The company develops the location platform standard called secure user plane for location and has incorporated the technology in its products. The company’s platform also provides privacy controls so that the wireless device user may control access to the user’s location information, and exposes location application programming interfaces to location-based applications. The company offers carriers around the world the location-based services solution continuum, with the expertise to enable infrastructure, middleware and application functionality.
