ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --TeleCommunication Systems, Inc.
(TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile
communication technology, today announced the successful deployment of its
Xypoint Location Platform (XLP^®), which now supplies nTelos wireless with
mobile Location-Based Services (LBS) infrastructure. nTelos wireless needed a
flexible replacement solution that could be supplied rapidly while providing
subscribers with uninterrupted location services.

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 comprehensive and scalable 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.

With the addition of nTelos wireless, TCS now supplies its XLP location
platform to 35 mobile operators worldwide. Berg Insight's recent LBS platform
study identifies TCS as the global leader in providing precise location
infrastructure to mobile operators.

TCS' ability to quickly deploy a complete hosted location infrastructure – as
well as a suite of LBS applications such as navigation, family finder and
workforce locator – helps mobile operators reduce time to market, lower
implementation costs and eliminate integration problems associated with new
location services, achieving a higher return on investment in record time.

  oLynne 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."
  oConrad 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
