NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtests #2
ETSI in cooperation with the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) is organizing the second emergency communications interoperability Plugtests™ event to be held in Europe with the support of ETSI SC EMTEL. This event will be located in Sophia-Antipolis from 06 to 10 March 2017.
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.
This second NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtests™ event will see a testing campaign based on the use cases developed by ETSI and EENA and is a unique chance for vendors of emergency communication equipment to test their product against different implementations and scenarios.
While the first NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtest focused on voice and geo-localization, in this second edition, the scope is extended to content-rich emergency calling with existing IMS/RCS services such as:
- video calling
- instant messaging (1:1 chat, group chat)
- file transfer (ex: video,etc…).
Please note that the event is 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 benefits for a vendor in participating include a chance to test early implementations in a neutral environment, to validate their understanding of next generation emergency calling requirements as well as a to communicate about and promote the technology.
An event not to be missed, if you want to be sure your products and implementations are fit for the next generation emergency calling requirements.
Registration is now open. It will close on 16 December 2016.
This activity is supported by the European Commission.
One open preparation conference call will be held on 27 September 2016 from 1400 to 1500 CEST (instead of CET), for which the attendance is free and does not necessitate to have registered to the event.
