Polaris Networks, Nemergent test interoperability

Polaris Networks and Nemergent Solutions have successfully completed interoperability testing for the former’s NetEPC and the latter’s Mission Critical Services (MCS) application server.

The end-to-end tests were based on 3GPP standards for mission-critical and public safety communications, as defined in Releases 12, 13 and 14.

The companies tested a wide range of mission-critical services including MCPTT private calls, group calls and multiple private calls.

“This initiative by Polaris and Nemergent provides a fillip to the efforts of the industry and groups like ETSI and 3GPP for replacing legacy technologies with standards-based LTE technology for mission-critical communications,” said Aditya Saraf, Vice President of Business Development for Polaris Networks.

“Working together, Polaris and Nemergent can help build wireless networks that not only deliver mission-critical voice services but multimedia services as well.”

Polaris Networks has worked with the PSCR lab in Boulder for more than four years to research and test features and capabilities in the core network infrastructure of LTE to deliver critical communication services.

The company’s NetEPC is a complete implementation of the core network elements of 4G-LTE, and is used to build private LTE networks for industries such as mining, shipping and oil and gas, and also by government agencies responsible for internal and external security.

Spain’s Nemergent Solutions has developed and delivered elements for MCPTT based on 3GPP standards. The company took part in the MCPTT Plugtests in 2017 and 2018.

“Following Nemergent’s philosophy of fostering open interoperable ecosystems based on international standards, we are happy to collaborate with Polaris in this new partnership,” said Jose Oscar Fajardo, CEO of Nemergent Solutions.
