    Cingular Wireless and its enhanced 911 system vendor True Position Inc. today say they completed pre-deployment tests of the system, and that the results fell within FCC guidelines.

    According to the test, about two thirds of the 2,300 test 911 calls made in the Wilmington, Del., area were able to locate the caller with an accuracy of <u>81 meters</u>. As many as 95 percent of calls were able to locate the caller within 190 meters or better. The FCC's E911 requirements call for 67 percent of calls locate callers within 100 meters or less and 95 percent within 300 meters or less.

    'We are very satisfied with the results of the Wilmington deployment, and we look forward to commencing the deployment of our network-based technology in Cingular's TDMA/AMPS cell sites,' said Kent Sander, president of TruePosition, Inc. 'Our company recognizes the critical importance of E911 as a public safety tool which is why we have been working diligently to develop and install a system capable of meeting and surpassing FCC requirements.'
