Encyclopedia > GMS localization

GSM localization is the use of GSM mobile phones to determine the location of the user.


LBS are Localization Based Systems. One can find several types:

  • Cell ID The precision of this method is 200 meters in urban areas, 2 km in suburban areas and 3-4 km in rural zones.
  • Enhanced Cell ID With this method one can get a precision similar to Cell ID, but for rural areas, with circular sectors of 550 meters.
  • TOA: Time Of Arrival
  • AOA: Angle Of Arrival
  • E-OTD: This is similar to TOA, but the position is estimated by the mobile phone, not by the base station. The precision of this method depends on the number of availables LMUs in the networks, varing from 50 to 200 m.

The Rockley Bulletin (2004 words)
Once the source content is created, it is flagged for localization and sent to the translator, who, with the help of their translation tool, translates the content, then sends it back to the author for review of the content and format.
While a GMS may contain some of the functionality of a CMS, it is designed specifically to support the complexity of content globalization and localization processes.
A GMS is not meant to be a replacement for either CMS or localization tool functionality; rather, the functionality of all three components is needed as part of a global unified content strategy.
