Redefining Wi-Fi Based Location with IEEE 802.11az™
RECORDED 09 NOVEMBER 2023
When using an IEEE 802.11™ (Wi-Fi®) enabled device, such as your mobile phone, it can use GPS outdoors because it has a clear line of sight to satellites. But indoors—with a roof overhead, surrounding walls, and other obstacles—GPS signals are blocked. While a mapping application can take you to a location with great precision outdoors, the technology for location accuracy indoors is not nearly as precise—but this will soon change as device manufacturers begin to innovate new use cases leveraging IEEE 802.11az™.
With most of the world’s mobile data being increasingly carried on Wi-Fi devices, market demand and new technologies are driving innovation of IEEE 802.11. The IEEE 802.11az standard, commonly referred to as next-generation positioning (NGP), is the evolutionary roadmap of accurate IEEE 802.11 location.
In this webinar, expert speakers will
