The objective of this study is to evaluate the use of measurements for positioning, which are currently
specified for UE and eNodeB for other purposes but are not currently included in LPP and LPPa, for an RF
pattern matching positioning technology in LTE.
The RFPM performance with these measurements will be compared to the RFPM performance based on the
measurements currently specified for the E-CID location method.
The implementation could be an E-SMLC based eNodeB-assisted location service using existing E-UTRAN
measurements which are provided to the E-SMLC via the LPPa positioning protocol and UE-assisted location
service using existing UE measurements (RSRP, RSRQ and UE Rx-Tx time difference only) which are provided
to the E-SMLC via LPP positioning protocol.
The present document is intended to complement already 3GPP standardized location methods and existing
3GPP location work items.
