The European Emergency Number Association (EENA) has released the first public version of the Next Generation 112 Long Term Definition standard (NG112 LTD).
Aculab is participating in the testing of this complete, end-to-end, next generation 112 service, according to Ian Colville, product manager at Aculab (News - Alert) and a contributor to the newly released standard.
Colville notes that the European authorities should support the testing of a complete, end-to-end, next generation 112 service and sees the NG112 LTD standard to be a crucial document for the future of emergency services in Europe and for the safety of its citizens.
“Aculab would gladly participate, based on its experience with GroomerII in previous interoperability events and in real world, next generation deployments,” said Colville. “I am delighted to have been able to work together with other NG112 Committee members and to have made a contribution to the standard, on behalf of Aculab.”
The European Emergency Number Association (EENA) is a Brussels-based NGO set up in 1999 dedicated to promoting high-quality emergency services reached by the number 112 throughout the EU.
“This is undoubtedly a key milestone reached. Europe was lacking such a reference document and hence we are proud to be able to release the NG112 LTD,” said Hannes Tschofenig, chair of the EENA NG112 Technical Committee.
The NG112 LTD standard is set to be presented next week in Riga (18-20 April) during the EENA EU Emergency Services Workshop 20122.
Aculab will be present as an exhibiting vendor at this workshop that will be attended by emergency services representatives from all over Europe.
Aculab was in news earlier this year for launching a cloud-based alternative to traditional telephony.
