Global Tracking Communications, Inc, a leading North American supplier of GPS tracking systems and web enabled software, announces that they have been chosen by Quantum Enginering as their supplier of wireless modems for their rail car end-of-train telemetry units.

Quantum's EOT product supplies critical operational data and GPS location based data to their rail car operator customers. Quantum will utilize GTC's web based mapping and reporting (Globaltrack System) to enable Quantum's rail operator customers to view location based information in real time. Andy Kustes, CTO of Global Tracking Communications, Inc., states that by "Combining Quantum's EOT product with GTC's LBS technology (Location-Based Services) will provide Quantum's rail operator customers with critical data to help them overcome everyday challenges that are common in the rail car industry."

Location-based services (LBS) are wireless 'mobile content' services which are to provide location-specific information to mobile users moving from location to location. It is also called LoCation Services( LCS)

How it works
The service provider gets the location from a GPS chip built into the phone, or using radiolocation and trilateration based on the signal-strength of the closest cell-phone towers (for phones without GPS features). In the UK, networks do not use trilateration; LBS services use a single base station, with a 'radius' of inaccuracy, to determine a phone's location.

A successful LBS technology must meet the position accuracy requirements determined by the respective service, at the lowest possible cost and with minimal impact on network and the equipment. The obvious technology needed in providing LBS is getting to know the location or the position, the geographic data of that location and an application to process the position information along with the geographic data to provide Location Based Service.
