The event took place in the premises of ETSI (Sophia-Antipolis, France) on 6-10 March 2017. While the 2016 edition focused on voice and geo-localization solutions, the 2017 scope was extended to content-rich emergency calling, such as video calling, instant messaging and file transfers. Participants put their products to the test, gaining valuable insights from experiencing a variety of scenarios. Tested technologies included Advanced Mobile Location, PEMEA (the Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application) and more.
