ESRI Deploys OpenLS GeoMobility Server at TeliaSonera

Redlands, California—ESRI today announced the successful deployment of its ArcIMS Open Location Services (OpenLS) connector by ESRI Sweden as part of a major effort to improve TeliaSonera's mapping engine capabilities for location-based services across Scandinavia. The ArcIMS OpenLS connector is based on the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.™, OpenLS™ specification.

ESRI Sweden deployed TeliaSonera's OpenLS platform based on ESRI's ArcSDE, ArcIMS, ArcIMS Route Server, and the ArcIMS OpenLS connector. Together with Tele Atlas data, it is now possible for TeliaSonera to provide one standardized interface to all of its third party application developers. The architecture is scalable and easily extensible for use within any TeliaSonera operating country.

Scandinavian mobile operators Telia, Sonera, and Netcom launched their location-based services in late 2000. At that time, each mobile operator implemented different GIS mapping engines with different map data sources and formats and proprietary programmable interfaces. After the Telia and Sonera merger in 2002, TeliaSonera initiated a Nordic-wide project to standardize the disparate systems upon one common geospatial server platform.

"When we started the project, our goal was to implement a centralized geospatial platform with a single data source in one format and a standardized application program interface that our developer partners could easily develop against," says Jörgen Jonsson, head of Location-Based Services for TeliaSonera. "ESRI was one of the few vendors capable of delivering a cost-effective solution that met our needs and providing us with an option to deploy hosted Web services in the future," Jonsson concluded.

TeliaSonera's mobile users across the Nordic region can choose from a wide variety of location-based services applications including Friend Finder, find-the-nearest, traffic, weather, and mobile resource management services; games; and many more.
