Overview of Radiolocation in CDMA Cellular Systems

By James J. Caffery and Gordon L. Stüber


Applications for the location of subscribers of wireless services continue to expand. Consequently, location techniques for wireless technologies are being investigated. With code-division multiple access (CDMA) being deployed by a variety of cellular and PCS providers, developing an approach for location in CDMA networks is imperative. This article discusses the applications of location technology, the methods available for its implementation in CDMA networks, and the problems that are encountered when using CDMA networks for positioning. ireless location has received considerable attention over the past few years. A recent Report and Order issued by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in July 1996 requires that all wireless service providers, including cellular, broadband PCS, and wide-area SMR licensees, provide location information to Emergency 911 (E-911) public safety services [1].
