ION GNSS+ 2019, Rx Networks Inc., a leading mobile location technology and services company, as part of their continued reference network expansion and vendor diversity initiative, today announces the addition of BeiDou (“BDS”) III B1C and B2a signals and messages to Location.io, a feature-rich, highly modular location platform.

BDS III is available via Location.io in a variety of data formats including regionally optimized, NTRIP, LPP, and RRLP, as well as proprietary real-time and predicted formats.  With the addition of BDS III Location.io is positioned to support mobile devices globally in any configuration, including dual-band or single-band GNSS receivers, and in single or multi-constellation configurations.

“Rx Networks continues to follow up on our promise to deliver Location. Enlightened. products and services. BDS will play a major role in the years to come with the uptake of multiband GNSS in mobile devices including smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.” said Peter Mueller, Head of Innovation at Rx Networks. “The upgrade and expansion of our private global reference network can now offer legacy BDS II signal B1I right up to PRN 63, in addition to the new BDS III B1C and B2a signals, as well as GPS/QZSS/Galileo/GLONASS/NavIC support in L1, L2c and L5/E5. Plus, our network is ready for Galileo E6. This makes Location.io one of the most complete data services available, all with a great Service Level Agreement.”

Look for BDS III to be part of the Location.io software client in early 2020.
