REHOVOT, Israel, and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, February 10, 2011
/PRNewswire/ — CellGuide, a leading host based GNSS solution provider, and
Rx Networks, a leading mobile positioning-assistance technology company,
today announced that they are collaborating in bringing to market a solution
comprising of CellGuide’s GPSense(TM) Multi Beacon Engine and Rx Networks’
suite of location assistance products.

The Rx Networks GPStream(TM) and XYBRID(TM) solutions are integrated with
CellGuide’s GPSense(TM) location engine, which supports CellGuide’s ACLYS GPS
chip or CGsnap GPS IP baseband. Within the integrated solution, the Rx
Networks suite provides both assisted services for the GPS technology and
complementary hybrid location technology for WiFi and Cellular-based devices.
In combination, the technologies provide a comprehensive, end-to-end location
solution for a broad range of platforms and operating systems, including
Android, Linux, WinCE and Windows Mobile.

CellGuide’s GPSense(TM) engine supports the following Rx Networks
technologies:

    - SUPL 1.0 client: Mobile network standards-compliant client.
    - GPStream PGPS(TM): a multi-day extended ephemeris solution that
      provides improved GPS sensitivity and faster times to first fix,
      enhancing the user experience.
    - GPStream SAGPS(TM): an extended ephemeris solution that does not
      require network connectivity to operate.
    - XYBRID RT(TM): a real-time hybrid positioning service for devices
      equipped with WiFi, Cellular or GPS.
    - XYBRID SUPL LE(TM): A SUPL 1.0 service hosted by Rx Networks over
      its carrier-grade, 99.999% service infrastructure.

“Rx Networks’ products effectively augment our GPSense(TM) location
engine,” said Boaz Efroni Rotman, VP of Sales and Marketing at CellGuide.
“The combined solution provides our customer with an advanced hybrid
positioning platform that can be used seamlessly both indoors and outdoors,
for various solutions including mobile handsets, tablets, and car
infotainment systems.”

“CellGuide is a valuable partner with their full utilization of our
location solutions., said Adrian Stimpson, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing at
Rx Networks. “Their GPSense(TM) and our products will jointly enable the
market to develop and implement the next stage in location-based applications
for use anywhere.”
