Polaris Wireless Completes Field Trial On 3G Network For Wireless Location Accuracy

By July 31st, 2012 AT 1:35 PM

Polaris Wireless today announced that it has successfully completed field trials with a Tier I Indian wireless operator’s 3G network to prove compliance with DoT May 2011 mandate for location-based services.

Polaris Wireless has extended its reach by partnering with key players in the telecommunications eco-system in India. The company previously announced a partnership with CanvasM (a division of Tech Mahindra) to serve multiple wireless operators pan India.

The trials were conducted in the Kolkata metropolitan area to demonstrate the effectiveness of Polaris Wireless Location Signatures in urban 3G networks. The company announced in April that it had exceeded the DoT mandate in trials held in suburban and rural environments and remote areas in North-East region for a 2G network.

Previous trials in Bangalore also exceeded the DoT requirements in urban and indoor environments, but this is the first such trial in a 3G network environment in India. Polaris WLSTM is based on the 3GPP standardized RF Pattern Matching (RFPM) approach.

The DoT mandate specifies accuracy levels of 30 to 95 percent within two years of adoption for a range of 50 to 300 meters in urban areas. Polaris Wireless achieved accuracy levels of 62 to 99 percent in the 3G field trials in Kolkata.Combined with its previous trial results, Polaris Wireless is the first location solutions provider to exceed the DoT mandate in all radio access technologies (2G/3G) across all environments, proving the attainability of the mandate benchmarks.

Polaris Wireless also recently expanded its India ‘Centre of Excellence’ development and operations organization, which was established in 2005 in India.

A Happy Geek and a Network Research Engineer with a really cool day job…
