Rx Networks Inc., as part of its continued reference network expansion and vendor diversity initiative, has added BeiDou III B1C and B2a signals and messages to Location.io, its feature-rich, modular location platform.
BDS III is available via Location.io in a variety of data formats including regionally optimized, NTRIP, LPP and RRLP, as well as proprietary real-time and predicted formats.
With the addition of BDS III, Location.io is positioned to support mobile devices globally in any configuration, including dual-band or single-band GNSS receivers, and in single or multi-constellation configurations.
“Rx Networks continues to follow up on our promise to deliver Location. Enlightened. products and services,” said Peter Mueller, head of innovation at Rx Networks. “BDS will play a major role in the years to come with the uptake of multiband GNSS in mobile devices including smartphones and internet of things (IoT) devices.”
“The upgrade and expansion of our private global reference network can now offer legacy BDS II signal B1I right up to PRN 63, in addition to the new BDS III B1C and B2a signals, as well as GPS/QZSS/Galileo/GLONASS/NavIC support in L1, L2c and L5/E5. Plus, our network is ready for Galileo E6. This makes Location.io one of the most complete data services available, all with a great Service Level Agreement.”
BDS III will be part of the Location.io software client in early 2020.
Location.io technologies are in use by more than 2 billion smartphones, laptops and wearables worldwide. All Location.io services are delivered from Rx Networks’ geo-redundant and cloud-based service delivery network, ensuring 99.999% service-level availability.
