Summary

In order to fulfill the positioning accuracy requirement of emergency 911 (E-911) subscriber safety services, mobile telecommunication systems, for example, Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), or potentially, next-generation telecommunication systems, adopt location-based services (LBSs) as one of the key functions. This chapter aims at both providing a framework for enabling LBS using next-generation systems and investigating the positioning accuracy for an OFDMA system. It illustrates the feature of purely cellular-based positioning in the next-generation system, including the procedures for both the downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) timing measurements. Moreover, the chapter presents and compares case studies of DL and UL system-level simulations for the IEEE 802.16m standard by considering the effects from multipath, shadowing, and intercell interference.
