         Discovering the Local Location Information Server (LIS)

Abstract

   Discovery of the correct Location Information Server (LIS) in the    local access network is necessary for Devices that wish to acquire    location information from the network.  A method is described for the    discovery of a LIS in the access network serving a Device.  Dynamic    Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) options for IP versions 4 and 6    are defined that specify a domain name.  This domain name is then    used as input to a URI-enabled NAPTR (U-NAPTR) resolution process.
