Indonesia's Telkomsel will deploy location-based services as a value-added offering to mobile subscribers.

Telkomsel, which has more than 50 million active subscribers, is investing in technology from Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN).

NSN said the Indonesian telco will integrate into its network the vendor's

intelligent Gateway Mobile Location Centre (iGMLC) platform.

The solution will enable Telkomsel to launch new value-added applications such as Information Finder, which will allow users to access location specific information of important facilities, such as hospitals and police stations.

"With hundreds of cities scattered in the vast regions of Indonesia, we believe that location-based services will not only be a luxury application, but also a necessity," said Andreuw Th. A.F., Telkomsel vice president for network operations.
