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.
