Mobile Location Protocol (MLP)

Definition - What does Mobile Location Protocol (MLP) mean?

Mobile Location Protocol (MLP) is a mobile device tracking application serving as an interface between the location server (LS) and location client services (LCS). MLP technology facilitates safe and efficient wireless location data querying through alternate methods beyond networking and positioning.

MLP is included in the LIF TS 101 specification.

Techopedia explains Mobile Location Protocol (MLP)

Location-based applications utilize MLP to query mobile device data from wireless location servers such as the Gateway Mobile Location Center (GMLC).

The Location Interoperability Forum (LIF), known as the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), developed MLP as an application programming interface (API). However, MLP is also applied to other wireless location terminal types.
