I an article on Kansas City, KORE Telematics announced the launch of KORE LOCATE, the industry’s first location-based service offering from a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). Kore Locate provides primary or secondary location-based information to any application service provider who is a KORE customer. Although non-GPS solutions now have the ability to track device locations KORE LOCATE complements existing GPS applications by offering a rich feature set of location-based services.
“‘The new KORE LOCATE service will provide a significant enhancement to our portfolio of tracking solutions,’ said Jeff Evert, president of GPS Intelligence. ‘With KORE’s ability to deliver location information across both our GSM and CDMA network offerings and devices from a single interface, we can now provide both GPS and network-based solutions to all of our customers. This multi-network capability will allow us to deliver an even greater level of service, coverage and reliability.’
For the first time, non-GPS powered M2M applications, such as utility, point-of-sale and telehealth solutions operating on the KORE network can track device locations for improved efficiencies, asset control, safety and security KORE LOCATE provides GPS-equipped devices, including those associated with fleet tracking applications, with location-based data when the device may be ‘out of sight’ such as in buildings, parking garages or tunnels. In addition, KORE LOCATE enables non-GPS equipped devices with the ability to be located on demand.”
