TCS Announces New Xypoint Mapping Server Release

New Features Include Commercial Vehicle and Turn Restrictions, Traffic-Based Routing, Fuzzy Location-Based Search, and Support for AJAX

ANNAPOLIS, MD–( EMWPresswire – March 31, 2008) – CTIA – Booth # 1341 – TeleCommunication

Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a leading provider of mission-critical

wireless communications and

content, today announced the availability of the Xypoint® Mapping Server

release 5.3 with new features that improve application developers’ ability

to rapidly build and deploy

location-based services.

The Xypoint Mapping Server has been widely used and enhanced for more than

a decade. Customers use it for sophisticated applications including

roadside service, directory assistance, vehicle tracking, and telematics.

Supporting Web, mobile and connected navigation applications, release 5.3

provides a technology platform for applications to request and receive

location, routing and point-of-interest information, as well as to generate

tiled maps.

Key features of this new release include:

--  Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) support. This feature enables

    continuous panning of maps for interactive web applications. Companies can

    create location-based services for their customers using standards-based

    maps that are combined with rich content. Rather than viewing a static map,

    users can continuously scroll to view a desired area on the map.


--  Commercial Vehicle and Turn Restrictions. These two features enable

    companies deploying commercial location-based services to optimize routes

    or develop alternate driving directions based on commercial vehicle

    profiles and road restrictions, saving time and decreasing costs through

    improved routing.


--  Traffic-based Routing. Developers can integrate real-time traffic

    information into their location-based applications to evaluate the effect

    of traffic conditions on a particular route or to generate unique alternate

    routes based on real-time traffic conditions.


--  Fuzzy Search. This enhanced search capability enables the application

    of fuzzy logic to provide a rich location-based search capability. This

    enables applications to search by partial business names or misspelled

    names, and to provide ranked search results based on proximity or along a



“TCS’ Xypoint Mapping Server has a long history of providing mission

critical, location-based solutions to telecommunication companies and their

partners,” stated Timothy Lorello, Senior Vice President and Chief

Marketing Officer. “With this release, we are providing mapping and

navigation support features with powerful user interfaces, and the flexible

content integration features allow developers to customize and enhance the

value of the applications to the end user.”
