eCall TestFest Event

The October 2017 deadline for PSAP infrastructure update in the EU set the scene for the 5th eCall TestFest Event

The fifth eCall TESTFEST event took place in Harwell, in Oxfordshire, UK, from 28 November to 2 December 2016. With EU Member States upgrading their Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) infrastructure by October 1, 2017, vendors and suppliers to both in-vehicle systems (IVS) and PSAPs carried out thousands of tests. Participants tested the compliancy, interoperability and essential performance of their eCall implementations, and discussed existing vendor solutions for the eCall chain.

Spectracom provided all GNSS test signals, including GPS and Galileo, for the event.
