Skyhook location software uses algorithms and cellular signals to seamlessly track the position of phones, wearables, asset trackers, and other cellular-connected devices, including ones that roam across multiple networks. With a number of flexible integration options, it provides accurate, precise positioning without excessive battery drain or hardware expenses.
Skyhook cellular location can be utilized on its own or as part of a larger Precision Location hybrid positioning system intelligently combining Wi-Fi and GPS signals.
Cellular positioning is often reliable in areas without Wi-Fi and in areas that GPS/satellite signals struggle to work, such as indoors or dense urban areas, making it effective for a wide range of uses that include:
Flexible integration options include customizable SDKs, firmware, cloud APIs, and embedded solutions. This flexibility allows location to be integrated at the network, hardware, chipset, application, or operating system level, and has helped establish Skyhook as a leading provider of chipset and drop-in location replacement solutions.
Many devices are constantly in contact with cell towers in order to maintain connectivity. Skyhook software can use the same signals to determine device location, with zero incremental impact on battery life.
Skyhook software intelligently taps into a global location network with more than 200 million cellular IDs and a suite of tools and APIs to position connected devices with accuracy and precision.
Skyhook pioneered mobile location since the first generation of smartphones; we have deployed nationwide U-TDOA E-911 networks for AT&T and T-Mobile. Our knowledgeable team provides always-on support throughout the entire relationship. We customize each location solution to deliver the accuracy and features you need, without forcing you to pay for those you don’t.Learn More
Cellular positioning is a highly effective and configurable approach for devices built without hardware to support GNSS or Wi-Fi positioning. It also provides longer battery and device life when GPS-level accuracy is not necessary.
Standalone crowd-sourced ECID positioning methods with global coverage, in accordance with the 3GPP TS 38.305 technical specification.
Works for all location techniques (TOA, AOA, RTT) and network types (Cat-1, Cat-M, NB-IoT, LoRaWAN, GSM, CDMA, LTE, and UMTS).
SIM and eSIM integration options enable approaches like multilateration, signal strength, and timing measurements.
Integration options to support Wi-Fi/Cell network-only or hybrid location results.
