Serving Mobile Location Center – 2G SMLC, 3G SAS, 4G E-SMLC

Our Xypoint® Serving Mobile Location Center uses a range of location technologies including Enhanced Cell-ID(Serving Cell ID, Range, and Signal Strength Measurements), A-GNSS, OTDOA and Terrestrial Beacon Systems-based position determination techniques to cater for a diverse range of geographical environments, both indoor and outdoor. Our Xypoint® Serving Mobile Location Center products also offer hybridization of positioning techniques to further enhance yield and accuracy.

Secure User Plane Location (SUPL) Server

Our Xypoint® SUPL Server is the most accurate secure user plane location (SUPL) server in the industry. SUPL Server is a state-of-the-art SUPL standards-compliant Assisted Global Positioning System (A-GPS) server that enables precise and sophisticated location-based services for mobile operators.


Our Xypoint® Location Services Gateway (XLSG) is middleware that serves as the interface between the LBS platform components and the LBS applications using standard communication protocols (MLP).

Satellite Reference Network

Our Satellite Reference Network provides data on any satellite, for any location, at any given moment, for precision location solutions. It does so by accessing multiple networks of satellite receivers and constantly downloading data from strategically positioned receivers around the world. Comtech Telecommunications is able to deliver reference data necessary to deploy commercial or emergency A-GNSS services.
