Companies will offer location-sensitive wireless data services.

Autodesk Location Services, a division of Autodesk, Inc., and BEA Systems, Inc., an application infrastructure software company, agreed to jointly offer location-sensitive wireless data services to carriers. The two companies have been working together over the last 18 months to integrate their technologies to create a scalable and standards-based architecture for the deployment of location-based services. Autodesk Location Services is using the J2EE-compliant BEA WebLogic E-Business Platform in its Autodesk LocationLogic platform to manage the scalability, transaction processing, and application server needs of a wireless operator.
