Registrations are now open for the fourth edition of the Next Generation 112 Plugtests! This entirely virtual event, in collaboration with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), will be held from 22 February to 5 March 2021.

EENA’s NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtest event provides the opportunity for all stakeholders along the emergency response chain to come together and test products and services in an open, supportive, and collaborative environment. Testing will include the interoperability between Next Generation eCall and NG112.

This edition will break new ground, as it will be held in conjunction with the ICE 9 event organised by NENA: the 9-1-1 Association. The collaborative event will focus on the testing of emergency communications session (ECS) routing across international borders.

EENA, ETSI and NENA invite all interested vendors that have a stake in improving global access to emergency services to participate in this first intercontinental interoperability testing event.  Next Generation Core Services vendors, Forest Guide developers, mobile app providers, telecommunication operators, and PSAP technology vendors should consider participating.

An observers’ programme will also be organised to give emergency services and public authorities the opportunity to discuss with participants about the implementation of NG112 / NG 9-1-1 in their countries.

How to register:

To participate in this first intercontinental interoperability testing event, you must register separately with ETSI and NENA as a participant of both events.  You can register for the NG112 Plugtests here. For the ICE 9 event, please email Delaine Arnold at NENA. If you only wish to attend one event, you only need to register to that specific event.

Need more information?

An open conference call will be held on 22 October 2020 at 16.00 CEST for anyone who is considering participating or has already registered for the events. The call will answer any questions about logistics, content of the testing, which functional elements you may want to contribute, etc.
