Comtech Launches Location Studio™ for Creating Location Solutions and Apps

Platform provides one-stop-shop for adding location and contextual intelligence to any cloud-based, embedded or hybrid implementation

MELVILLE, N.Y. & LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- September 6, 2016 - Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL), a world leader in secure and highly reliable wireless communication technology, announced today the commercial availability of Location Studio, a versatile service platform for mobile operators, application developers and enterprises to build or enhance cloud-based, embedded and hybrid applications using a modular set of location-based services (LBS) tools.

Location Studio incorporates multiple technology suites that provide a broad range of functionality, allowing developers to create location enabled applications with contextual awareness, including:

  • GeoSuite for integration of maps, search, geocoding, routing, and navigation. Also includes geo-fencing for triggering alerts when devices enter or exit a specified space, and Comtech's Trusted Location™ solution for verifying and validating a device's location to prevent fraudulent activity.
  • PositioningSuite, a powerful engine that can locate and track assets, such as IoT devices, seamlessly switching between inside and outside environments while minimizing device power consumption using a proprietary geo-fence algorithm that eliminates the need for "always on" GPS.
  • MessagingSuite, a comprehensive, carrier-grade messaging platform that supports virtually all messaging protocols and is capable of supporting personalized high-volume messaging applications for alerts and notifications, such as product and/or services information, emergency alerts, and critical internal communication.
  • AnalyticsSuite, a web-based portal for reviewing and exploring user, device or application data.

"Location Studio encompasses two decades of location-based services experience that can be easily configured into consumer, industrial, or workforce-ready applications and services while minimizing deployment timelines, costs, and resource requirements," said Jay Whitehurst, President of Enterprise Technologies, Comtech Telecommunications Corp. and Member of CTIA's Board of Directors. "We are excited to see how this new platform influences and enables the use and impact of location intelligence across a number of different markets."

Location Studio supports both hosted and in-network LBS solutions and provides API's that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of various vertical market customers, including mobile network operators, automotive OEMs, fleet and logistic organizations, insurance and financial organizations, as well as manufacturers. As part of these solution offerings, Comtech provides project management, coordination, and testing support.
