AirSage teams up with Verizon Wireless for real-time traffic data

Signalling data from use on Verizon Wireless' network will be made anonymous and integrated into AirSage's patented Wireless Signal Extraction (WiSETM) Technology platform, significantly enhancing AirSage's traffic coverage and accuracy by quadrupling the number of signalling messages.

When the data is fully integrated, more than twelve billion signalling messages across more than 200,000 centreline miles of roadway will power applications for government agencies, businesses and consumers.

AirSage CEO Cy Smith points out that millions of people are already using the company's traffic and travel insights through applications such as Google Maps, Real Traffic, and AirSage Real-Time Traffic (AirSage RTTTM) – a patented real-time traffic data service that uses anonymous location information derived from wireless carrier data.

While current applications centre on real-time traffic conditions and travel times, AirSage is also building out location-enhanced services for the retail, financial and emergency management industries.
