1. A user equipment (UE), comprising:
one or more processors configured to:
provide a positioning request to a node while the UE is in a radio resource control idle (RRC_IDLE) or inactive (RRC_INACTIVE) state, the positioning request implemented in a random access channel (RACH) message A (MsgA);
receive an uplink (UL) positioning reference signal (PRS) resource configuration from the node;
provide UL PRS data to the node based at least in part on the UL PRS resource configuration; and
receive a positioning response from the node, the positioning response implemented in a RACH message B (MsgB),
wherein the UL PRS data is provided to the node prior to receipt of the positioning response.
