TIA Issues New Project 25 Tier 2 Location Services Specification Standard

Arlington, VA (April 16, 2015) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, TIA-102.BAJC-A Project 25 Tier 2 Location Services Specification.

TIA-102.BAJC-A specifies requirements for the Tier 2 Location Service that provides a location request/response protocol that allows a Location Service Host to make a request for location information from an SU or MDP, providing parameters that control the transmission of location information. Immediate or periodic reports can be requested, and reports can be requested base on triggering events. The service can be used between SUs in the Direct Data or Repeated Data configurations, or between an SU and a DH in the Conventional FNE Data or Trunked FNE Data configurations. The location information is provided in an XML-based protocol and is compressed using using the W3C EXI recommendation.

TIA-102.BAJC-A was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-8 Mobile and Personal Private Radio Standards, TR-8.5 Signaling and Data Transmission subcommittee.

For more information about TR-8 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Marianna Kramarikova at standards@tiaonline.org.

TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
