Olivier Genoud
In 2002, I graduated from Telecom Bretagne (the birthplace of turbo codes) in France with a Master's degree in Telecommunications, Network & Information Systems.

In the same year, I joined NOKIA in the UK as a Protocol Software Engineer , as part of the R&D division developing the WCDMA Radio Access protocol stack for the NOKIA 3G mobile phones. This is where I started getting involved in standardization activities, being one of the NOKIA delegates in 3GPP TSG RAN Working Group 5 (RAN5), contributing to the specification of Releases 99, 4, 5 (HSDPA) & 6 (HSUPA).


In 2006, I moved to Japan and joined Anritsu Corporation, as a Senior Technical Consultant within the R&D division developing wireless test equipment for the mobile phone industry. As part of my product architecture & design activities I continued my involvement into the standardization arena as Anritsu delegate of the 3GPP TSG RAN Working Group 2 (RAN2). I followed closely the evolution of HSPA standardization (Releases 7 & 8) and then focused on the standardization of LTE & IMS technologies (Releases 8, 9, 10 & 11).

In 2013, I moved back to France and joined ETSI where I currently hold the position of Task Force (TF) 160 Project Manager. TF160 is a team of around 20 protocol testing experts from various 3GPP partners, mainly from Europe and Asia, that are developing test specifications (in TTCN-3 language) for the 3GPP TSG RAN Working Group 5 (RAN5) and TSG GERAN Working Group 3 (GERAN3).
