E911 needs all the help on locating a Cell Phone it can get. LTE E911 is more of a let down at the moment. It certainly has to improve like Brook is suggesting. A more follow through point, is that the Call Center Operator, would ask the young caller, "more area specific questions, " such as house colour, if a dog is in the yard. and if a corner store is close. Cell phone exact location reporting " hasn't yet " saved many lives, outside of common location sense. and, LTE for public safety,, still needs improvement. The General Public, is our best Safety reporting service, lets make good use of it. "rtg" Metro Vancouver Canada

In response to question about LTE deployments and E911: For the first phase of LTE deployments, most operators will fall back to 3G or 2G technology for E911 (although even this has some specific test requirements). However, with North American operators looking to allocate more spectrum to LTE to improve overall network capacity, we may soon see parts of the country serviced only by LTE. This makes LTE E911 a high priority, and it is therefore something we are likely to see deployed in the next 12 months. That is why LTE E911 test requirements are quickly becoming a "must test" for all LTE-enabled mobile phones sold in North America.

In all the talk about LTE deployments, I haven't heard much about E911. How big an issue do you think it is?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
