Lucent Technologies has signed an agreement with Telcontar to collaborate on fully integrated Location-Based Services (LBS) for mobileoperators.

Lucent Worldwide Services (LWS) will integrate key components of Lucent’s advanced IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution with Telcontar’s Drill Down Server® (DDS) for creating location-based services, which Lucent will then market to mobile network operators. Telcontar, which powers the industry’s leading mapping and local search services, including Yahoo!, Google, Ask Jeeves, Rand McNally, Motorola VIAMOTO™ and Hutchison 3G wireless, will complement Lucent’s LBS services, based on the Drill Down Server geo-spatial software platform. Lucent will also collaborate on the introduction of LBS applications using Telcontar’s Drill Down Server, which complements Lucent’s iLocator and MiLife® Intelligent Services Gateway (ISG) platforms, key elements of Lucent’s Accelerate™ Next-Generation Communications Solutions portfolio. These applications include interactive maps and directions, as well as Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) services such as navigation, fleet tracking, points of interest information, and family finder services. Telcontars Drill Down Server is one of the industry’s premier software platforms for location-based services. The DDS powers a variety of location-based applications by rapidly generating maps, driving directions and other spatial data. The applications can be delivered to multiple devices, including cell phones, computer workstations, web browsers, PDAs, Pocket PCs, IPTV devices, and vehicle telematics units. Telcontar also offers a variety of LBS applications from its ecosystem of LBS application development partners, and can also manage the provision of appropriate geographic data from its data supplier partners.
