There is some skepticism regarding the practical implementation of a tracking system that depends on cell identification (Cell-ID) information. This pessimism is due to the fact that tracking systems are known to require high positioning accuracy, while Cell-ID positioning is known as being "low accuracy" positing technique. However, using the Cell-IDs in a different way (a novel approach) than in current positioning will allow the implementation of a tracking system capable of providing sufficient positioning accuracy for many location-dependent applications.
