IntelliOne Expands into Europe; Announces TrafficAid(R) IPTV Project with Georgia Tech Ireland



    ATLANTA, and ATHLONE, Ireland, Oct. 25 /CNW/ -- IntelliOne Technologies,
the premier traffic information company that measures roadway speed by
instantly analyzing mobile phone network usage, announced today the creation
of IntelliOne Europe, Ltd., with headquarters in Athlone, Ireland. The company
is also announcing an industry-leading research & development (R&D) project
with Georgia Tech Ireland, to create an Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)
interface for IntelliOne's TrafficAid personal traffic guidance system.
    IntelliOne Europe will operate as a subsidiary of IntelliOne
Technologies, perform R&D for next-generation mobile positioning and
geospatial analysis, and manage sales and support for customers and partners
throughout Europe.
    "We are fully committed to investing in our Ireland-based European
operations and thrilled to be participating in this exciting IPTV project with
GT Ireland," says IntelliOne CEO Ronald Herman. "Delivering TrafficAid to
digital cable subscribers through partners will complete our 'three-screen'
content delivery strategy: personal traffic guidance on the Web, mobile
devices and now IP television."
    "Georgia Tech Ireland welcomes IntelliOne Europe as a partner in our
digital media research initiative," states Dr. Krish Ahuja, Director and
General Manager.  "We believe live and interactive traffic information
delivered to consumers through IPTV is most compelling and look forward to
collaborating with IntelliOne as we deploy our national test bed."
    Supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, IntelliOne
developed its proprietary, patented Roadway Speed Measurement System based on
the fact that wireless devices in motion communicate constantly with multiple
towers, generating reports used by mobile operators to maintain and optimize
their networks. The IntelliOne data results in "as-it-happens traffic
reporting," greatly surpassing current collection methods such as in-road
detectors, cameras and helicopters.
