Call for technical expertise to prepare and conduct the NG eCall 2020 PlugtestsTM Event - 26 October to 6 November 2020

ETSI is organizing, with the support of the European Commission, EFTA Secretariat, ETSI TC MSG, sAFE 112 project and EENA, the NG eCall 2020 PlugtestsTM event taking place remotely from 26 October to 6 November 2020.
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 Remote NG eCall Plugtests 2020 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 ETSI TS 103 683.
In Vehicle System (IVS) and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) vendors are invited to join the event. The event will make use of the ETSI HIVE interoperability platform and services, enabling efficient communication and coordination between the participants, connected from remote locations. Regular debriefing sessions will be held where experts can answer technical questions or help resolve interoperability issues.
ETSI is looking for one or more technical experts to prepare and support the event online.
Typical tasks to be performed by the expert(s) are:

  • development of a selection of interoperability tests;
  • scheduling of test sessions for the event;
  • participation in conference calls;
  • technical support during the event, e.g. for questions relating to the test specification;
  • assisting with the production of the Plugtests report;
  • managing the test result reporting and evaluation.

 The skills required include an expert knowledge of the NG eCall High Level Application Protocol (HLAP). Ideally, the applicant(s) should be familiar with the ETSI interoperability testing methodology. Working experience in interoperability testing as well as technical aspects surrounding the organization of interoperability events would be an advantage.
Applications should be sent to no later than 30 July 2020. The subject of the email should be: [NG eCall Plugtests 2020] - Call for expertise.
