US: TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) has added two Middle East based mobile networks to its customer portfolio for a combined contract value of about $3 million. With more than 22 million mobile subscribers combined, the network providing companies are using TCS’ Location-Based Services (LBS) solutions to meet the rapidly growing demand for mobile Internet in the region. Both the operators will be using the LBS platforms for value-added services, such as mobile advertising, workforce management, and for user safety and security.
TCS Commercial Software Group President Jay Whitehurst says, “Remarkable advances in Middle East broadband and mobile location technologies are fueling increased demand for services that use them from enterprises and subscribers. TCS' 20-plus years of LBS experience and end-to-end LBS portfolio have led to deployment of our products by two of the largest Middle East mobile network operators. We are pleased to partner with these leading operators to help shape the future of location technology in this dynamic region."
