Having a trusted MCX testing solution to verify compliance with standards is becoming crucial for device manufacturers. Adoption of broadband mission-critical communications solutions is increasing in the telecommunication market. Many mission-critical (MCX) solutions are already in use, and many others are in pre-deployment stages across global markets such as the US, Europe and Southeast Asia.

New MCVideo test cases as per 3GPP TS 36.579-6, MCVideo on-demand private call in automatic commencement mode without transmission control (test 6.2.3) and elevating on-demand MCVideo private call-in automatic commencement mode with transmission control to the emergency state with subsequent canceling by the user (test 6.2.1).   

New MCData test cases as per 3GPP TS 36.579-7, MCData one-to-one Standalone SDS Using Signalling Control Plane (test 6.1.1), MCData one-to-one SDS Session (test 6.1.9), MCData Group SDS Session (test 6.1.11), MCData group standalone file distribution (FD) using Media Plane (test 6.2.11).

Softil’s client framework for MCX

The Softil 3GPP MCX Release 16 compliant BEEHD SDK technology is the market’s predominant cross-platform SDK client framework for handheld mobile devices, dual-mode handsets, LMR/MCX gateways, control rooms, MCX testing solutions, FRMCS train terminals/cab radios, in-vehicle devices, and recording systems enabling them to quickly bring new broadband mission-critical voice and video communications over LTE and 5G solutions to market with minimum development costs.

“Valid8.com is a leading developer of mission-critical testing solutions for the MCX communities,” said Pierre Hagendorf, Softil’s CEO. “BEEHD’s unique capabilities as an already commercially deployed client framework with a proven track record of interoperability both in commercial MCX service deployments and at the industry’s interoperability testing events make it the perfect fit for the Valid8.com’s market-leading MCX testing solution.”

“We are excited to work with Softil as part of the verification of our MCData and MCVideo test scenarios,” added Ian Carpenter, President and CEO of Valid8.com. “We have proven the ability of our technology to deliver a comprehensive MCX test suite to device manufacturers in public safety and other industries.”

Agile solutions for public safety

Softil’s Mission Critical MCPTX/FRMCS client solution for LTE and 5G is designed for chipset vendors, device manufacturers, system integrators, application developers and service providers looking to accelerate development of IP-based Mission Critical voice and video over LTE and 5G (MCPTT, MCVideo, MCData) solutions for first responders, utilities, mining and transportation. 

With Softil, Mobile Operators, Mobile Device Manufacturers and Application Developers can now offer enhanced communication tools for first responders helping them with the battle for saving and rescuing lives.
