SiRF, Skyhook offer WiFi location-based service
|16 марта 2007|
SiRF says that the technology will be applied to special client software from SiRF for mobile handsets which combine GPS and WiFi measurements as well as to SiRF's SiRFLoc Server to enable it to establish precise positioning from these measurements.
They say that the new technology will allow carriers to "enhance their revenues by offering enhanced location-based services" (read: advertising). "This is the first time a single positioning system has combined both GPS and WiFi location data to get us a step closer to achieving 100 percent availability of accurate positioning," says Kanwar Chadha, co-founder and vice president of marketing for SiRF.
SiRF will offer the technology to mobile handset makers using SiRF's SiRFstarIII and GSCi-5000 chips sets, as well as to wireless carriers using its SiRFLoc Server. Skyhook has been in the metro location-based WiFi for a while, offering WiFi-based (rather than satellite- or cell tower-based) location data.
