The A-GPS technology offers positioning accuracy superior to most other positioning techniques.
Our long-standing partnership with Spirent now brings an LTE A-GPS OTA test solution to the industry, giving the design engineer a complete picture of real-world device performance.
BlueSky Positioning-enabled Gecko Landmarks tracking will be available for A-GPS SIMs in the second half of 2009.
The tests involved conducted testing of vendor-supplied A-GPS and GLONASS platforms to determine their receive sensitivity and their ability to obtain an accurate location fix in a challenging dense urban environment, first using A-GPS alone, then taking advantage of both A-GPS and GLONASS functionality.
The new service, which uses both A-GPS and fallback technology to deliver fast and accurate results, is expected to provide users with a 'Position Fix' in seconds and with accuracy up to and within 5-10m.
But to ensure that the technology delivers as promised in the real world, the performance of A-GPS in devices needs to be tested over the air in a large chamber under precisely-controlled conditions.
TruePosition U-TDOA is a location technology that can accurately and reliably locate any mobile phone in any environment, where other location technologies such as A-GPS cannot.
Our preliminary test results with A-GPS in-SIM technology have demonstrated compelling accuracy coupled with a fast TTFF (time-to-first-fix), comparable to any commercial A-GPS handsets in the market.
