Considerations and Challenges (PDF) Location Based Services are
already being launched. The trend is driven by both regulation and
competition. · Operators are currently key, but require cooperation with
other players in order to be able to offer attractive LBS. · In order to
remain competitive and leverage their huge investments mobile operators
should consider various aspects when offering LBS, including, network
technology evolution, regulation, standardization, user acceptance, and
the availability of attractive services. · This white paper discusses
current trends and lists the major areas for consideration to mobile
operators, when launching Location Based Services.
