5/7/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced that Taiwan Cellular Corporation (TCC) is one of the first service providers to select the Agilent acceSS7 Location system. The system provides real-time subscriber location information that allows TCC to deliver location-based services, such as location-based advertising, directly to customers' phones.
The Agilent acceSS7 solution enables GSM (global system for mobile communications) and GPRS (general packet radio services) service providers to accelerate large-scale deployment of revenue-generating location-based services without the large expense of adding additional network hardware or requiring subscribers to upgrade their phones.
acceSS7 Location is based on Agilent's industry-leading link-monitoring solutions and newly developed hardware and patented software, which is able to acquire, correlate and analyze signaling data to derive the location of a mobile handset.
The solution provides a continuous stream of real-time location information for all active subscribers. Because it is extremely scalable and does not require additional network infrastructure, acceSS7 Location does not affect network performance.
More information about acceSS7 Location is available at www.agilent.com/comms/access7location.
