TEC is mandatory for

MSC or MSC-S or GMSC or GMSC-S including VLR

Product : MSC or MSC-S or GMSC or GMSC-S including VLR
Scheme : GCS
Group : C

The Mobile Switching Center (MSC), MSC-S (Mobile Switching Center-Server), Gateway Mobile Switching Center (GMSC), and GMSC-S (Gateway Mobile Switching Center-Server) are integral elements within the mobile telecommunications infrastructure, collectively managing call routing switching and mobility functions. The MSC serves as a central component in circuit-switched networks, handling call establishment, termination, and handovers between different cells in a mobile network. The MSC-S is an evolution of the MSC with added server capabilities, supporting the integration of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and enhancing network flexibility. The GMSC and GMSC-S serve as gateways between different networks, connecting mobile networks to external networks, such as the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or other mobile networks, facilitating inter-network communication. The Visitor Location Register (VLR) complements the MSC by temporarily storing subscriber information within its coverage area, aiding in call setup and management. Together, these components play a crucial role in ensuring seamless and efficient voice communication, supporting mobility, and enabling interconnectivity between different communication networks in the complex architecture of mobile telecommunications systems.

The Scheme GCS, Group C for MSC, MSC-S, GMSC, GMSC-S, and VLR is essential in mobile networks, ensuring efficient call management and subscriber mobility. This scheme outlines standardized specifications for the design and interoperability of these components. Compliance with Group C ensures these elements consistently meet performance standards, allowing for seamless and secure mobile communication. These components play a crucial role in managing calls, connecting users, and supporting subscriber mobility in mobile networks. Adherence to this scheme fosters the creation of a standardized and interoperable environment for these critical components, ensuring reliable and efficient mobile services. The GCS Scheme, Group C, is fundamental for advancing the overall performance and connectivity of these network elements in the dynamic landscape of mobile telecommunications.

Note: Manufacturers of MSC or MSC-S or GMSC or GMSC-S, including VLR, are required to obtain the mandatory TEC Certification to sell their products in the Indian market.

For manufacturers seeking to introduce MSC, MSC-S, GMSC and GMSC-S, including VLR equipment in India, securing TEC certification is a mandatory regulatory step. TEC certification ensures that this telecommunications equipment adheres to specific technical standards and regulations established by the Telecommunication Engineering Centre, a pivotal authority in India overseeing norms for telecommunication equipment. This certification process is essential for validating the equipment's compliance with established criteria, covering aspects like performance, network compatibility, and cybersecurity within the Indian telecommunication landscape. By obtaining TEC certification, manufacturers not only affirm their commitment to regulatory compliance but also showcase the reliability and compatibility of their MSC, MSC-S, GMSC, GMSC-S, and VLR equipment. This certification ensures seamless integration into the Indian communication network infrastructure, setting a benchmark for quality and functionality. The mandatory certification promotes consumer confidence and contributes to the efficient and secure deployment of these telecommunications solutions across diverse applications in India.

The TEC Certification for MSC or MSC-S or GMSC or GMSC-S, including VLR, includes the following two variants:

  • MSC or GMSC including VLR for GSM 
  • MSC or GMSC including VLR for WCDMA
