LBS (location based services) offers the possibility to determine the location data of a device. The location is determined by means of the distance from the device to the transmission towers in the vicinity. For example, when a secured M2M or LTE M simcard sees three cell towers, a triangulation can be initiated to retrieve the location data. For LBS, no special hardware or software is required to determine the location data. The more cell towers there are in the vicinity, the more accurately the location data is calculated.
