  • (1888PressRelease) August 30, 2011 - Spime Inc., the leading provider of LBS technology, today announces the launch of its SUPL 2.0 client with a US based, Tier One chipset manufacturer. Spime's SUPL is a middleware for smart phones and Tablets that implements a SUPL client enabling SET (SUPL Enabled Terminal) based or SET assisted position determination.

    Spime's SUPL client is a complete implementation of the Secure User Plane Location protocol V2.0 that enables wireless service providers to provide a new generation of location based services (LBS). The SUPL 2.0 client implements the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) standards based bearer for transferring location information such as GPS assistance data and carries positioning technology-related protocols between mobile terminals and the mobile network. With the widespread adoption of services that require the location of mobile devices, Spime's SUPL 2.0 client offers a complementary alternative to existing location standards built upon traditional signaling mechanisms limited to the mobile network.

    "Spime's SUPL 2.0 client is one of the industry's most comprehensive implementations of the OMA SUPL 2.0 standard says Venkateswaran K, Spime's VP of Engineering.
    Spime's SUPL client supports:

    Network based and SET based SUPL Agents;
    A-GPS, A-GANSS, E-Cell ID;
    Immediate, Periodic Triggered and Event Triggered Services; and,
    GSM/GPRS, WCDMA, CDMA, WLAN, LTE, UMB, WiMAX bearer networks.

    ODMs should consider Spime's solution even if they have an A-GPS chipset without the software."

    Spime's SUPL 2.0 client is written in a native portable code which minimizes integration and migration effort. With clearly defined integration points to the platform and GPS driver, integrations are simplified. And, Spime offers a flexible delivery model with the client available as an SDK in Source Code or Object Code format. Spime also offers integration services leveraging the company's multi-platform expertise.

    "Building on the successful commercialization of our SUPL 1.0 client distributed on chipset manufacturers and ODMs around the world, Spime's SUPL 2.0 release demonstrates the company's commitment to support the evolving SUPL standard, says Gary Mendel, VP WW Marketing and Sales. Customers Licensing Spime's SUPL software can have the confidence that they will have the most current location solutions available for their customers."
