Language in which you want to receive the document.


In respect of 112-eCall (3.1) (operating requirements defined in EN 16072:2015), this Technical Specification defines the high level application protocols (3.10), procedures and processes required to provide the eCall service via an ISO 21217 compliant “ITS station unit”
NOTE 1 The objective of implementing the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call system (eCall) is to automate the notification of a traffic accident, wherever in Europe, with the same technical standards and the same quality of services objectives by using a 'Public Land Mobile Network' (PLMN) (such as ETSI prime medium) which supports the European harmonized 112/E112 emergency number and to provide a means of manually triggering the notification of an emergency incident.
NOTE 2 Requirements for third party services supporting eCall can be found in EN 16102 [6], and have been developed in conjunction with the development of EN 16072:2015 and EN 16072:2015, and are consistent in respect of the interface to the PSAP. This technical specification applies only to 112-eCall (3.1) service provision and makes no specifications in respect of third party eCall service provision, and the reader is referred to EN 16102 [6] for any third party eCall specifications.
