Polaris Wireless signed a multiyear, multiphase contract with the Alaska Wireless Network for a wireless location solution that complies with the FCC’s most recent E9-1-1 wireless location accuracy mandate. GCI Communication owns the Alaska Wireless Network.

The first phase of the contract extension includes the Polaris Wireless Evolved Serving Mobile Location Center (E-SMLC) with hybrid location software for Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks that complies with FCC-mandated indoor location requirements. Subsequent phases include delivery of additional location technologies and hybrid algorithms as cellular networks and mobile devices continue to evolve and become more capable.

“We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with Polaris Wireless delivering wireless enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) location solutions for many years,” said Gene Strid, chief technology officer (CTO) of GCI. “As the carriers must now locate E9-1-1 callers in challenging indoor environments, we are happy to leverage Polaris Wireless’s technological innovation and commitment in delivering high-accuracy, software-based location solutions.”
