It is disabled once accelerating through 20 knots and enabled when decelerating through 15 knots so it is for low speed operation only.
On the 747-400, the speed limits are based on wheelspeed information from the Brake System Control Unit (with a backup of IRU groundspeed at 40kts).

The system will still work with the IRUs switched off.
