Mission Critical features at TCCA event

February 9, 2017

ETSI and 3GPP stand on the leftAt the Critical Communications Europe (CCE) conference, held in Copenhagen this week, the need for future mission critical networks to offer coverage, throughput, capacity, resiliency and security - for vast amounts of data as well as voice communications - has been in focus.

A whole industry has been built out of the highly successful TETRA standard, delivering voice and early data services to professional users. Now with the need for advanced data networks there is a high degree of interest in how mission critical needs can be met by 3GPP systems.

Speaking at CCE today, Erik Guttman, the SA Chairman gave a summary of our standardization work. His message was that the industry should be motivated to [at least] follow the work of 3GPP and [at best] bring their expertise in to the working groups. He emphasised that the system evolves over time and over a series of Releases, not just one and that continual improvements are achievable.

5G Network Infrastructure Summit

April 6, 2017 - Sophia Antipolis

ETSI is organising its third summit on 5G, but this time the presentations will focus on the network's infrastructure and the technical solutions for the performance, reliability, energy efficiency and security that will be in the standards for the 5G system.

Georg Mayer, the TSG CT Chairman, is representing our technical leadership on the programme committee and he will also speak at the Summit, about the early prioritisation process for work on the next generation core network from 3GPP.

The detailed programne, for this free-of-charge event, will be available by mid-February 2017, but Registration for the ETSI Summit on 5G Network Infrastructure is now open.

Run for Fun at SA2

NOTE: Start time will now be 19:00 - or as soon as possible after the SA2 meeting session is closed.

5G Reimagined - Webinar and White Paper

New Business Models and Enhanced User Experience

Wednesday, December 2, 2015 (13:00 Eastern Time)

ATIS are to host a 5G webinar that will challenge the traditional consensus seeking model for gathering requirements. ‘5G Reimagined’ will focus on use cases for maximizing the Quality of Experience (QOE) and look at innovative new business models, including the potential for sponsored data subscriptions, that may have a major impact on wireless network operation.

Standardization and Open Source

Sophia Antipolis, November 19, 2015

A free Summit, hosted by ETSI, will consider whether standards and standards bodies are relevant to Open Source products and projects.

Major players from the Standardization and the Open Source industries, such as ETSI, OASIS, W3C, ECMA, ONF, OFE Open Forum Europe, OGF Open Grid Foundation and ECLIPSE will consider whether the advantages of Open Source - such as innovation, fast development and the involvement of a committed and innovative global community - can be brought in to the standards stream, which creates long-term stability and consensus building processes that sustain large and complex systems.

3GPP Companies and the mobile industry in general, are invited to attend and join the dialogue on ways that the two communities can move forward. Open Source Projects and key standardization activities such as NFV and IoT will be presented.
