Rx Networks adds another licensee for its GPStream technology


Rx Networks’ GPStream technology now available on Industry’s smallest GPS solution enabling even faster satellite acquisition and better receiver sensitivity

Vancouver, Canada – April 1, 2009; Rx Networks, Inc., today announced that ST-Ericsson, a leader in mobile platforms and semiconductors has licensed Rx Networks GPStream™ technology for use with their GPS solutions. GPStream™ technology enables GPS based mobile devices to calculate and retain predicted satellite position information. This makes satellite acquisitions very fast for a better user experience, and enables devices to operate in weaker signal environments. Overall improvements include: significantly reduced Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF), lower power consumption, and improved usability in urban canyons.

“The ST-Ericsson GPS solution comes in an impressively small form factor with low power consumption,” said Guylain Roy-MacHabée, President and CEO of Rx Networks. “This provides a lot of flexibility when designing into area constrained platforms like mobile handsets.”

“Having the GPStream™ technology integrated into our GPS solutions makes commercial deployment simple for our customers,” said Nick Taluja, Head of Product marketing of ST-Ericsson, “this allows us to provide our customers with an industry leading portfolio of turnkey assisted GPS solutions.”

GPStream™ PGPS™ extended ephemeris feature enables the fastest possible TTFF by eliminating network overhead associated with real time network overhead associated with SUPL solutions. The solution uses very small 2Kbyte weekly downloads and is well suited for mobile handsets.

GPStream™ SAGPS™ does not require any network connectivity at all. Originally targeting personal navigation devices, the solution has also found use in emerging markets where consumers like advanced handset products but are sensitive to recurring network service fees and roaming charges.
