ETSI, with the support of the ETSI TC MSG (Mobile Standards Group) and EENA (The European Emergency Number Association), is organizing the 2nd Next Generation eCall Plugtests event, which will take place from 14th to 18th of November 2022 in Kranj, Slovenia. This event will be hosted by Sintesio with Telekom Slovenia and Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of Republic of Slovenia as Technical Partners.

How to register?

Registration is now open at the ETSI website.


All participants are expected to register individually to this event. The first person from an organization to register for the event will be de facto the official contact for technical and administrative matters.

The registration deadline is 24th of October 2022.

The event is free of charge.

RoE and NDA

By registering for the 2nd NG eCall Plugtests event, participating organisations will be asked to sign the Rules of Engagement (RoE) and Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which they will receive upon registration for signature. These RoE and NDA will cover this remote Plugtests event.

Upon signature of the RoE and NDA sent to the official contact, the participants will receive their credentials for the 2nd NG eCall Plugtests WIKI and will be subscribed to the event’s mailing list.

Participants will not be allowed to participate in the event if the RoE and NDA of the event have not been signed by a representative of their company. The deadline to return the signed RoE and NDAs to ETSI is 31st of October 2022.



This event will have a specific focus on the interoperability of Next Generation eCall (NG eCall) systems or eCall over Long Term Evolution (LTE), based on the interoperability test descriptions defined in the upcoming version 2.1.1 of  ETSI TS 103 683, available soon. The event will be hosted in a real telco operator 4G/IMS network, fully supporting the NG eCall scenarios -including Fallback to CS eCall scenario. Optionally, infrastructure for the TPS rerouting scenario(s) may be available.

Interoperability and NG eCall service harmonization are critical challenges to be taken into account for the successful deployment and operation of the NG eCall service.

The NG eCall Plugtests event offers the opportunity for vendors to run interoperability test sessions using predefined test descriptions.

In Vehicle System (IVS) and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) vendors are invited to join the event.

If possible, compliance and performance checking sessions will be scheduled to complement the interoperability tests.

This activity is supported by the European Commission and the EFTA Secretariat.
