TeleCommunication Systems Speaking at CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment 2009 Conference

ANNAPOLIS, MD and SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment 2009 Conference, Booth 201 - TeleCommunication Systems, Inc.

The "LBS -- Vital to Mobile Interaction" panel will discuss the popularity of Location Based Services and how they are critical to both Enterprise and Consumer needs, but these applications have not yet reached critical mass or become an integral part of mobile living. Panelists will address the business of cultivating this need through mobile marketing and advertising and address the technological needs of coverage, reliability and interoperability. Market impediments to growing adoption of LBS will also likely be addressed.
