ANNAPOLIS, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 05, 2009 -- TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a leading provider of mission-critical wireless communications, today announced the company signed in 2008 multiple long-term agreements with wireless carriers throughout the United States for its Enhanced 9-1-1 solutions (E9-1-1). TCS now provides Hosted Mobile Positioning Center (MPC) and Hosted Position Determining Entity (HPDE) capabilities for E9-1-1 customers including regional wireless providers Bluegrass Cellular, Flat Wireless, NTCH-Cleartalk-Colorado and nationwide wireless provider Cricket Communications.

TCS has offered its integrated MPC and HPDE solution longer than any other E9-1-1 vendor in the industry.
