ENENSYS Unveils First Test Tool To Validate MCPTT, MCVideo and MCData Devices and Solutions
Rennes, France – June 10th, 2019 – ENENSYS Technologies, the acknowledged leader of media delivery solutions, today announced the achievement of a key milestone in empowering first responders to share videos and data over LTE. Expway eBox CC 2.1, immediately available, is the first and only test tool to help public safety critical communication applications validate MCPTT, MCVideo and MCData in compliance with the latest 3GPP Release 15 specifications.
When a threat or natural disasters occur, public safety agencies trust reliable, communication networks to save lives. Yet, first responders today use low throughput services over expensive and limiting legacy networks to communicate and share small files.
To overcome these limitations, public safety agencies are adopting commercial 4G LTE and 5G networks enhanced with LTE Broadcast (also known as Multicast) for their critical communication services. With LTE Broadcast, all agents can receive the same documents like images and videos at the same time. Communications can be prioritized and network congestions totally avoided, even when very large numbers of responders are on-line together.
Expway eBox CC 2.1, the new release of the wildly popular Expway eBox CC (Critical Communications), now supports MCVideo (Mission Critical Video) and MCData (Mission Critical Data) as per the latest 3GPP Release 15 specifications. Numerous rugged device makers, critical communications application developers, and mobile network operators have used Expway eBox CC in the past to verify and evaluate the reliability of their MCPTT (Mission Critical Push-To-Talk) communications systems.
“MCVideo allows first responders to stream a live video from a ruggedized device or a body cam to a dispatcher who can then broadcast the video to an unlimited number of responders using very little bandwidth and low latency” said Bartolo Scanavino, Telecom Market Product Director. “Critical communication applications built for 4G/LTE following the 3GPP specifications, will be easily migratable to 5G in the future.”
ENENSYS will be demonstrating critical communication services at the CCW 2019 Nemergent stand, # C96, in Kuala Lumpur, from June 18th to June 20th using Expway eBox CC 2.1, and the Expway Middleware on Bittium and Sonim devices. ENENSYS is also part of the MCOP consortium, and will be present at the MCOP stand, # D14, to answer questions about the MCOP APIs and SDK.
