While eCall functionality has been mandatory for all new vehicles in Europe since 2018, this functionality has been available in Russia since 2015. Other countries have followed suit later or have prescribed their own emergency call infrastructures and technologies.

CETECOM has been at the forefront of this development since the beginning of the discussions on the subject of emergency calls in vehicles and has contributed with its technical know-how to the fact that the functionalities are becoming safer and better and thus rescue measures can be initiated more quickly.
