GeoLENs SUPL platform

The GeoLENs secure user plane location (SUPL) platform is now available.

The platform is based on a stand-alone server compliant with the Open Mobile Alliance’s SUPL 1.0 standard, that uses the owner plane for providing the location of a mobile device.

The benefits of using the system for determining location include easy integration into operator networks, offering immediate high-accuracy location capabilities. The platform has already been deployed by multiple Tier 1 operators to support commercial location-based services.

This is the first time, the company has offered a stand-alone SUPL configuration for wireless operators who need SUPL-only functionality. SUPL-based location allows operators to provide their subscribers location-based applications even when roaming as it operates independently of the capabilities of the visited access network.

While SUPL can offer a quicker, cost-effective way to deploy commercial LBS, control plane location capabilities are typically needed for meeting E-911 requirements and enabling security applications.

SUPL determines location by using radio measurements made by the mobile device from cell towers, Wi-Fi and GPS signals. It calculates location based on knowledge of such radio network sources and topology and it can also provide GPS assistance data to the end device.

The platform enables operators to locate mobile devices that are SUPL-enabled over a secure data connection using a variety of positioning technologies including Cell ID, enhanced cell ID and A-GPS.
