NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtest


ETSI in cooperation with the European Emergency Number Association (EENA)  organised the 1st ever emergency communications interoperability Plugtests™ event to be held in Europe with the support of ETSI SC EMTEL. This event took place in Sophia-Antipolis from 14 to 18 March 2016.




The final report after the event is now published!

About the event

The concept of "Next Generation 112" (NG112) has been identified as a potential answer to the increasing requirements and demands of content-rich emergency calling. The interoperability of such NG112 products and services has not been tested in Europe previously leading to this ideal opportunity.

This NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtests™ event saw a testing campaign based on the use cases developed by ETSI and EENA and was a unique chance for vendors of emergency communication equipment to test their product against different implementations and scenarios.

Please note that the event was covered by a Non-Disclosure Agreement which sets out the terms of a fair and non-discriminatory participation, i.e. vendors are free to publish their attendance to the event, and interoperability results shall be treated as confidential information.

The purpose and scope of the NG112 Communication Plugtests was to trial independently and jointly all components of the 112 communication chain based on NG112 networks such as:

  • location & location based call routing
  • audio, video, real-time text
  • policy based routing
  • LTD functional elements
  • recording and logging.

This activity is supported by the European Commission.
