New Digital Horizons Connect, Create, Innovate – Manufacturers in the telecom space are under pressure to continually improve the performance of smart phones and increase interoperability with networks and services, mitigating the risk or network failure. At GCF we offer the most comprehensive test database in the mobile industry, supporting an eco-system with test equipment solutions and accredited testing laboratories.
Our members are from major operators, manufacturers and the test industry, and we’re all working together on certification schemes for the latest 3GPP & IoT technologies (LTE / LTE-A Pro, NB-IoT and CAT M), incorporating 5G requirements and establishing certification for remote SIM provisioning, oneM2M, automotive (C-V2X), and mission critical services (MC-PTT).
With such a powerful global team, we also recognise that whilst the benefit of connectivity and interoperability in lowering development and operating costs is a given, there is the prevailing challenge of geography and culture and so we don’t expect one solution to work for everyone. That’s why we will be at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 25-27 October 2018 specifically to discuss how we can benefit businesses in the telecoms and smart connectivity space by enabling certification of products and solutions in a wide range of industry verticals.
GCF’s General Manager, Lars Nielsen, has been invited to speak by IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity and Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI), India’s Telecom SDO at their 5G Technology and Standards Track Workshop co-located with the India Mobile Congress 2018 on Friday, 26 October.
The workshop is aimed at bringing together technology experts and stakeholders from the Government, Industry, Research and Development Organizations, Academia to discuss emerging trends in 5G technologies, the opportunities and challenges that these pose for a broad spectrum of verticals including tactical and first responder missions, and infrastructure and ecosystem preparedness. It is expected to be a catalyst to help define various use cases, drive standards, and investigate deployment issues suitable for 5G networks.
Don’t miss the chance to hear Mr Nielsen’s compelling presentation “Turning 5G and IoT standards into verified device performance”.
