TEC Certification for SGSN or GGSN

TEC Certification for SGSN or GGSN By Brand Liaison

TEC is mandatory for


Product : SGSN or GGSN
Scheme : GCS
Group : C

The Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN) and Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) are integral elements within the GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and later Evolved Packet Core (EPC) architectures, forming the backbone of mobile data networks.

SGSN: It is responsible for managing the mobility and session control for users within a specific geographical area, tracking their location and facilitating the seamless handover of data sessions between different base stations.

GGSN: It acts as the interface between the GPRS network and external packet data networks, such as the Internet. It performs tasks like IP address allocation and packet routing, allowing mobile devices to establish connections with external data networks.

Together, the SGSN and GGSN enable the efficient and secure transfer of packet-switched data, supporting services like internet browsing, email, and multimedia messaging for mobile users. With the evolution of mobile networks toward 4G LTE and 5G, some of these functionalities are integrated into evolved nodes like the Mobility Management Entity (MME) and the Serving Gateway (SGW) in the Evolved Packet Core architecture.

The Scheme GCS, Group C for SGSN or GGSN, is crucial in mobile communication networks, particularly in General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) architectures. This scheme establishes standardized specifications for the design, functionality, and interoperability of SGSN and GGSN, which are integral components in mobile packet-switched networks. Compliance with Group C ensures that these nodes consistently meet performance benchmarks, covering factors such as packet routing, signalling protocols, and compatibility with various generations of mobile networks. Adherence to this scheme contributes to the creation of a standardized and interoperable ecosystem for SGSN and GGSN, fostering efficient communication between mobile devices and network infrastructure. The GCS Scheme, Group C, improves the reliability, scalability, and performance of these nodes in the dynamic and evolving landscape of mobile communications.

Note: Manufacturers of SGSN or GGSN are required to obtain the mandatory TEC Certification to sell their products in the Indian market.

For manufacturers intending to introduce SGSN or GGSN equipment in the Indian market, strict adherence to TEC certification is a fundamental regulatory requirement. TEC certification is mandatory to ensure that SGSN or GGSN equipment complies with specific technical standards and regulations set by the Telecommunication Engineering Centre, a pivotal authority in India responsible for formulating and enforcing technical norms for telecommunication equipment. This certification process is critical for validating the equipment's adherence to established criteria, covering aspects such as performance, network compatibility, and cybersecurity within the Indian telecommunication landscape. By obtaining TEC certification, manufacturers not only underscore their commitment to regulatory compliance but also demonstrate the reliability and compatibility of their SGSN or GGSN equipment, ensuring seamless integration with the Indian communication network infrastructure. The mandatory certification establishes a benchmark for the quality and functionality of such equipment.

The TEC Certification for Optical Fibre Cable includes the following three variants:

  • SGSN For GSM
  • SGSN For LTE


About TEC Certification

TEC (Telecommunication Engineering Centre) Certification is a crucial accreditation granted by the Telecommunication Engineering Centre, which operates under the Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. TEC Certification ensures that telecommunications equipment complies with the specified technical standards and legal requirements, verifying their quality, safety, and interoperability. This certification is essential for manufacturers and importers seeking to market their telecommunications products in India. Established in 1987, TEC plays a vital role in formulating and enforcing standards to enhance the efficiency and reliability of telecommunication networks and services in the country. TEC Certification is a mark of adherence to these standards, facilitating market access and assuring consumers of the reliability and compliance of the certified products with Indian telecommunications norms.
