For the fifth NG112 Emergency Communications remote Plugtests™ event to be held from 23 January to 3 February 2023 with the support of ETSI TC EMTEL, click here.

ETSI, with the support of the ETSI TC MSG (Mobile Standards Group) and EENA (The European Emergency Number Association), is organizing the 2nd Next Generation eCall Plugtests event, which will take place from 14th to 18th of November 2022 in Kranj, Slovenia. This event will be hosted by Sintesio with Telekom Slovenia and Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of Republic of Slovenia as Technical Partners.

This event will have a specific focus on the interoperability of Next Generation eCall (NG eCall) systems or eCall over Long Term Evolution (LTE), based on the interoperability test descriptions defined in the upcoming version 2.1.1 of  ETSI TS 103 683, available soon. The event will be hosted in a real telco operator 4G/IMS network, fully supporting the NG eCall scenarios -including Fallback to CS eCall scenario. Optionally, infrastructure for the TPS rerouting scenario(s) may be available.

In a nutshell

Next Generation emergency communications are changing the way we handle emergencies, making it possible for emergency services to receive more and different types of data. But for NG technology to be effective, it needs to be standardised and interoperable.

The NG112 Plugtests provide the unique opportunity for all stakeholders to trial the components along the full chain of NG112 emergency response. Through different scenarios and tests cases, the interoperability and conformity of market solutions were examined and validated. Components were trialled independently and jointly, involving all the different areas of NG communications.Testing included the interoperability between Next Generation eCall and NG112.
