Vodafone Spain and Genasys announce that last month the operator selected the Genasys Positioning Platform as their location enabling server for the administration and delivery of location based services.
GPP provides a complete array of management services that are essential to the efficient and reliable provisioning of LBS. It acts as the “command and control centre” for LBS management by implementing powerful security and privacy features while interconnecting all the required applications and internal operator systems. These may include SMS/MMS centres, geoservers, billing systems, location servers, content providers, operations and management systems and customer care. The first version of GPP was released and installed over five years ago and today it is installed for operators who serve a total of over 70 million mobile subscribers worldwide.
Genasys CEO Joaquín Sanz observes, “We are extremely pleased that Vodafone selected our GPP to consolidate and strengthen their LBS infrastructure. Though we’ve been providing a wide variety of telecom and geographic information system solutions to Vodafone Spain for nearly ten years, this is our first location based services contract with them."
After a period of installation and integration the current LBS services will be migrated to GPP. Vodafone has plans to further develop the and expand their range of location-based services over the months that follow.
