SmartPoint's Patented Location Plus® System Enables New Game-Changing Location Services.
SmartPoint's Location Plus® System re-enables U.S. Wireless Carriers to provide their customers game changing, state-of-the-art real-time, micro-location (RTML) information, communications, and services like never before. Location Plus provides incredibly valuable hyper-local convenience, efficiency, safety, security, and privacy in order to help wireless subscribers save time, money, and fuel/emissions while protecting owning and controlling their location in real-time.
From real-time Covid19 information for any location to Emergency 9-1-1 and everything in between, Location Plus® may become the most valuable non-voice, text, or data service ever offered by wireless carriers!
For several years now, U.S. based wireless carriers have been unable to provide enterprise level carrier network location information to their subscribers and other valuable and potentially life-saving services like AAA Roadside Assistance because of privacy and other concerns. This has prevented even rudimentary location capabilities from being integrated into voice and text services, relegating all location services to be delivered through mobile applications and websites. While these services are OK, location privacy is controlled by Google and Apple, who make billions every year from search and advertising services that leverage mobile users' extremely personal location and other private information. Unfortunately, wireless carriers have virtually no control or input into these rules and system. This has also kept wireless carriers from providing robust location services to their subscribers with a simple, cohesive system with consumer-centric and controlled privacy safeguards. Thus, the current sytem includes thousands of location based apps and websites and has made Google and Apple the de facto primary privacy protectors for consumers, despite the billions they make from exploiting this private and personal information every year.
Enter SmartPoint's new Location Plus® real-time permission-based, adjustable privacy settings.
Location Plus will change this dynamic and enable wireless carriers to provide their customers with new powerful controls of their location information, digital maps, directions and other services, and hyper-micro-location navigation information, services, and communications. Location Plus is made possible by our multi-patented real-time permission-based controls that empower carriers to enable consumers to control their own location information in real-time, and enabling carriers to once again be the overarching guardian of their customers privacy, initially over voice and text channels, but potentially over all data channels as more and more consumers elect to use the robust privacy conrols included in the Location Plus®. For the first time ever, users will be able to control their own micro-location information in real-time and determine who, where, when, how, why, if, and to what extent others can access their location information through their personal phone numbers, biometric attributes (e.g. facial and voice recognition), social media handles, and all other personal identifiers. Location Plus® is a single solution designed to work across numerous services and provide subscribers real-time variable privacy controls so that such information is available to others for maps, directions, and related services ONLY at the option of the owner/user and can be variably and conditionally controlled in real-time. With Location Plus® users control the use of their RTML information by third parties to provide location services users want -- if, when and how users want! While initially these controls will likely be limited to calling, voice and text messaging services, Location Plus® Privacy is expected ultimately to expand to all apps, websites, and services, enabling users to have total control over their location inforamtion through a single unified solution. This will enable wireless carriers to leverage their networks, including their new distributed and multi-antenna 5G networks, to not only provide more robust, accurate and precise location information and services, but to enable the next generation of such services to owners and owner-authorized service providers, all the while ensuring that owners maintain absolute control of their private location information. This is a huge win for consumers, and it allows trusted wireless carriers to finally offer better and more protected location services than apps and websites over browsers.
Combining these capabilities with SmartPoint's patented 1M® locator system also enables -- importantly again at all times subject to the owner's control -- a new level of infinitely precise 2D, 3D, and even privacy encrypted micro-location referencing, directions and other mapping services that are far more accurate, usable and functional than any other location referencing technologies or services available today or on the horizon. These foundational technologies and systems combine to enable wireless carriers (and others) the ability to leverage their existing and new carrier and private enterprise 5G wireless networks to provide digital maps and related RTML mapping services to end users like never before. This platform opens up several new categories of RTML mapping services over digital services, including calling, voice and text, which also makes these important services available to and controllable by a much broader range of consumers.
