ETELM, Nemergent Partner on MCPTT Solution for TETRA, LTE
Tuesday, May 02, 2017 | Comments

ETELM and Nemergent, a working group that specializes in the development of interoperable emergency communications solutions, are collaborating on a mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) solution for critical communications over TETRA and Long Term Evolution (LTE).

The new solution combines ETELM’s 4G Linked infrastructure with Nemergent’s MCPTT application server, one of the earliest implementations compliant with the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 13 MCPTT standards, a statement said. The combined solution aims to overcome traditional issues associated with legacy systems and their evolution and association to LTE, with an interoperable and harmonized mission-critical communications solution.

ETELM’s 4GLinked is an integrated platform connecting multiple critical communications technologies over a single LTE evolved packet core (EPC). The addition of Nemergent’s MCPTT application server brings the application layer expected by all mission-critical users.

The partnership marks a major step forward for PMR accessibility to multiple technologies on a single unified platform, executives said.

“The arrival of LTE opens a brand-new world of possibilities for PMR users, and our customers are looking for a way to benefit from broadband services without having to discard their legacy infrastructure,” said Pierre Minot, president of ETELM. “By partnering with a recognized expert and a reliable and trusted MCPTT solution provider such as Nemergent, we are not only reinforcing our active support for new standardizations but giving our customers a fully compliant, innovative platform to connect all technologies, including narrowband and broadband, over a single LTE core that is fully compliant with 3GPP standards.”

The first deployments of the solution are planned for mid-2017. ETELM and Nemergent will both participate in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) MCPTT Plugtests 19 – 23 June in France, held in partnership with TCCA.
