Valid8, Softil Announce Verification of MCVideo, MCData Test Scenarios
Wednesday, June 16, 2021 | Comments and Softil announced the successful verification of mission-critical video (MCVideo) and mission-critical data (MCData) test scenarios with Softil’s BEEHD MCX SDK client, using’s MCX Conformance tester product.

Having a trusted mission-critical services (MCX) testing solution to verify compliance with standards is becoming crucial for device manufacturers. Adoption of broadband mission-critical communications solutions is increasing in the telecommunication market. Many mission-critical (MCX) solutions are already in use, and many others are in pre-deployment stages across global markets such as the U.S., Europe and Southeast Asia.’s ability to support mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT), MCVideo and MCData testing of devices from various manufacturers helps ensure technology and device manufacturers can perform comprehensive testing of their technologies, giving mission-critical users peace of mind that they are receiving a fully tested, reliable and comprehensive solution. This allows first responders to focus on their life-saving work without concerns about the technology being used. will be demonstrating these solutions at the upcoming Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) 2021 virtual event. This annual public-safety broadband stakeholder meeting brings together representatives from public safety, federal agencies, industry and academia.

“ is a leading developer of mission-critical testing solutions for the MCX communities,” said Softil CEO Pierre Hagendorf. “BEEHD’s unique capabilities as an already commercially deployed client framework with a proven track record of interoperability both in commercial MCX service deployments and at the industry’s interoperability testing events make it the perfect fit for’s market-leading MCX testing solution.” will have a virtual booth with video demonstrations of MCPTT, MCVideo and MCData testing:
• New MCVideo test cases as per Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Technical Specification (TS) 36.579-6, MCVideo on-demand private call in automatic commencement mode without transmission control (test 6.2.3) and elevating on-demand MCVideo private call-in automatic commencement mode with transmission control to the emergency state with subsequent canceling by the user (test 6.2.1).
• New MCData test cases as per 3GPP TS 36.579-7, MCData one-to-one stand-alone SDS short data service (SDS) using signaling control plane (test 6.1.1), MCData one-to-one SDS session (test 6.1.9), MCData group SDS session (test 6.1.11), and MCData group stand-alone file distribution (FD) using media Plane (test 6.2.11).

“We are excited to work with Softil as part of the verification of our MCData and MCVideo test scenarios,” adds President and CEO Ian Carpenter. “We have proven the ability of our technology to deliver a comprehensive MCX test suite to device manufacturers in public safety and other industries.”
