Presence Information Data Format Location Object (PIDF-LO)

Presence Information Data Format Location Object (PIDF-LO) is an HTTP, XML tag format that includes a location object. PIDF-LO takes those location objects and sends them natively with a 9-1-1 call across the internet, allowing for instant provisioning with hyper-targeted accuracy, as a caller moves about a campus or high-rise environment.

How Bandwidth is Involved with PIDF-LO

Bandwidth’s 9-1-1 Dynamic Location Routing is built on PIDF-LO technology, providing 9-1-1 call takers with extremely accurate location information even before the call is answered. This allows emergency call takers to send help to where you are located, versus what city/state your phone may be registered in.

What Are the Benefits of PIDF-LO

By using a 9-1-1 routing technology built on PIDF-LO, businesses are able to send up-to-the-minute accurate location information to the correct PSAP. This is an ideal emergency solution particularly for campus, high-rise, or highly mobile workers, as PIDF-LO will dynamically check for location information vs. the one-time static location of a traditional provisioning process.
