Title: FACILITATING A LOCATION DETERMINATION OF A USER EQUIPMENT THAT IS CONNECTED TO A MASTER RADIO BASED UPON SLAVE RADIO MEASUREMENTS
Abstract:
Embodiments relate to a deployment of a master radio in conjunction with one or more slave radios. The master radio coordinates with a UE, or transmitter, to transmit a particular known set of wireless signals in a defined time window over a dedicated wireless connection between the UE and the master radio. The master radio separately coordinates with the one or more slave radios to monitor for and measure the dedicated wireless connection during the defined time window (e.g., to obtain AoA measurements, signal strength measurements, etc.). The measurements can be reported to the master radio or a separate measurement processing unit to facilitate a location determination of the UE.
