RX Networks Adds Glonass Assistance Data
As Russia is enhancing its Glonass GNSS constellation, location technology providers are jumping in the bandwagon to leverage these new satellites in the sky. This is the case of Rx Networks Inc., a Canadian provider of assistance data for GPS that announced last week the commercial availability of its new GPStream GRN (Global Reference Network) which delivers real-time and predicted orbit assistance to improve location-based services that use next generation GPS and GLONASS chipsets.

“Assisted-GPS, or now more accurately ‘Assisted-GNSS’, is all about improving the user experience by enabling a device to get an accurate GNSS position as quickly and ubiquitously as possible,” said Adrian Stimpson, Senior VP Sales at Rx Networks. “With a new wave of GPS+GLONASS chipsets expected to launch in 2011, we upgraded our GPStream GRN service to seamlessly support both the US and Russian satellite constellations, thereby helping ensure the best possible positioning performance in these new devices.”
