TEC Certification for SMLC or eSMLC By Brand Liaison

TEC is mandatory for


Product : SMLC or eSMLC
Scheme : GCS
Group : C

The Serving Mobile Location Center (SMLC) and enhanced Serving Mobile Location Center (eSMLC) are essential components in mobile telecommunications networks, particularly in the context of location-based services and emergency services. The SMLC determines the location of mobile devices within a cellular network, playing a key role in applications that require accurate geographical information, such as location-based services or emergency call routing. The eSMLC represents an evolution of this capability, offering enhanced functionalities and improved accuracy in determining the location of mobile devices. Both the SMLC and eSMLC work in conjunction with location-based technologies, including Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers and cellular triangulation methods, to provide precise location information for mobile users. This capability is especially crucial in emergency situations, where accurate location data is vital for efficient and timely response by emergency services.

The Scheme GCS, Group C for SMLC or eSMLC, is crucial in mobile networks, particularly for providing location-based services. This scheme establishes standardized specifications for the design and interoperability of SMLC and eSMLC, critical components for determining the location of mobile devices. Compliance with Group C ensures that these components consistently meet performance standards, enabling reliable and secure location services. Adherence to this scheme supports the creation of a standardized and interoperable environment for SMLC and eSMLC, ensuring the efficient and accurate provision of location-based services in the dynamic landscape of mobile telecommunications. The GCS Scheme, Group C, is essential for advancing the overall performance and capabilities of these critical location-centric components in mobile networks.

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

For manufacturers intending to introduce SMLC or eSMLC solutions in India, securing TEC certification is an essential regulatory requirement. TEC certification ensures that these telecommunications solutions align with specific technical standards and regulations set by the Telecommunication Engineering Centre, a pivotal authority in India overseeing norms for telecommunication equipment. This certification process is crucial for validating the solutions' compliance with established criteria, covering aspects such as performance, network compatibility, and cybersecurity within the Indian telecommunication landscape. By obtaining TEC certification, manufacturers not only emphasize their commitment to regulatory compliance but also affirm the reliability and compatibility of their SMLC or eSMLC solutions. 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 effective and secure deployment of these telecommunications solutions across various applications in India.

The TEC Certification for EIR includes the following three variants:

  • eSMLC for LTE 
  • SMLC for GSM 
  • SMLC for WCDMA
