What is LTE Location Based Services?

Location Based Services (LBS) involves the process of determining where a device is located and reporting that location to an authorized recipient of the data. Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Wi-Fi or Bluetooth based solutions are not always accurate and cannot be used as the sole technology of choice for absolute position accuracy. A device can be in a location where one or all of these signals may not be present, a highly dense urban environment with reduced satellite visibility for example or in a location where there is no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth beacon. These limitations have opened the door for LTE cellular based alternatives that have been developed within 3GPP systems standards. Today, positioning currently requires a patchwork of networks for complete positioning solution from GNSS to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, beacons, and cellular (4G/5G). For positioning to be truly scalable, low cost, low power, and support mission critical positioning (E911) these new LTE Location Based Services can offer a solution — provided the accuracy can meet the needs of the underlying application. This is precisely what PHY Wireless technology has achieved.
