Next Generation eCall Conformance Testing

Emergency Call (eCall) is a service provided in Europe with the goal of reducing response times for accidents or other emergencies on the roadways. It is required by law in new cars as of March 2018. eCall uses GSM and UMTS networks, but operators in Europe have already announced they will phase out support of the GSM and UMTS networks over the next decade. Next Generation eCall (NG eCall) extends the existing eCall for future proof IP-based calls. It uses Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks in addition to circuit-switched networks GSM and UMTS. This application note describes the principles behind NG eCall and explains conformance testing of the IVS using the test solution offered by Rohde & Schwarz.
