Information about the current geographic coordinates of a mobile terminal

The SC.LBS complex collects information about the location of subscribers and organizes the messaging in certain geographic zones. In addition, the platform provides aggregated data of mobile network subscribers: gender, age, ARPU, roaming usage, tariff plan, costs of SMS or voice communication, etc. The received data help operators and content providers to quickly create new services or improve existing ones.

Information about marketing profile of subscribers and translocations history is available in the platform web interface. Flexible policy of access to functions of the web interface allows to use it both for administrative purposes and for operation of MNO’s partners.
