John Foley  (Managing Director, Safer Buildings Coalition)

Pass Type: All Access, Quick Pass Tuesday

Track: In-building Wireless

Format: Panel Session

In part 3 of our “in-building digital divide discussion” (see Pt 1 panel In-Building Imperative Pt 1: Evolving and Converging Technologies, and Pt 2 panel In-Building Imperative Pt 1: Prioritizing School Communications) – we explore the importance of and current state of in-building location accuracy.

The FCC estimates that a one-minute improvement in location accuracy would result in saving 10,000 lives per year in the US alone.

This panel discussion, hosted by the Safer Buildings Coalition, seeks insights from experts on the following topics:

  • Location Accuracy Technology topics: Network-Based Location, Device-Based Hybrid, Z-Axis
  • How accurate is accurate enough?
  • Policy Update on Location Accuracy
  • Who is doing what?
  • Relation to and impact on NG911
  • Who pays?
