TORONTO -- Redknee Solutions Inc. ("Redknee") (AIM: RKN), a leading provider of innovative software that monetizes and personalizes services and content for mobile operators, today announced the availability of Enhanced Location Services (ELS) 6.0. This integration of commercial and emergency location based services into one platform enables operators not only to address regulatory requirements for emergency services, but also to deliver new location based services for both consumer and business subscribers at a substantially reduced cost.

According to recent research, worldwide subscribers to location based communications services on mobile devices are expected to increase approximately 170 percent in 2008, while revenue is expected to grow equally as fast. The ELS 6.0 solution equips operators with the tools required to meet a growing demand for location based services while realizing faster time-to-market and measurable return-on-investment.

Tier 1 US operators are able to significantly reduce the capital and operating expenses associated with their location based services deployments using Redknee's ELS solution. At one such installation, ELS not only increases the operator's return-on-investment by enabling both commercial and emergency location services, it also delivers increased reliability through a multi-site redundant deployment.

"Operators are realizing the potential benefits of extending their initial location services investment to maximize revenue-generating opportunities by enabling the delivery of new and innovative third party applications and services," said Lucas Skoczkowski, CEO at Redknee. "Through its real-time access to location data, Redknee's ELS solution provides operators with one platform to address emergency service requirements while at the same time providing a standards-based platform for enabling commercial location services."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
