ETSI, in cooperation with the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) and NENA: The 9-1-1 Association, is organizing the fourth NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtests™ event to be held remotely with the support of ETSI SC EMTEL. This event will take place from 22 February to 5 March 2021.

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 fourth NG112 Emergency Communications Plugtests event will consist of a joint international testing in conjunction with NENA’s Next Generation 9-1-1 Industry Collaboration Event (ICE 9).

The testing campaign will be based on the use cases developed by ETSI, EENA and NENA and is a unique chance for vendors of emergency communication equipment to test their product against different implementations and scenarios.

This event is open to NGCS vendors, Forest Guide developers, user agent, mobile app providers, and call handling vendors. Furthermore, any Government Body, Policy Maker or Local Authority is invited to attend as an Observer.

The format of the event will be lab tests routing across international borders.

Registrations closed on 21 December 2020.

An Observers Programme may be organized for speakers to share their experience with NG112/NG911. Speakers are welcome!

This activity is supported by the European Commission and EFTA.
