collections, including customer service, title management, inventory tracking, auction sales, collection of end of term and credit loss recoveries.

TTPCom Latest Triband Modules to Deliver Cost-Effective Matrix Location Functionality from CPS

Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) January 13, 2005

TTPCom Ltd, the world’s leading independent supplier of digital wireless technology, today announces that its triband GSM/ GPRS wireless modem module designs are now available with high accuracy location functionality based on Matrix technology from CPS (Cambridge Positioning Systems Limited). The integration of CPS’ award-winning Matrix location software provides a cost effective method of delivering fast and accurate location fixes.

TTPCom’s flexible and compact ITM338 and ITM339 modules are designed to fit a wide range of applications within the rapidly growing machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer markets. Each module meets all operator and regulatory requirements and uses the same high quality silicon and software that the world’s leading manufacturers rely on.

The integration of CPS’s Matrix location technology enables the modules to be rapidly located to an accuracy of sub-100m. The modules use the existing GSM network infrastructure to transfer location information to the network using standard GPRS or SMS. This greatly reduces the rollout costs traditionally associated with high accuracy mobile location technology. Matrix will also work effectively indoors and in urban environments where satellite-based systems fail to perform and, because Matrix integration requires only a software upgrade to the mobile device, this technology provides cost and size advantages over GPS solutions.

Chris Wade, Chief Executive of CPS said: “Operators around the world are actively evaluating and selecting Matrix as the location technology of choice for GSM. The availability of these new Matrix-enabled devices offers more choice to the market and significantly lowers the cost of entry for end users seeking high accuracy location capability to support corporate and enterprise services. This new development will also further strengthen our relationship with TTPCom and we look forward to working closely with the company on the significant new opportunities that are now emerging.”

Stephen Larder, MD of TTPCom’s module business adds: “Our GPRS technology is considered by many to be the best in the market as it has been adopted in a broad cross section of leading products world-wide. We are delighted to be able to enhance the functionality of our already popular module designs to enable new market opportunities. In particular, our Matrix-enabled modules address needs where previously the high cost, complexity and power-consumption of GPS-based solutions has greatly limited the adoption of location based applications.”

The modules will be showcased at the 3GSM World Congress 2005 in Cannes in February where both TTPCom (stand no A3) and CPS (stand no C21) are exhibiting.

Potential uses for these new devices include:

discreet tracking devices for vehicles for both personal safety and logistics

tracking of ‘at risk’ individuals including workers, children and security personnel

resource tracking of high value devices including laptops and cargoes

About Cambridge Positioning Systems

Cambridge Positioning Systems Limited (CPS) is the key enabler for high accuracy location in the GSM wireless world. Our innovative Matrix products – based on standardised E-OTD technology – allow network operators and enterprises to develop new services that improve the safety of their customers and deliver profitable applications.

CPS’ Matrix technology – winner of the Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Award 2004 – is a unique software-only solution that combines sub-100m accuracy with rapid location time-to-fix and consistent performance across outdoor and indoor environments. Easy to deploy, Matrix requires software-enabled standard GSM devices and network server.

Chicago Public Schools Partners with Knowledge Delivery Systems to Deliver Groundbreaking Professional Learning to 22 OS4 Reinvestment Schools over Three Years


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

As part of the key initiative to transform its lowest-performing schools, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) Office of Strategic School Support Services (OS4) has partnered with Knowledge Delivery Systems (KDS), a leader in strategic blended professional development (PD) solutions for K-12 schools, districts, and educators. This three-year intensive professional development partnership at 22 Reinvestment Schools will improve instructional practice in classrooms to accelerate the academic growth for all students by ensuring quality instruction in every classroom.

KDS provides a unique approach to professional learning that is deeply engrained in the latest research on effective PD. KDSs approach is grounded in research that shows that it takes an average of 49 hours of immersive and sustained professional development to boost student achievement. (Reviewing the Evidence on How Teacher Professional Development Affects Student Achievement, U.S. Department of Education, 2007). This is not a traditional form of sit and get professional development, where teachers passively sit through limited PD sessions.

KDS utilizes flipped learninga highly effective blended model that includes 50 hours of high-quality online coursework supported by ongoing face-to-face coaching, observation, feedback, and in-depth instruction for optimal professional learning. This model actually shifts practice in a way traditional practice doesnt and cantfor increased student achievement. KDS has implemented this radical professional learning strategy successfully with leading districts such as the School District of Philadelphia, where teachers and administrators who participated in KDS PD coursework demonstrated up to a 77% increase in understanding of critical concepts and strategies.

In these accountability-driven times, districts often focus their time and money on teacher evaluations to identify a small number of ineffective teachers. CPS is, instead, focused on providing a system of intensive support for teachers to help them improve their practice, which impacts all teachers and helps all students. We are providing effective professional learning that improves teaching practice on a large scale for a lot of students, very efficiently, said Alvin Crawford, CEO of Knowledge Delivery Systems. We are proud to partner with CPS and OS4s initiative to present an innovative approach to individualized professional learning, fully aligned with district priorities to instill 21st Century skills in students. Were excited to make an impact in the OS4 Reinvestment Schools and help them in their mission to ensure every child receives a rigorous, high-quality education that prepares them for success in college, career, and life.

KDS has designed this program in collaboration with a cross-functional CPS team to meet the needs of OS4 schools and encompass intensive support for teachers from both virtual and on-site coaches. KDS course offerings for CPS teachers and principals for the 2013-2014 school year include: Transforming School Culture, Common Core State Standards in both literacy and mathematics, and Assessment and the Common Core, among others. As part of this initiative, OS4 held a Chicago Executive Leadership Academy (CELA) meeting for school principals from the 22 Reinvestment Schools and the School Improvement Grant (SIG) program schools on Saturday, September 21, 2013. The professional learning day included a leadership workshop with KDS and sessions with Dr. Anthony Muhammad, a national expert on transforming school culture.

CPS recognizes the importance of providing both school leaders and teachers with ongoing, comprehensive professional development and support that will help them reach their full potential in driving student success, said Barbara Byrd-Bennett, CPS CEO. We are committed to the OS4 reinvestment strategy of supporting high-need schools through intensive PD, and we are excited to pair our OS4 schools with Knowledge Delivery Systems in these efforts.
