LOC-AID Location Information
Location Matters ™
BOCA RATON, FL - February 1, 2011 - 2011 is the year of location. All of the major wireless carriers in the U.S., including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, have launched network-based location services via LOC-AID. This marks a major shift in the LBS space. Location-enabled applications can now be used not just for smartphones, but for all mobile devices. Network-initiated LBS is a game-changer.

Enterprise developers can now locate over 300 million mobile devices in the U.S through a single API, all through the LOC-AID gateway. With LOC-AID, you can take your mobile applications to market - we get them certified and approved for launch by the tier-1 carriers.
How does it work? We use network-based location data to provide general location information (Cell ID) on all major wireless subscribers in the US - whether they use smartphones, feature phones, data cards, or connected devices. We enable enterprises to make their application location-aware without relying on the phone user to download a client. That means enterprise developers can now use network-based location data to enable solutions like fraud prevention, mobile marketing, authentication, mobile analytics, and asset tracking in a number of vertical industries such as Financial Services, Retail, Machine-to-Machine, Healthcare, Entertainment, IT Security, Education, ecommerce, Government, Manufacturing, and Travel & Hospitality.
