As technology advances, there always remains an elusive parameter holding back innovation. For landlines, it was the caller’s identity; and then, the caller\\\’s address. Once those issues were solved, the callers went mobile and nomadic. The industry responded with X and Y coordinates, with ever-increasing pinpoint accuracy. And with that virtually solved, the new conundrum is Z. While that can relate to the Height Above Ellipsoid (HAE), or Height Above Average Terrain, it’s a number that represents some level of altitude that must be correlated back to a specific floor. This well-versed panel of industry experts will discuss the ins and outs, as well as the ups and downs of the elusive Z element for location services.
