MPC/GMLC (Mobile Positioning Center / Gateway Mobile Location Center)

From NENA Knowledge Base

MPC/GMLC (Mobile Positioning Center / Gateway Mobile Location Center) is a Functional Entity that provides an interface between the wireless originating network and the Emergency Services Network. The MPC/GMLC retrieves, forwards, stores and controls position data within the location services network. It interfaces with the location server (e.g., Position Determining Entity (PDE)) for initial and updated position determination. The MPC/GMLC restricts access to provide position information only while an emergency call is active.
