ETSI, in cooperation with the European Emergency Number Association (EENA), is organizing the third emergency communications interoperability Plugtests™ event to be held in Europe with the support of ETSI SC EMTEL. This event will be located in the ETSI premises in Sophia-Antipolis from 28 January to 1 February 2019.

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 third 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.

This event is open for IP-based Emergency Services equipment vendors, Test tool vendors and PEMEA stakeholders. Furthermore any Government Body, Policy Maker or Local Authority is invited to attend as Observer.

The format of the event will be lab tests conducted in the premises of ETSI.
