Softil, Nemergent Partner on MCPTT for LTE, 5G
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 | Comments

IP communications enabler Softil and mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) server firm Nemergent Solutions combined their technologies and expertise to launch an end-to-end solution for next-generation mission-critical communications over Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G.

“Legacy mission-critical technologies today have limited data capabilities resulting in public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) teams as well as critical national infrastructures lacking key services such as presence, video calling, video streaming, data sharing location services all integrated into a single device,” said Pierre Hagendorf, CEO Softil.

He said the Softil/Nemergent solution is a building block for next-generation mission-critical communications in the widest of applications ranging from firefighters and police emergency communications to high-speed trains to oilrig communications solutions.

Softil is providing its multiplatform MCPTT-compliant BEEHD client framework, enabling the development of standards-based mission-critical applications and devices over LTE, LTE-railway (LTE-R) and 5G. The BEEHD software development kit (SDK) is being used by Hoimyung to build next-generation 3GPP MCPTT standard-compliant MCPTT communications terminals for use in South Korea’s new high-speed railway link now in service at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Nemergent specializes in the development and experimentation of mission-critical technologies as specified by the 3GPP since its Release 13. Nemergent provides the server components required for the deployment of new MCPTT services including mission-critical video (MCVideo) and mission-critical data (MCData). The company’s MCPTT application server implements the standard interfaces for managing the prioritization and multicasting features offered by LTE and 5G networks.

Last year, Softil and Nemergent participated in the first European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) MCPTT PlugTests event, and the two firms will attend the second MCPTT PlugTests event in June.
