KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. -- TruePosition, a leading provider of wireless location-based solutions, today announced an agreement to provide its Finder system to i wireless. Finder will enable the Iowa based wireless carrier to meet the Phase II performance requirements of the Federal Communications Commission’s E-911 mandate.

TruePosition’s Finder system uses network-based Uplink Time Difference of Arrival (U-TDOA) and Angle of Arrival (AOA) technologies and has exceeded the FCC’s requirements in commercial deployments across the United States. It can also accommodate location-based commercial services and since it is a network – based wireless technology, does not require subscribers to replace or modify their existing handsets in any way.

“We are committed to providing our customers with the necessary tools needed to ensure their safety at all times, while laying the foundation for cutting-edge wireless location services in the future,” said Mike Haskins, Chief Executive Officer of i wireless. “TruePosition’s technology, demonstrated leadership in the wireless location industry, and strong commitment to meeting the needs of the rural carrier community made it a logical choice for our network,” added Haskins.

TruePosition, which has deployed its Finder system in most of the major markets in the United States, offers those same benefits specifically aimed at the rural operator community. It has optimized Finder’s technology to address the specific challenges of the rural community, without sacrificing performance or scalability.

“Our Finder system has been designed to provide the rural wireless operator community with the same reliability, diversity and quality of service you would expect from the nation’s largest operators,” said Chris Polito, Vice President of Sales at TruePosition. “i wireless is a leader in the rural carrier community and we are delighted to be working with it to bring all elements of location services to its customers.”
