Rx Networks Creates the World’s First Quad-Constellation Global Reference Network: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo

September 18, 2013

ION GNSS+ 2013: Booth 523

Rx Networks Inc., a leading mobile location technology and services company, today announced it is upgrading its GPStream GRN™ (Global Reference Network) to include support for the BeiDou and Galileo constellations alongside its well proven GPS and GLONASS assistance services. The upgrade will be completed by the end of this year with commercial service starting in 2014.

With the official release of the Chinese BeiDou specifications in late 2012 and the rollout plans for Galileo, several semiconductor vendors will soon be introducing chipsets capable of supporting these new GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) constellations. Multi-constellation devices receiving GNSS assistance data from GPStream GRN will have much greater success in areas where satellite visibility is severely limited, such as urban canyons or indoors.

GPStream GRN is the foundation on which Rx Networks’ and third party real-time and predictive Assisted-GNSS products operate, as used by over 700 million smartphones worldwide. Backed by a 99.999% Service Level Agreement, GPStream GRN is already the proven source of real-time assistance data for most North American mobile operators for their E-911 location platforms.

“Our reference network will be the first to commercially support all four constellations,” said Ryan Reilly, Product Manager, “reaffirming our leadership position on Assisted-GNSS solutions for the mobile market.”
