Gateway Mobile Location Centre (GMLC) primarily supports Location-based Services (LBS). GMLCs are responsible for identifying the location of a mobile device based on the GPS data that it receives.
The two-day Globe Technical Workshop (July 31 to August 1, 2017) at the CEO Suites Manila was held to update Globe’s GMLC operations personnel and WSA’s support engineers on the capabilities and architecture of the Polaris Wireless OmniLocate MLC. The workshop was conducted by Polaris Wireless’ Software Engineer Jahan Ahmedifard and Network Engineer Jonathan Ridder. WSA’s Technical Services Engineers Jeff de Leon and Michael Bueno attended the workshop. Also present was Dex Yaptenco, WSA Technical Services Head.
The first day of the workshop opened with an introduction of LBS and Polaris Wireless OmniLocate MLC. It was followed by a discussion on the GMLC architecture in a mobile network. The afternoon session concentrated on how to configure the GMLC in the network.
The morning of Day 2 consisted of Troubleshooting – the trainers laid out varying scenarios and problems that might arise in a production environment and then guided the trainees on how to properly handle each one. Finally, the workshop moved to the Question and Answer session where the participants had a chance to ask for clarifications on topics discussed and other related matters.
This training made sure that the Globe GMLC operations personnel are well informed of the Polaris Wireless OmniLocate MLC.
