9-1-1 Call Location Altitude Tests Scheduled to Begin in January
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 | Comments

The 9-1-1 Location Technologies Test Bed invited vendors of new or emerging location technologies to participate in the 9-1-1 location technologies indoor test bed stage Z testing.

Stage Z is intended to evaluate and characterize the performance of wide-area location systems that determine the altitude of a 9-1-1 caller, along with the caller’s horizontal location. The results of this campaign of testing are to inform z-axis metrics that national wireless carriers will propose to the FCC by August 2018.

Stage Z results may be disclosed to a wide variety of stakeholders, including wireless carriers, public-safety community representatives, manufacturers, vendors and the FCC.

The Stage Z field testing is estimated to commence in early January 2018, once all applications have been reviewed by the test bed. This timing is tentative and dependent on the number of vendors and complexity of technologies to be tested.

Application questions are due Oct. 6, and applications are due Oct. 23. More information is here.
