Call for technical expertise to prepare and support the 5th MCX PlugtestsTM remote event

22nd Apr 2020

ETSI, with the support of the European Commission, EFTA, TCCA and UIC, is organizing the fifth MCX Plugtests event taking place remotely from 21 September to 02 October 2020. 

The goal of the MCX Plugtests event is to validate the interoperability of a variety of implementations using different test scenarios based on 3GPP Mission Critical Services. 

Interoperability and Mission Critical service harmonization are critical challenges for the successful deployment and operation of Mission Critical Communication. 

ETSI is looking for one or more technical experts to prepare and support the remote event. 

Typical tasks to be performed by the expert(s) are: 

  • development of a selection of interoperability tests; 
  • scheduling of test sessions for the event; 
  • technical support during the event, e.g. for questions relating to the test specification, test results, etc.; 
  • managing the test result reporting and evaluation. 

The skills required include an expert knowledge of the 3GPP Mission Critical Services and standards (3GPP TS 22.179, 3GPP TS 23.179, 3GPP TS 23.379, 3GPP TS 23.280, 3GPP TS 23.281, 3GPP TS 23.282, IETF RFC 3261) and ETSI TS 103 564. 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 06 May 2020. The subject of the email should be: [5th MCX PLUGTESTS] – Call for expertise.
