GPS is often taken for granted. But how do you find out where you are, or the location of a connected device, when a GPS signal is weak or non-existent?
At the very least this can be frustrating. At worst, it can mean lost time and lost business.
HERE Network Positioning solves this problem with a dynamic, global positioning solution that combines and synthesizes data from Wi-Fi and cell IDs.
Online and offline modes
Taking vehicle sensor data pooled from cars on the road and correlating it with local weather conditions (where applicable), drivers - and in the future, self driving cars - can feel confident that the warnings they see are trust worthy.
Truly global coverage
HERE Network Positioning uses GSM, WCDMA, LTE, CDMA and TD-SCDMA cellular networks, as well as Wi-Fi hotspots and neighbor cell-based positioning. The result is accurate location services anywhere, including China.
HERE Network Positioning only requires a low level of power to operate effectively, meaning the service can remain on at all times. This enables quick and easy positioning, anytime and anywhere.
Enhanced accuracy in challenging environments
HERE Network Positioning serves as a GPS rescue in difficult urban environments, typically when GPS is not performing well due to multipaths.

With online and offline positioning, accurate global coverage, plus effective positioning under low levels of power, weak GPS signal is never a barrier for customers.
Truly global and always up to date.
By leveraging a global database of cell IDs and Wi-Fi access points that mobile devices can detect, HERE Network Positioning obtains a geographic position within a specific confidence radius.
The database includes millions of cell IDs and billions Wi-Fi access point locations, all dynamically updated and populated by millions of devices around the world.
