TAP GEO enables the Mobile Network Operator (MNO) to acquire the location of connected devices including mobile phones, a modem supporting a machine-to-machine or Internet of Things application.
TAP GEO identifies the customers position without reliance upon GPS receivers in devices or expensive Location Based Service (LBS) enablers inside the network.
TAP GEO is used in the geo-location of Customer Quality of Experience. For the benefit of improving service quality, TAP GEO provides MNOs with a location mapping to reflect areas with good / average / poor and zero service so that they can focus their investments in service improvements where they will benefit most customers.
