A lack of certification programs for critical broadband has allowed the misuse of the MCPTT/MCData/MCVideo terms with vendors making ambiguous claims such as ‘3GPP aligned’, ‘MCPTT ready/capable/forward-compatible’ and so on, thus jeopardising customer confidence.
The innovative Mission Critical Services Testing-as-a-Service approach (MCS-TaaSting) aims to fulfil the specific needs of the mission critical community in terms of flexible conformance testing.
It will allow the industry to prove the 3GPP standards-compliance of their implementations and will give users and operators the confidence to buy compliant products.
This webinar is for vendors, users, operators, test houses – for anyone in the critical communications ecosystem looking for future proof and interoperable implementations of mission critical services.
The MCS-TaaSting project is led by the Networking, Quality and Security (NQaS) research group from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), supported by leading organisations in critical communications; industry associations and testing experts including ENENSYS Technologies, GridGears, Nemergent Solutions, PSTA, Sonim, TCCA and Texas A&M University.
The MCS-TaaSting project work is funded by the financial assistance award 70NANB20H005 from the United States Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology.
