Next Generation eCall

Integration with an Emergency Services IP Network


Mobile networks operators (MNOs) are currently in the process of phasing out 2G/3G networks and transitioning to 4G/5G networks based on IMS. Consequently, there is a corresponding need to transition, in a harmonised and coordinated way, to eCall based on IMS. Next Generation (NG) eCall is based on IMS.

This document describes how NG eCall can be seamlessly integrated into a NG112 architecture. In particular, the document illustrates how NG eCall can work with an ESInet. It also proposes a new approach for Third Party Service (TPS) NG eCall where a third party service provider answers the initial eCall and then conveys that call to the appropriate PSAP.
