San Jose, California, September 1, 2020 –
Polaris Networks, a leading provider of wireless LTE and 5G Test and Measurement tools, was one of the key participants
at the recently concluded ‘PSCR 2020:The Digital Experience’, showcasing the MCTP product in On-Demand & Tech-Demo sessions.
Polaris has been a regular attendee at the annual Stakeholder Meeting held by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and
Technology’s (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division. At this year’s virtual event, senior executives
from Polaris gave a sneak peek of the latest offering from their product portfolio – the Mission Critical Test Platform
(MCTP) - a certification test suite for ensuring Mission Critical Push to Talk / Video/ Data (MCX) devices conform to MCX
The demonstration covered unique features of the MCTP product, like the web based fully customizable user interface and test
control, which helps the user to drive test cases based on TTCN scripts being provided by TF-160, with an abstraction to the
complexity of the TTCN code. The MCTP also allows detailed test configuration & quick execution with minimal effort along with
many other features. Polaris also plans to connect the MCX clients/UEs over LTE network and add UE automation using mechanisms
like Rest APIs and AT/MMI commands, in their upcoming releases. The Polaris MCTP is expected to help accelerate Mission Critical
Service Deployment in National Public Safety Broadband Network by providing the required test equipment (which can also be used
by Industry Certification bodies like PTCRB) to test Public Safety features.
Polaris MCTP product is being developed under the MCVTE project, which is being executed in cooperative agreement with NIST.
The MCTP test suite could be soon used by the certification test houses around the world to formally certify the MCPTT
devices for deployment in public safety networks.
