Combain On-Prem Location Server is server software you install in your own premises. The software will expose an API that will help you to locate wireless connected devices. By submitting cell-ids or Wi-Fi MAC addresses in the proximity of a device to this API, it will respond with the geographical coordinates for that device.  

– Enhanced security and privacy

– Highly scalable, ultra low latency solution

– Accessed locally with HTTP

The software uses Combain’s global database of cell-ids, Wi-Fi’s. The database is continuously updated by our algorithms processing millions of positions from global crowdsourcing and these updates can be synced or push to your server installation.

This server software is used by customers with very high requirements on request volume, latency, security, privacy and operational control.  

The target device to be located, makes a scan of cellular networks and/or WI-Fi access points near it. The list of scan results, cell-ids and/or Wi-Fi MAC addresses, and their signal strength, is sent to this location API located in your cloud. 

The software will look-up Cell-tower cell-ids and indoor Wi-Fi and Bluetooth MAC addresses in the local database, perform trilateration based on signal strength, and then return a geographical coordinate (latitude, longitude) which is the most likely position of the device as a response to the API request. The error of the location depends on the density of radio transmitters. A typical median error for outdoor Cell-ID positioning is around 150m in urban areas, which is world class compared to any other geolocation service.

The Combain global database includes millions of cell-ids from all around the world. You select how much of this data to be licensed and used in your local instance of the database.
