LBS gatewaysAs more services are offered to subscribers, the increasing need to segment audiences pulls advertising campaigns to be more accurate and sophisticated. Our Location Based Services has the tools that can make the difference. Location-Database is a multi-service platform capable of offering multiple queries about how users are moving on the Network without loading the existing network infrastructure.

Location Information
The location of each subscriber is stored on the private database, allowing not only to locate subscriber, but to enable location-change triggers. Also listings of subscribers per cell, or cell groups, are not a barrier for High End applications like CellBroadcaster 2.0.

Location Change Based Services
Location-Database creates a new concept by making services triggered by the change of the subscriber’s location. This makes a subscriber capable of receiving specific marketing information while travelling through cities or neighborhoods.

How it works
Location-Database is based on the SigMon Platform. Sigtran probes are located in the BSS network, sniffing BSSAP and RANAP protocols. Each transaction is traced into the server memory, and location information is periodically downloaded to the internal database. Most queries are handled in memory allowing a lighting fast reply. Queries including current location, tracking information, subscribers on a cell or cell list are easily resolved.

Benefits

  • Avoid HLR load with ATI and SRI queries for SMS-MT
  • More advanced queries available for next generation LBSs
  • Location Change Triggers for Location Change Based Services
