Research and Markets: Global Revenues for Mobile Location Platforms Will Grow To 330 Million In 2017

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/r7x32x/lbs_platforms_and) has announced the addition of Berg Insight AB's new report "LBS Platforms and Technologies - 4th Edition" to their offering.

According to a new research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight, the global market for LBS platforms will see steady growth in the coming years. Annual revenues for mobile location platforms, including GMLC/SMLC and SUPL A-GPS servers as well as middleware deployed by mobile operators, are projected to grow from about 200 million in 2012 to 330 million in 2017. The demand is mainly driven by emergency call and lawful intercept mandates that require network operators to invest in location platforms enabling location of any handset already in use by subscribers. Commercial location-based services (LBS) are not likely to have a similar impact on the market for mobile operator location platforms. Mainstream commercial LBS primarily rely on alternative location sources including GPS in handsets, Wi-Fi location services and third party Cell-ID databases. Mobile operators are however showing increasing interest in using mass location data for advertising and marketing, as well as new services like analytics. Leading location platform and chipset vendors such as Ericsson, TeleCommunication Systems, CSR, Broadcom and Qualcomm are now also escalating their efforts to enable reliable and ubiquitous location indoors, said André Malm, Senior Analyst, Berg Insight. Achieving seamless transition between outdoor and indoor navigation requires handsets with hybrid location technologies. Hybrid location technologies fuse signal measurements from multiple global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), cellular and Wi-Fi network signals, together with data from sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, compasses and altimeters. He adds that several other location technology developers are also addressing the fledgling indoor location market. These companies offer various solutions based on wireless infrastructure or software that enable numerous stakeholders including handset vendors, smartphone platform vendors, mobile operators and venue owners to provide services ranging from indoor navigation to marketing and analytics.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
