Nexius Positions NextNav to Lead Revolution in Terrestrial Positioning
Company's Network Engineering, Network Deployment, Software Services Help NextNav Enable Accurate Location of Mobile Devices Indoors and in Urban Areas
ALLEN, Texas, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexius, the leader in delivering end-to-end wireless services and software solutions to industries worldwide, today announced its role as the first partner and primary vendor chosen to support the ground-breaking terrestrial positioning network and technology being deployed by NextNav, the company revolutionizing urban and indoor positioning for public safety and commercial applications. Specifically, Nexius is supplying network engineering, network deployment and software services to NextNav, throughout the United States, as they build their nationwide network to enable accurate location of mobile wireless devices – even in challenging indoor environments.
While every element of the network, including its nationwide licensed spectrum, is designed, owned and operated by NextNav, the company tapped Nexius to serve as its deployment partner in 32 cities. By relying on Nexius for services from site acquisition through construction, installation and third-tier vendor management, NextNav has been able to leverage Nexius' local scale to meet its deployment objectives. To date, Nexius has delivered the NextNav test bed market in San Francisco on time and is actively engaged in the remaining nationwide deployments.
"Before NextNav, there was really no reliable, wide area, high-precision solution for locating mobile devices in urban and indoor environments," said Matt Glass, executive vice president of network services at Nexius. "NextNav is leading a revolution in this field by building the nation's first high precision, real time barometric pressure calibration network. It's brand new technology and a brand new concept, and we're providing the end-to-end services that are making their network a reality."
David Knutson, vice president of network operations at NextNav said, "We're rolling out a network that has huge ramifications in both public safety and commercial applications. Location accuracy in a multi-story building can be a life and death issue on an E911 call. And that same accuracy can drive relevant, location-based advertising, marketing and other consumer-focused services. Nexius' highly skilled team and end-to-end service capabilities help us meet these critical requirements. They're a nimble company that offers turnkey services and alleviates the headaches of managing multiple vendors in multiple markets."
Today's announcement underscores Nexius' reputation for wireless innovation as it presents at International CTIA WIRELESS 2012, the premier marketplace for wireless, telecom and broadband as well as the key vertical markets that have entered into wireless. CTIA 2012 is held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans from May 8th -10th, 2012. At the conference, Nexius is exhibiting in booth number 5363.
NextNav is deploying a revolutionary positioning system designed from the ground up to allow mobile phones and other devices to reliably determine their position in challenging urban and indoor environments where GPS signals can't be received. NextNav's technology combines accurate horizontal positioning with floor-level height precision. Delivered over a managed network with carrier-grade dependability, NextNav's positioning services are suitable for public safety and emergency response as well as the multitude of consumer and commercial applications that rely on location accuracy.
