IBM goes local with wireless

IBM on Tuesday will continue its push into the wireless industry with the introduction of a new server that provides location-based services, which in turn let carriers send location-specific information directly to a cell phone subscriber. The new applications, which IBM plans to sell to telephone service providers, will be part of the WebSphere Everyplace Server that IBM unleashed Monday at SuperComm 2001, a communications industry conference in Atlanta. The location-based services software running on IBM's server was developed by SignalSoft, which has been making location-based services software since 1997.
