4TS Launches GlobalMPS

by Staff Writers
Helsinki, Finland (SPX) Nov 20, 2008
4TS Finland Oyhas launched new mobile positioning technology, GlobalMPS, Global Mobile Positioning System. This new technology enables operator-independent positioning for mobile devices anywhere a GSM network is available, e.g. also inside the buildings. With GlobalMPS, the limitations of GPS are eliminated and true real-time positioning is made possible.

Positioning with GPS (Global Positioning System) is not possible inside buildings or inside many vehicles even with the newest GPS technologies. Operators offer a mobile network based positioning service, MPS (Mobile Positioning System) for mobile devices, which is operator-dependent and almost impossible to use when moving from one operator's network to another's.

With their new invention, GlobalMPS, 4TS Finland is able to provide a global positioning solution that combines both the GPS and GlobalMPS features.

The new GlobalMPS technology allows locationing inside buildings, trucks, and delivery vehicles and wherever a mobile GSM network is available. The GPS tracking handicap of not getting position information in those environments is eliminated with GlobalMPS and a true real-time positioning becomes possible.

By being easily located with GlobalMPS and not trying to ping for GPS locations where it obviously is not possible, this also saves battery life on a mobile device. The accuracy for GlobalMPS positioning is up to the GPS-level. All these new features mean that the security and quality assurance of the transported assets improve.

4TS Finland's 4TS dSeal products are mobile devices that feature real-time tracking and versatile observation of the surrounding environment. 4TS dSeal has now both the GPS and GlobalMPS positioning and sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, acceleration (shock and free falling), air pressure and cargo tampering.

The device gives an alert immediately when a predetermined tolerance of the asset being tracked is exceeded. 4TS dSeal is ideal for real-time monitoring and tracking of all kinds of transportation, deliveries and other moving objects.

"This is a breakthrough in mobile positioning technology. It will enable new innovative solutions as we are fulfilling our mission. Our Mission is to make all objects trackable real-time and be self-aware on land, sea, air, and underground," comments Jyrki Paananen, CEO and President of 4TS Finland Oy.

"4TS dSeal product has proven to be unique and it is something that has a demand in the market. This new GlobalMPS technology makes our products even more attractive. It will be available with our 4TS dSeal products during the first Quarter of 2009. It has already been in test use for months and everything looks great," says Jyrki Paananen.
