Advanced Mobile Location (AML) is a caller location technology that brought countless contributions to emergency response, from locating faster and better citizens to reducing response times.
It was first standardised in ETSI TS 103 625 in December 2019 by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) technical committee on emergency communications (EMTEL).
The previous publication called “Transporting Handset Location to PSAPs for Emergency Calls- Advanced Mobile Location” it’s now named “Transporting Handset Location to PSAPs for Emergency Communications – Advanced Mobile Location” to be in line with the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC).
Besides covering the current implementations of AML, the document adds vertical location as an optional field. It also sheds light on international and national roaming challenges.
This life-saving technology is already deployed in 30 countries worldwide. To recap, since 17 March 2022, thanks to the application of the Delegated Regulation 2019/320, all smartphones sold in the European Union have to have AML. You can find more information about it here.
