February 22, 2019

3GPP Market Representation Partner - The Global Certification Forum (GCF) has today taken a further step on the way to 5G device certification, with the announcement that its full set of certification test suites for 5G chipsets, modules and modems will be complete by the end of the year.

The scheme will build on the certification programmes for existing 3GPP technologies, including UMTS, HSPA and LTE varients, focusing on the certification of Protocol, Radio Resource Management (RRM), Radio Frequency (RF) and Positioning peformance.

“This is just the start", says Lars Nielsen, General Manager GCF,  more will follow as the GCF certification programme plays a big part in ensuring products interoperate correctly on 5G networks.

5G for future industry

November 9, 2018

This week, the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) has been approved as a Market Representation Partner (MRP) in 3GPP.

The 5G-ACIA membership base includes a number of industrial equipment suppliers and end-users as well as ICT companies; with the automotive, energy, industrial manufacturing and production sectors all represented.

As 3GPP technology is now being applied to a diverse number of ‘verticals’, this is the best possible time for the 5G-ACIA to bring a coordinated industry based approach to the standards process, one that will help to align 3GPP to the 5G-ACIA vision to bring the “best possible applicability of 5G technology and 5G networks for the manufacturing and process industries”.
