MCOP Integrates with Sonim Device
Tuesday, March 05, 2019 | Comments

The Mission Critical Open Platform (MCOP) project announced a successful integration with Sonim’s XP8 ultra-rugged smartphone. The band 14/First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet)-enabled XP8 now supports MCOP application programming interfaces (APIs).

Sonim joins MCOP project partner Bittium in enabling easy integration of multivendor MCPTT apps into mission-critical devices by supporting MCOP APIs. Sonim is a member of the MCOP Supporter Program, in which organizations commit to the principle of using standards and open interfaces.

“Ensuring open standards and compliant platforms is critical for a successful MCPTT ecosystem,” said Sonim Technologies Vice President Bob Escalle. “Sonim fully supports the work of the Mission Critical Open Platform project.”

The MCOP project is working to streamline the process of developing, testing and bringing to market standards-compliant mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT) applications. MCOP ensures smooth deployment of mission-critical applications over different MCPTT software-development kits (SDKs), devices and chipsets. All MCOP components are fully compliant with Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards. In addition, developers and researchers can test, evaluate and validate their MCPTT applications through MCOP testing facilities.

“As well as the considerable technical achievements of MCOP to date, the project has raised awareness of the need for professional MCPTT applications and the importance of open APIs and multivendor support,” said Fidel Liberal, MCOP project leader. “The key development support from our partner Bittium has catalyzed interest from other device manufacturers, and we are delighted to welcome Sonim to the MCOP ecosystem.”
