ETSI tests LTE kit for mission-critical comms used by police

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-06-13
The first interoperability test sessions for mission-critical LTE equipment will take place later this month at the ETSI headquarters in Sophia Antipolis, France.

These are standard’s body ETSI’s first plugtests for Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) with equipment from different vendors.

Push-to-Talk (PTT) is a standard feature of narrowband Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) technologies developed specifically for mission-critical communications. PTT enables near instantaneous group communications – a critical requirement in an emergency situation.

To ensure that such capability is built in to LTE services, 3GPP has been catalysed by the work of the TCCA to ensure that LTE supports mission-critical communications, with MCPTT now specified in 3GPP Release 13.

The tests will be based on 3GPP, ETSI and IETF standards, and are designed to trial independently and jointly all components of the MCPTT communication chain such as Group Call, Floor Control, Unicast and Multicast communication.

Pre-testing sessions with 20 vendors will create more than 100 combinations between the different participating companies will have been tested by the end of the event. The test specification includes 45 test cases and will be available after the event.

The tests involve the TCCA, the representative body for the global critical communications community, and are supported by the European Commission.

Planned nationwide rollouts in the United States, South Korea, the UK, the Middle East and Asian countries are expected to trigger significant large-scale investments in mission-critical LTE.
