(Indoor) Location, Location, Location

A session at CTIA 2013™

Tuesday 21st May, 2013

12:15pm to 1:15pm (PST)

GPS has penetrated the mobile communication more than any other technology. Unfortunately we have to leave it at the door when we enter a building (which is where we spend 70% of our time). This panel will look at how precision location can be delivered indoors and the impact this will have on the different players in the wireless ecosystem.
