Autodesk(R) Releases LocationLogic 6

    3gsm Conference, Cannes, France (ots/PRNewswire)

    - Comprehensive Location Solution Platform for European Market

    At the 3GSM conference in Cannes, France, Autodesk, Inc. today announced the latest version of its comprehensive solution platform for location-enhanced services, Autodesk LocationLogic 6. Built from the ground up to meet the needs of wireless network operators, LocationLogic 6 is an example of how Autodesk's award winning technology continues to evolve to anticipate and meet the real-world demands of carriers, enterprises, and consumers in the growing location market.

    "With LocationLogic 6, we are extending our user plane and geoservices expertise in North America to meet the unique needs of the European market," said Joe Astroth, vice president, Autodesk. "The latest release of LocationLogic demonstrates that Autodesk has the experience and resources to consistently lead innovation in the location-based services market."

    Among the major new features of LocationLogic 6, its privacy management now controls location related privacy preferences on a per-subscriber, per client-application basis. A subscriber's privacy preferences are maintained in his or her privacy profile. This capability adds force to Autodesk's strong, on-going commitment to user privacy.

    For additional privacy management and geo-spatial enhancements, Autodesk LocationLogic 6 takes advantage of an A-GPS user plane location interface, which utilizes highly accurate Global Positioning System signals to calculate a user's location. Autodesk is the leader in user plane privacy management and geoservices in North America and is extending its expertise in emerging Secure User Plane Location (SUPL) technology to meet the unique needs of the European market. User plane architecture uses the TCP/IP capability of the existing network infrastructure, so carriers do not have to invest in costly equipment upgrades to bring location to their customers. LocationLogic 6 also offers J2ME and BREW support for handset extensions that enable rapid deployment of privacy enhanced mobile applications and network based applications.

    The platform's new geospatial alerting and subscriptions (triggers and alerts) enable mobile operators to optimize the use of their existing network infrastructure while offering new revenue-generating, location-enabled services to a mass market. The passive network-monitoring technology eliminates the excessive network traffic normally associated with frequent network polling to track mobile subscribers, enabling scalable deployments of compelling enterprise and consumer tracking applications.

    LocationLogic 6 now fully supports the Red Hat Linux operating system as well as Sun Solaris, offering carriers greater flexibility in deployment.

    Autodesk LocationLogic was engineered to meet specific requirements such as a scalable J2EE architecture and the ability to handle high-volume transaction loads in order to offer unparalleled flexibility and reliability to wireless network operators. Its capabilities include multi-modal routing and user zones which support tracking and notification services such as fleet management. In January 2004, Autodesk's OpenGIS(R) Location Services (OpenLS(TM)) Specification was officially adopted by the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. Co-authored by Autodesk, this open specification ensures interoperability between location-aware applications. It also supports the Autodesk LocationLogic Software Development Kit.
