Give your app the ability to visualize mobiles on a map. Get the coordinates of any AT&T Terminal within the United States; this includes any mobile device – smart phones, feature phones with no GPS, IoT/M2M “Things” as long as they have an AT&T SIM in them.
We understand that apps vary in their needs; while some apps need high location accuracy at the cost of taking time to compute those accurate locations, there are others that can work with the general location area as long as they get that information quickly. With AT&T’s Location Services API, you get to decide if accuracy or a speedy response is critical to your app.
AT&T Location Services, also known as AT&T Next Generation External Application Gateway Location Service (AT&T NGEAG Location Service) enables you to build innovative apps and platforms using standards-based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to simplify the process.
AT&T Location Services interface, exposed using Parlay X SOAP standards, enables your application to request the location coordinates of any AT&T terminal within the United States. An AT&T Terminal can be a mobile device or M2M/IoT “Thing” using an AT&T SIM.
The API provides you, the app developer, the ability to set Tolerance values for response time tolerances, Fallback to Enhanced Cell ID based location when A-GPS is unavailable, and Retry wait times.
The API documentation shall provide a technical reference for using the Parlay X Terminal Location API including
