Sprint will offer 3G services to cell customers: Their latest customers is TCS, an E911 location provider that works with cellular carriers to provide the information for dispatch police, fire, and emergency personnel. In traditional E911, a fixed phone number is matched against records and provided to the response center. For cell users, their location has to be plotted against cell towers.
This partnership would allow VoIP companies that offer soft phones to meet the FCC mandate for E911 by integrating Skyhook’s technology into their packages and tying that, in turn, into TCS’s ability to deliver the coordinates to response centers.
