IEEE 802.16e defines means for true mobility within an 802.16 wireless network. Determining an accurate location for 802.16e devices requires information on radio parameters. A format is defined for location-related measurement data that can be provided by an 802.16e device. This measurement data can be used by a Location Information Server (LIS) to more accurately determine the location of the device. A separate measurement used for identifying WiMAX session-related parameters is also provided.
