Chennai, November 15, 2012: Thanks to the continued support of Government of Tamil Nadu and the other longstanding Sponsors, the Aircel Chennai Open, India and South Asia’s only ATP World Tour tennis event is back, promising to usher in another week of scintillating tennis action, featuring some of the finest players in the world. The tournament is scheduled to take place at Chennai’s SDAT Tennis Stadium from December 31, 2012 to January 6, 2013.

Stepping into the 18th edition of the event, the Aircel Chennai Open 2013 has confirmed participation from two players from the Top 10; World No. 6, Tomas Berdych and World No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic

This will be 26-year-old Tomas Berdych’s second visit to the tournament. He kicked off 2012 with a bang after winning the Hopman Cup for the Czech Republic with compatriot Petra Kvitová. The Czech continued his top form as he reached his career best at The US Open Championships 2012, where he stalled the progress of World No. 1 Roger Federer, defeating him 7-6(1), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to enter the quarter-finals. In September 2012, Berdych also led the Czech team to victory to set up a face-off against Spain in the Davis Cup Final later this year.

The sportsman further displayed his prowess in the game by seizing his second ATP title of 2012 by rallying to beat top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the Stockholm Open final progressing to play at the upcoming Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. This will be his third consecutive appearance at the season finale. Berdych, who had kept his hopes of qualification alive with victory over Tsonga lost to Djokovic and ended his run at the finals.

Janko, who will open his new season at the Aircel Chennai Open for the fifth successive year, led his country to a Davis Cup first round win over Sweden early this year. During the spring European clay swing, he compiled a 15-5 record, highlighted by a Semi final run at ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Madrid. He beat World No. 1 Novak Djokovic 7-6(2), 6-3 in the quarterfinals, before losing to Federer 6-2, 6-3 in a semi final encounter.

The right-hander then reached the Barcelona quarterfinals losing to Nadal but helped Serbia win the ATP World Tour Team Championship title at Dusseldorf. He captured his first ATP World Tour clay-court title with a hard-fought 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 victory over second seed Juan Monaco.

Tipsarevic had a perfect close to the season by qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. Unfortunately his run was halted by World No. 6 Juan Del Porto in the second match.

Commenting on the confirmation, Mr. M.A. Alagappan, President of Tamil Nadu Tennis Association said, “We are pleased to announce the participation of two Top 10 players. Tomas Berdych had a huge fan following in India after he reached the semi finals in 2011. He has had a great year thus far and we are sure he will continue his winning streak in Chennai. Tipsarevic is a regular to Chennai and loves to play here. He has been doing well in 2012 and I am sure his presence will ensure that fans will get to see some fantastic games being played during the tournament.

Thuppakki released on November 9th this year. Kajal Aggarwal who has for the most part of her career played the role of the sweet docile girl next door is very excited about her role in Thuppakki where she plays Boxer Nisha.

When asked more about her role, Kajal adds “In Thuppakki I play the role of Nisha who is this strong willed, impulsive girl and it is very different from the roles I have done previously. In fact when it came to the boxing sequences I watched a lot of Mary Kom’s matches.

A source from the set added that, “The role of Nisha was quite challenging for Kajal but she really managed to pull it off well. Kajal was extremely happy that she was given the opportunity to play the role of a boxer.

Qualcomm Expands Market-Leading IZat Location Platform to Enable Indoor Positioning Experiences for Consumers, Revenue Opportunities for Businesses

— IZat Indoor Location Technology Enables Next-Generation Positioning Capabilities

across Mobile Devices and Wi-Fi Infrastructure—

Mumbai — November 16, 2012 — Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) today announced that its networking and connectivity subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., expanded the Qualcomm IZat™ location platform with enhancements that bring precise indoor positioning capabilities to the leading brands of mobile phones, tablets and network infrastructure. IZat indoor location solutions will enable compelling consumer experiences in public places and help open revenue streams in the retail, travel, entertainment and hospitality industries.

These new indoor positioning capabilities enhance the end-to-end IZat location platform designed to deliver ubiquitous, always-on location. The platform is based on Qualcomm’s broad technology portfolio, including cellular, global navigation satellite system (GNSS), Wi-Fi, sensor and cloud-based assistance solutions, as well as the industry’s most widely deployed location core, already found in more than one billion devices on mobile networks worldwide.

With its leadership position, Qualcomm Technologies can now deliver new indoor location capabilities on a large number of mobile devices. The enhanced IZat location platform enables more precise positioning (within 3-5 meters) inside buildings to ensure an optimal consumer experience. The Qualcomm IZat Indoor Positioning Software debuted on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 processors, including the MSM8960 Pro and APQ8064 coupled with the MDM9x15. IZat indoor solutions provide up to 10 times greater accuracy in both open and closed environments over existing platforms. Additionally, the Snapdragon SDK for Android now includes tools and APIs that provide unique location capabilities for, and simplify the development of, indoor location-based apps for Snapdragon devices.

In addition to enhancing the location capabilities for mobile devices, the IZat location platform includes infrastructure technologies that enable Wi-Fi networking customers to deliver location-aware networks. Qualcomm Atheros’ latest 802.11ac and 802.11n access point solutions feature advanced Wi-Fi-based positioning calculations to pinpoint locations with greater accuracy.

“Outdoor navigation and location apps are already an essential part of the mobile experience, while indoor location represents the next frontier in location-based applications. With the unmatched capabilities of the IZat platform, Qualcomm is enabling precise indoor location and fostering a strong partner ecosystem,” said Amir Faintuch, senior vice president and general manager, consumer business unit, Qualcomm Atheros. “By coupling the industry’s leading mobile platform with enterprise-class Wi-Fi networking capabilities, Qualcomm is providing a solution that addresses the entire end-to-end indoor location framework. We are delivering the key elements of the indoor location ecosystem in collaboration with other technology leaders to offer more compelling mobile experiences for consumers and businesses alike.”

Indoor positioning systems require multiple network and mobile technologies, maps, applications and middleware working together. Qualcomm Atheros is collaborating with industry leaders to streamline the way location data is shared across elements of the ecosystem, and to accelerate the deployment of indoor location systems and services that deliver value to businesses and consumers.

Cisco is working with Qualcomm Atheros to optimize the indoor positioning capabilities of its Mobility Services Engine to enhance service discovery and location-based apps in public venues such as shopping malls, retail chains, hotels, airports, hospitals, college campuses, entertainment destinations and enterprises.

Meridian is a mobile-software company for location-based businesses. Used by everyone from the Venetian Hotel-Resort-Casino to the New York City subway system, Meridian’s platform is the first for developing both indoor navigation and location-based services for mobile apps.

“Location-based apps will revolutionize how businesses reach mobile consumers and enhance their experiences in a variety of public places, particularly indoors,” said Kiyo Kubo, chief executive officer of Meridian. “By working with Qualcomm and its partners, we can take full advantage of the latest mobile and network capabilities to create innovative apps with indoor positioning that deliver real value to consumers and businesses.”

The Qualcomm IZat indoor location platform is now available. To help drive the standardization and proliferation of indoor positioning solutions, Qualcomm is an active member of the In-Location Alliance. For more information, please visit www.qca.qualcomm.com.
