Verizon Wireless Targets Location-Enabled Enterprise Services

Verizon Wireless has begun supporting a variety of third-party Location Based Services (LBS) applications for navigation, in-vehicle tracking and geo-fencing aimed at business users. The new service is especially relevant to organizations that rely on vehicles with mounted laptops such as public safety, delivery and maintenance workforces and others. The services are supported using select Mobile Broadband PC cards and USB modems with built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers.

"Enabling LBS on our Mobile Broadband devices broadens the scope of applications our business customers can implement for their field workforces," said Mike Lanman, president of enterprise and government markets for Verizon Wireless. "And they do so knowing they have the underlying support of the nation's largest, most reliable 3G network."

Mobile Broadband devices that offer support for LBS include the Verizon Wireless USB760 Modem, Verizon Wireless PC770 2-in-1 Card and ExpressCard, and the MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot.
