Geo-location Solutions for Mobile Phones
Nov 11, 2011
The mobile geo-location industry emerged in the United States (US) in the late 90's, after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated that all emergency calls (E911) from mobile devices must be located by wireless operators/carriers with specific location accuracy and reliability requirements. A variety of low, medium and high accuracy performance location solutions emerged as a result of the mandate. However, only the high accuracy solutions were deployed by carriers for meeting the FCC mandates for emergency call applications.
