The advantages of the SUPL-based A-GPS solution toward deployment of location-based services include the following:
1) Employment has only a minimal effect on existing mobile infrastructure
2) Quick and easy deployment
3) Realization of global roaming of location services
In collaboration with other services, this A-GPS service platform solution enables creation of new value-added services for consumers, mobile operators and business users who utilize mobile GPS in daily business.
Vodafone K.K. in Japan is the first user of NEC's premium A-GPS solution, which complies with an early version of SUPL, and employs it as the core system of their newly launched GPS navigation service, "Vodafone live!

"We will continue to promote our OMA SUPL-based A-GPS solutions to the global market and develop new solutions that provide even greater added value to telecom carriers." said Yasushi Yoshikawa, General Manager of NEC's Mobile Business Development Division.
