InLocation Alliance Delivers System Architecture White Paper

InLocation Alliance (ILA), an industry collaboration dedicated to promoting indoor positioning solutions that directly benefit the industry and users of indoor location services and solutions on mobile devices, recently announced publication of the group's System Architecture White Paper.  The white paper defines a technology-independent architecture for indoor positioning that ensures support for use cases identified as critical for commercial success and lays the foundation for interoperability among vendor contributions.

“The white paper from the System Architecture group of the ILA specifies the main components and interface requirements of a technology-independent system architecture for indoor location. A common industry view on the system architecture creates a foundation for interoperability between vendors that will help accelerate the market for indoor positioning services,” said Jouni Kämäräinen, chair of ILA.

More information on the white paper can be found on the new InLocation Alliance website.
