Fourth MCX Plugtests Event Set for September in Finland
Friday, August 09, 2019 | Comments

The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), in partnership with Erillisverkot, the Finnish TETRA operator, and the support of TCCA and the European Commission, will organize the fourth MCX Plugtests event 23 – 27 September at the Savonia University of Applied Sciences, Kuopio, Finland.

The concepts of mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT), mission-critical data (MCData) and mission-critical video (MCVideo) were specified in Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Releases 13, 14 and 15.

The goal of the MCX Plugtests event is to validate the interoperability of a variety of implementations using different scenarios based on 3GPP mission-critical services in Release 14. The tests will be based on 3GPP, European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards, and are designed for vendors of all types of MCX equipment.

The purpose and scope of the MCX Plugtests event are to trial independently and jointly all components of the mission-critical communications chain from authentication and service authorization to encryption. MCPTT enhancements, along with MCVideo group call and transmission control and MCData services will be tested. The test cases will be mainly based on the ETSI TS 103 564.

This fourth Plugtests event will focus on tests with radio equipment with unicast and multicast support but will also allow over-the-top (OTT) testing of mission-critical servers and clients.

Observers will be able to evaluate the test statistics in the test reporting tool (TRT) provided they have signed the nondisclosure agreement (NDA) of the MCX Program.
