BOSTON, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leading
provider of automated E911 solutions to the enterprise, announced today

deliver location-based services, such as enhanced 911 (E911), while helping
to reduce server and administrative costs. The announcement was made at
Mobile Internet World.
"Service providers are looking for location solutions that can help
them provide accurate location information for emergency services, as well

location determination, conveyance and update capabilities that support a
wide range of mobile devices and platforms. The Location Information Server

Systems (OSS/BSS) and devices are updated with the context-aware real-time
user location data needed to enable emerging location-enabled applications.

standards-compliant, advanced technology platform with an extensive track
record for interoperability with market-leading solutions such as RedSky's
