Location Acquisition

From NENA Knowledge Base

In the context of location information to support IP based emergency services: Location Acquisition refers to the way in which a network determined location is provided to the network entity responsible for inserting the location information into the context of an emergency call. Location information may be pushed to the network entity by the LIS, or pulled by the network entity from the LIS. The network entity may be the target, or it may be some other routing node such as a proxy or call-server.
