ERTICO in partnership with ETSI and with the support of ETSI TC MSG and ITS Europe had organized the sixth eCall TESTFEST event, which took place from 9 to 13 October 2017, in Kranj, Slovenia. This event was hosted by SINTESIO in cooperation with Iskratel, Public Administration and Telekom Slovenije.
Interoperability and eCall service harmonization are critical challenges to be taken into account for the successful deployment and operation of the eCall service.
The 6th eCall TESTFEST event enabled vendors to run interoperability test sessions using test descriptions provided in approved guidelines.
New In Vehicle System (IVS) and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) vendors were invited to join the event.
The event brought more value with the debriefing sessions where experts could answer technical questions or solve interoperability issues.
Additionally, compliance and performance checking sessions were scheduled to complement the interoperability tests.
This activity was supported by the European Commission.
