u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, announced that its current GNSS platforms, from u-blox M8 and beyond, support the recently completed BeiDou navigation satellite system modernizations, improving the availability of GNSS positioning services.

The opening ceremony of the BeiDou-3 global navigation satellite system (GNSS) was held in Beijing on July 31, officially celebrating the expansion of coverage offered by the critical Chinese space infrastructure to a global user base.

As a global supplier of industry-leading GNSS positioning and wireless communication technologies, u-blox has been driving technological innovation and deeply involved in the Chinese market for many years.
