2017 (English)In: IEEE Communications Magazine, ISSN 0163-6804, E-ISSN 1558-1896, Vol. 55, no 12, p. 179-185, article id 8030544Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Many use cases in the Internet of Things (IoT) will require or benefit from location information, making positioning a vital dimension of the IoT. The 3GPP has dedicated a significant effort during its Release 14 to enhance positioning support for its IoT technologies to further improve the 3GPPbased IoT eco-system. In this article, we identify the design challenges of positioning support in LTE-M and NB-IoT, and overview the 3GPP's work in enhancing the positioning support for LTE-M and NB-IoT. We focus on OTDOA, which is a downlink based positioning method. We provide an overview of the OTDOA architecture and protocols, summarize the designs of OTDOA positioning reference signals, and present simulation results to illustrate the positioning performance.
