Executive summary
Mobile location platforms enable three categories of location-based services (LBS): public safety, national security and law enforcement, as well as commercial services. Over 70 percent of all emergency calls are placed from mobile phones and it can often be difficult for callers to convey their location to first responders. Location platforms can not only reduce the time to find the location of the caller, but also enable more efficient handling of simultaneous calls from people reporting the same incident to distinguish single accidents from multiple events. Another use case is public warning systems that locate and send messages to all handsets within a geo-fenced area. Government agencies can use location platforms and data mining systems for infrastructure protection and location-enhanced lawful intercept.

Location technologies can be divided into handset-based technologies (such as GPS) with intelligence mainly in the handset, network-based technologies (for instance Cell-ID, RF Pattern Matching and U-TDOA) with intelligence mainly in the network, as well as hybrid technologies (for instance A-GPS and OTDOA) with intelligence in both the handset and the network. Several new hybrid location technologies are in development, aiming to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) in difficult environments. In pure indoor environments where GNSS is unavailable, the most common location technologies rely on Wi-Fi location using RF Pattern Matching or multilateration, augmented with data from sensors in the handset such as accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and barometer.
