Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Cambridge Positioning Systems Ltd (CPS) today announce a joint programme to drive development of high accuracy low cost E-OTD location technology for the global 2G and 3G markets.

3GSM World Congress, Cannes--Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Cambridge Positioning Systems Ltd (CPS) today announce a joint programme to drive development of high accuracy low cost E-OTD location technology for the global 2G and 3G markets.

Under the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding), the two companies will work closely together on technology innovation for future integration into a range of Samsung products.

The programme – the first of its kind in the world – follows Samsung’s announcement in July 2002 that it would be the first manufacturer to integrate E-OTD into a GSM handset. Subsequently, a number of Samsung handsets have completed software integration at CPS’s UK facility.

The joint development programme will provide Samsung with access to the latest technology developments for GSM, including 50-metre accuracy for North America and other markets. The programme will also extend to 3G where CPS is developing its own high accuracy solution.

CPS Chief Executive Chris Wade said: “Samsung is a dynamic world leading company and we are delighted and honoured to be working with them on this exciting location technology development programme. We look forward to developing a close and committed working relationship to drive E-OTD forward for the benefit of their customers.”
