GCF to offer certification of LTE devices for public safety, critical communications

Thursday 25 January 2018 | 14:17 CET | News
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) said it's extending its certification scheme to critical communications devices.  A new Work Item covering Mission Critical Push-to-Talk over LTE (MCPTT) was approved by GCF's Steering Group in December. The required test cases are expected to be completed by 3GPP RAN5 during Q1, paving the way for MCPTT device certification to start later in 2018.
