Nordic enhances commercial support for nRF9160 SiP cellular IoT customers with launch of Cloud location services


nRF Cloud Location Services enables customers to access trusted support for fleets of cellular IoT devices, including cellular network and assisted & predicted GPS location services, and firmware over the air updates

Nordic Semiconductor today announces the launch of its ‘nRF Cloud Location Services’. The Cloud-based product enables customers to access detailed, fast and accurate commercial location services for their nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP)-powered cellular IoT devices.

nRF Cloud Location Services builds upon Nordic’s versatile cellular IoT connectivity enabler, ‘nRF Cloud’. nRF Cloud Location Services will enable Nordic customers to access a full commercial location services model once their nRF9160 SiP-powered cellular IoT products are deployed. nRF Cloud will offer those same customers firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updates for devices in the field. 

Cell and GPS Location Services 

The nRF Cloud Location Services offering will initially comprise location services using ‘single-’ and ‘multi-cell’ location, and Assisted- and Predicted-GPS for indoor and outdoor applications.
