San Jose, California, June 5, 2018–
San Jose, California, June 5, 2018 - Polaris Networks and Nemergent Solutions today announced
successful completion of interoperability tests between Polaris Networks’ NetEPC and Nemergent’s
Mission Critical Services (MCS) Application Server.
The end-to-end tests were facilitated by the adoption of 3GPP standards for mission-critical and public
safety communications, defined in Rel. 12, 13 and 14 specifications, by both companies in the EPC and
MCS-AS implementations. The companies tested a wide range of mission critical services including
MCPTT private calls, group calls and multiple private calls. Describing the collaborative effort as a
significant milestone for Polaris, Mr. Aditya Saraf, VP – Business Development said, "This initiative by
Polaris & Nemergent provides 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.
Working together, Polaris and Nemergent can help build wireless networks that not only delivers
mission-critical voice services but multi-media services as well."
Polaris Networks has been working with the PSCR lab in Boulder over four years to research and test
features and capabilities in the core network infrastructure of LTE to deliver critical communication
services. The NetEPC is a complete implementation of the core network elements of 4G-LTE. It is widely
used to build private LTE networks by industries such as mining, shipping, oil & gas and also by
government agencies responsible for internal and external security. Polaris customers will now be able
to augment their networks to provide mission critical communication services using solutions like those
from Nemergent Solutions.
Nemergent Solutions, with headquarters in Bilbao, Spain, has made rapid strides in developing and
delivering elements for Mission Critical Push-to-Talk based on 3GPP standards. They joined the ETSI
organized MCPTT Plugtest in 2017 and 2018 editions, showing standards compliancy from the early
stages. The company is looking to further its partnership with Polaris Networks and deliver integrated
mission critical communication solutions to customers.
Jose Oscar Fajardo, CEO at Nemergent Solutions, said,"Following Nemergent's philosophy of fostering
open interoperable ecosystems based on international standards, we are happy to collaborate with
Polaris in this new partnership. Evaluating our MCS applications over carrier-grade mission-critical
network cores such as NetEPC allows us bringing the technology to the end users".
