.
  • Messaging Platforms and Services – A leader in both text and messaging solutions, Comtech offers mobile operators, enterprises, businesses and municipalities comprehensive, high-performance, volume messaging solutions for sending alerts and notifications. Individual platforms are now available to developers via APIs, allowing seamless and quick integration into any system, website or application.
