Appendix C. LIF Mobile Location Protocol

The Location Interoperability Forum (LIF) is an initiative established jointly by Ericsson, Motorola, and Nokia to define and promote a common and ubiquitous solution for determining the location of mobile devices across different wireless network boundaries. The members of LIF include a mix of network operators, equipment manufacturers, and service providers responsible for deploying equipment for this solution. LIF has developed a standards-based solution to locate mobile devices called the Mobile Location Protocol. Issues considered in developing the Mobile Location Protocol specification include the following:

  • How to ensure end user privacy and location information security

  • How to locate legacy phones (with no existing positioning capability)

  • How to offer location services to roaming users

  • How to support applications developed internally, by third-party developers and by service providers

  • Availability of location capable terminals

  • Interoperability of equipment and applications provided by multiple vendors

  • Provisioning, billing, and revenue-sharing models

For updates to this specification, see http://www.locationforum.org. Note that the contents of Appendix C are reproduced as they appear in the LIF Web site.
