To ensure certification meets the needs of the industry, GCF works closely with organisations across the mobile eco-system.
GCF references test specifications published by the standards organisations that developed the functionality being certified.
3rd Generation Partnership Project
3GPP is the 3rd Generation Partnership Project defines specifications for cellular telecommunication network technologies. 3GPP standards cover radio access, the core transport network and service capabilities. Seven telecommunications standards development organisations - ARIB (Japan), ATIS (USA), CCSA (China), ETSI (Europe), TSDSI (India), TTA (Korea) and TTC (Japan) - are Organizational Partners of 3GPP.
GCF is a 3GPP Market Representation Partner offering market advice and contributing consensus views of market requirements to 3GPP.
European Telecommunications Standards Institute
ETSI is the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, produces globally-applicable standards for information and communications technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, broadcast and internet technologies.
