This approach enables transitioning from the legacy location paradigm that is obtained from GMLC, SMLC, SUPL, A-GPS, E-CID which are looking at pinpointing an individual within the network and thus answering the question:
To new paradigms such as:
Value your location data
GeoHub provides an extensive set of documented APIs to build applications on top of the Intersec Platform, leveraging on its powerful capabilities on real-time location or history location. These API can be used in the following contexts:
Combining both active and passive geolocation techniques on a single product brings many benefits beyond mutualization and supporting a comprehensive set of use-cases. Both techniques mutually enrich themselves, unlocking new features, increasing their performance and at the same time optimizing the resulting load on the network.
While presenting an innovative approach in retrieving subscribers’ location, GeoHub can fit in legacy 3GPP geolocation environment, integrating with GMLCs (Gateway Mobile Location Centre), or even acting as a GMLC node. Trusted clients connected to GeoHub request on demand geolocation services using OMA MLP protocol. GeoHub processes these requests and when needed requests the subscriber location to the existing network components (HLR/HSS and MSS/MME). GeoHub equally leverages on the presence of a SMLC in the network to improve the spatial accuracy of the returned subscriber location.
