The Mobile Arts Mobile Location Centre (MLC) Solution provides Mobile Operators with all location technologies and capabilities they need to fulfil legal requirements and provide commercial applications. The MLC solution can be deployed and seamlessly integrated with any GSM, UMTS and LTE network on earth, and is commercially proven to fully interwork with equipment from all major core network and radio network infrastructure suppliers (Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia, Alcatel-Lucent, ZTE, Samsung, Cisco, HP…). Furthermore, we excel in interworking with complex hybrid networks having equipment from many different infrastructure vendors. The Mobile Arts MLC Solution can handle it all “in one box”.
We develop all software (on top of the OS and execution environment) in house, which puts us in 100% control, i.e. we do not have any dependency to third party software suppliers. This is actually one of the key factors explaining why we provide superior flexibility and quality.
MLC Use Cases
The Mobile Arts MLC enables the Mobile Network Operator to support the following uses cases:
Commercial Location-Based Services (LBS)
MLC Location Technologies
The Mobile Arts MLC supports more than 15 different location technologies, such as different versions of Cell-Id, Enhanced Cell-Id, Assisted GNSS, OTDOA, WiFi and Hybrid location for GSM, UMTS, LTE and WiFi networks. The supported location technologies include control-plane, user-plane, as well as passive location methods.
The Mobile Arts MLC solution includes the core products GMLC/XMLC, SMLC and PMLC. The products are logically separate, but can be collocated on the same physical or virtual hardware and are managed as one system. In addition, the MLC solution contains various vertical applications, e.g. web-based LBS applications, which can be used for different purposes by different entities.
