Intersec, a global leader in location and mobility data solutions, has published a report regarding the use cases of their 5G-ready geolocation platform, and the increased option that it has seen with tier-one carriers around the globe.
The report shows that the platform has already been chosen by tier-one telecom operators in Canada, Emirates, Saudi Arabia, France, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Brazil. It also discusses different ways to monetise the use of the technology, within data privacy regulations.
Intersec CEO, Yann Chevalier said, “The arrival of 5G opens a wide range of geolocation use cases for mobile operators, public authorities, media, manufacturing, automotive, and transportation industries. Performance requirements in terms of accuracy, availability, latency, and reliability encourage operators to go beyond connectivity and capitalize on new revenue streams to seize sustainable growth opportunities”.
The Intersec platform anonymously collects location datasets on a mass scale, detects pre-defined or machine learning, triggers relevant instant actions and computes insights in real-time. It also enables CPUs to greater leverage location-based applications, unlocking monetisation opportunities with existing use cases by bringing its positioning accuracy down to the meter.
In the last 12 years, Intersec has developed a comprehensive catalogue of active and passive geolocation integration schemes, providing cellular, subcellular and indoor accuracy. And, they report that, thanks to the use of millimetre waves and beamforming, 5G has achieved unprecedented precision, unleashing the potential of the RF Fingerprinting technology.
By combining those geolocation techniques in the 5G ecosystem, the Intersec platform enables a higher spatial and temporal accuracy, reduces blind spots, provides enhanced tracking capabilities and optimizes network resources.
The adoption of 5G is a sign of significant improvements and even though it’s still a bit far from release, 6G will build on top of 5G in terms of many of the technological and use case aspects, while enabling its own set of new cases. For now, Nokia’s 5G Advanced will help users experience the full potential of the 5G network, but even Nokia is talking about the potential of mapping with cellular.
