NEAD, which is being developed to identify the dispatchable locations of wireless 9-1-1 callers when the caller is indoors, is a database that will enable wireless providers to use media access control address and Bluetooth public device addresses information of fixed indoor access points to locate wireless devices being used to call 9-1-1.
