Terms and definitions in messaging

Multichannel messaging service is based on a variety of telecommunication and Internet technologies. In the description of services, we often use abbreviations that may not always be known to you. Here we have compiled a glossary of terms and definitions used in the industry.

LBS

Location-Based Services (LBS) are services or applications that center around a user’s location in a mobile environment. Location-based services utilise location-sensitive technology, such as Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) or network-based solutions, to deliver services or applications to a wireless device such as a mobile phone. These services can include finder applications that let mobile phone users locate friends or family, businesses or landmarks. They can also deliver maps, directions, or traffic reports.
