LocON, a platform capable of delivering location information, obtained through several technologies working seamlessly together, enables service providers to deploy services, which benefit from location information in large scale infrastructures. By employing the LocON platform, the access to underlying technologies becomes transparent for both, the end user and the service provider. The goal of LocON is also to develop a standard, which guarantees compliance with the platform and its services, as well on the hardware side as to the application layer.
