A Location Configuration Protocol (LCP) provides a means for a Device to request information about its physical location from an access network. A Location Information Server (LIS) is the server that provides location information that is available due to the knowledge it has about the network and physical environment.

Using Device-Provided Location-Related Measurements in Location Configuration Protocols
This document describes a protocol for a Device to provide location- related measurement data to a Location Information Server (LIS) within a request for location information. Location-related measurement information provides observations concerning properties related to the position of a Device; this information could be data about network attachment or about the physical environment. A LIS is able to use the location-related measurement data to improve the accuracy of the location estimate it provides to the Device. A basic set of location-related measurements are defined, including common modes of network attachment as well as assisted Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) parameters.
