Premium Location Based Services
We are pleased to announce that we now offer a Premium Location Based Services (Premium LBS) with accurate location information provided straight from our network Home Location Register (HLR).
This new Application Program Interface (API) service provides users access to accurate positioning of their devices in longitude and latitude format. Updates of any changes in location are sent to customers via HTTP Posts, enabling customers to have a self-updating database that contains the location of all devices in their estate.
The Premium LBS is available to all of our customers as it needs no device integration or specific hardware beyond the AnyNet SIM card. Because it uses our HLR and an app that can be run remotely on the AnyNet SIM card. This removes any need for redesigning a device for the use of costly Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
The Premium LBS enables real-time lookup of locations through the interrogation of the HLR. When a device is online our HLR can see its location, based on the mast it is connected to. Eseye turn this result into universally understandable latitude and longitude values, these are sent out to the customer. Should a device be moved and develop a fault in transit the real-time lookup service can locate where the device is located and only the correct device needs recalling not the entire delivery.
“The location information can be a hugely useful tool for our customers. We are always keen to help our customers make the most of their connected solutions and have developed the Premium LBS to be of great benefit to those who use the SIAM/JSON API to feed data straight into their own back end systems. I am pleased to announce that we have such a great new service,” says Ian Marsden, Eseye’s CTO.
During Eseye’s thorough testing process our Support Team have found the Premium LBS incredibly useful. They have used the services for locating troublesome devices and ensuring that our customers have located the correct device.
The Premium LBS is available for a monthly charge and is only available as JSON encoded data on the location API. For more information please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
