Abstract

In the United States, the Federal Commun- ications Commission (FCC) has issued a mandate, commonly known as the FCC E911 Phase 2 ruling which states, that by October 2001, a wireless inter- connect service provider must be capable of deliver- ing location information accurate to 125 meters 67% of the time for 911 emergency calls. This enhanced capability must be provided upon request of a Public Safety Answering Point which has met specific funding and provisioning requirements.
