is offering its new Global Cell-ID, which can help optimize routes or schedules in real time based on cell-ID information from devices in more than 100 countries, even without GPS.
Global Cell-ID will make application development easier by giving developers access to cost-effective application programming interfaces, rather than having each developer build and maintain its own location databases for managing machine-to-machine solutions.
