Microsoft Selects Navizon for Geolocation
Posted on 3-Mar-2010 14:56 | Filed under: News



Navizon Inc. has signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft Corp., under which Microsoft will use Navizon’s global location database to provide an enhanced experience to its mobile users.

This agreement with Microsoft validates the power of Navizon's crowd-sourcing technology," said Cyril Houri, founder and CEO of Navizon, Inc. “We are excited to see Microsoft join our fast-growing list of customers who have chosen Navizon for geo-positioning”.

Navizon, a software-only hybrid wireless positioning system, helps users navigate in most major cities across the globe. Navizon works by triangulating signals broadcasted from Wi-Fi access points and cellular towers, and the company's software is now embedded in numerous smartphone applications which are fast becoming essential tools for the modern urban lifestyle.

Navizon's diverse user community is spread across various platforms and carriers. Through rapid expansion in numbers, the community of users is able to constantly improve the precision and success rates of its wireless geolocation system.
