The Telcontar UTS “connects people to things” through a sophisticated integration of electronic devices with wireless, telephony and Web technologies. Typical devices include a wireless radio modem, a microprocessor and a GPS receiver for mobile applications that can be installed in cars, computers, as well as homes and other prospective MSSC applications. Its fault-tolerant, flexible, open architecture allows integration of best-of- breed mapping, communications, hardware devices, voice and other technology components without requiring the re-engineering of back-end applications or consumer user interfaces. The Drill Down Server spatial software platform powers a wide range of location-based wireless or Internet applications such as mapping portals, navigation, real time traffic, directory services, vehicle tracking and security.
