ETSI and NGMN to develop relationship, explore 5G standardisation
Following successful collaboration in the areas such as LTE and the Open Radio Equipment Interface, ETSI and NGMN have agreed to develop their joint cooperation beyond the existing Memorandum of Understanding framework.
Peter Meissner, CEO of NGMN, said: "The new agreement honours the good and long standing relationship between ETSI and NGMN and recognises the importance of both organisations in shaping future mobile broadband solutions."
The new agreement will provide for future cooperation between ETSI and NGMN and improve the dialogue and exchange of information between the two organisations. ETSI and NGMN plan to work closely together on the next generation of mobile networks, in particular to support standardisation with a view to upcoming 5G technologies.
Luis Jorge Romero, ETSI director general, added: "Cooperation between standards development organisations is required, in particular when dealing with subjects of common interest for the mobile industry like the development of 5G, in order to avoid conflicting standards and increased cost to the industry. We welcome the strong relationship with NGMN and the extension of our cooperation into new fields."
