Industry Partners

To ensure GCF certification meets the needs of the industry, we work closely with partner organisations across the mobile and IoT eco-system.

3GPP

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. 

ETSI

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.

GSMA

GSM Association

GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators. Field trial test cases developed by GSMA form an important part of GCF certification.  Functionality specified by GSMA such as RCS (Rich Communication Suite) and RSP(Remote SIM Provisioning) are also covered by GCF certification. 

450 MHz Alliance

450 MHz Alliance

450 MHz Alliance works with members to grow momentum across the 450 MHz ecosystem, providing a simple entry for operators and manufacturers and unleashing the potential of the spectrum for cellular IoT applications on LTE networks.

5GAA

5G Automotive Association

5GAA was created to connect the telecom industry and vehicle manufacturers to develop end-to-end solutions for future mobility and transportation services

COAI

Cellular Operators Association of India

COAI was constituted in 1995 as a registered, non-governmental society. The Association is dedicated to the advancement of modern communication through the establishment of world-class mobile infrastructure, products and services and to delivering the benefits of innovative and affordable mobile communication services to the people of India

CTIA

Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association

CTIA represents the U.S. wireless communications industry and companies throughout the mobile ecosystem.

NGMN

The next generation mobile network

NGMN's vision is to expand the communications experience by providing a truly integrated and cohesively managed delivery platform that brings affordable mobile broadband services to the end user with a particular focus on 5G while accelerating the development of LTE-Advanced and its ecosystem.

oneM2M

Standards for M2M and the Internet of Things

oneM2Ms goal is to develop technical specifications which address the need for a common M2M Service Layer that can be readily embedded within various hardware and software, and relied upon to connect the myriad of devices in the field with M2M application servers worldwide.

TCCA

The Critical Communications Association

TCCA is a membership organisation which represents all standard mobile critical communications technologies and complementary applications.

TSDSI

Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India

TSDSI is an SDO that aims at developing and promoting India-specific requirements, standardizing solutions for meeting these requirements and contributing these to international standards, contributing to global standardization in the field of telecommunications, maintaining the technical standards and other deliverables of the organization, safe-guarding the related IPR, helping create manufacturing expertise in the country, providing leadership to the developing countries (such as in South Asia, South East Asia, Africa, Middle East, etc.) in terms of their telecommunications-related standardization needs.
