LocationSmart is the world’s largest LaaS provider, with clients in over 200 countries ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small startups. Its technology is used by customers seeking comprehensive, context-aware application development. The company reaches over 15 billion connected devices globally, and its identity services authenticate over 1.5 billion transactions every month. LocationSmart recently launched in Canada, and provides cross-carrier services to over 90% of mobile subscribers in the country.
With LocationSmart, developers have access to a safe cloud LaaS (Location as a Service) platform accessed by only one API. This enables customized location services for apps that can better suit the requirements of clients. LocationSmart’s technology enables developers to perform a variety of actions. GSID (Global Site ID) can track Wi-Fi, CDMA, GSM, WCDMA, and LTE devices, providing a precise location from more than 200 countries. Companies are also able to find devices that are connected to more than 1.8 billion Wi-Fi access points worldwide, along with over 160 million cell tower IDs.
In addition, they can pinpoint over 30 million devices throughout Canada using wireless carriers, with no need for any app installations or extra software for the device itself. They also have the ability to discern locations of over 3 billion IP addresses. Also present is the option to find the location of a browser for over 3.2 billion devices, which works with all of the most popular browsers.
LocationSmart’s LaaS gives application developers the option to utilize enhanced geotargeting, sending customers specifically-targeted text messages for advertising purposes, regardless of location. This is helpful because messages can use the local language and currency dependent on customer location. Through the LaaS platform, companies can use real-time geolocation to monitor network security, automatically detecting suspicious activity in network traffic. IP and device profiling also enable businesses to detect online fraud more easily, through IP address identification, device location, and proxy and host information. The account can then be frozen or denied service.
LaaS also enables 24/7 real-time monitoring of company assets around the world, including machinery, vehicles, ships, and airplanes. This is useful for making sure assets are not straying from the proper route, confirming asset location in case of repairs, tracking devices used by workers, increasing efficiency of operations, easily communicating location-related info to workers in the case of adjustments, and obtaining fast status reports. LaaS also prevents problems in location data due to poor GPS info or signal loss.
