Combain Mobile AB, a leading provider of geolocation service, is excited to announce a partnership with TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ:TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure wireless communication technology.

Combain will provide cell-id and Wi-Fi® geolocation services for TCS’ commercial Location Based Services (LBS) and public safety indoor location solutions. The companies will also work together to accelerate the development of new cloud-based services to meet the requirements for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) markets.

“We are excited to work with TCS and to further expand their LBS solutions. As more and more of their customers deploy connected IoT devices, our geolocation services will help ensure an accurate position – both indoor and outdoor,” said Björn Lindquist, CEO Combain Mobile AB.

TCS is well known for its engineering excellence and innovation with wireless applications focusing on location, messaging, and navigation. It provides LBS solutions including location applications to Mobile Network Operators, Public Safety agencies and enterprises around the world and is the leader in precise device location.

The arrangement will allow TCS to provide enhanced indoor geodetic (latitude/longitude) location fixes based on Combain’s Wi-Fi geolocation services for 9-1-1 callers across the United States. In situations where a dispatchable location cannot be derived, this approach will allow wireless operators to meet horizontal location requirements for indoor 9-1-1 calls.

“Combain brings the benefit of a cell-id and Wi-Fi look-up service with world class coverage and accuracy,” said Keith Bhatia, TCS group vice president and general manager, Mobility Solutions. “TCS has an increased demand from our customers to help them to precisely locate and manage their connected devices, both seamlessly and globally. Leveraging the Combain Positioning Systems API technology ensures our customers the most accurate location capability possible.”

Geolocation based on cell-id and Wi-Fi is ideal for the growing M2M and IoT markets, where low cost, small size, low power and indoor coverage are essential. Combain’s Positioning System is the leading geolocation solution for these markets by continuing location algorithm research and creating the world´s largest available cell-id and Wi-Fi database.
