WASHINGTON -- The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is pleased to announce that it has recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The objective is to perform and promote regional and international standardization with the aim of contributing to the establishment of a global information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure. The agreement formalizes an already successful collaboration in 3GPP, the global collaboration for the development of standards for advanced mobile communication technologies, in which ATIS and ETSI are Organizational Partners. The new, formalized relationship between ATIS and ETSI serves to align various common activities and to enable an exchange of knowledge and expertise.

"This agreement further strengthens ATIS' relationship with ETSI and reflects a shared vision regarding the importance of standards in global commerce," said Susan Miller, ATIS President and CEO. "The areas of mutual interest between our two organizations have been strategically mapped to allow more effective collaboration and reflect the fact that standardization efforts increasingly have a global impact. From wireless to broadband to emerging applications such as Smart Grid, standardization is vital to ensuring that new ICT products and services can be deployed."

"ETSI is committed to ensuring global collaboration with all the important standardization organizations of the world. ATIS is unquestionably one of our long-standing partners with whom we have collaborated very effectively in the past, especially in the big success story of 3GPP," commented Walter Weigel, ETSI Director-General. "I am therefore delighted by the establishment of the MoU with ATIS and I am confident that this collaboration will lead to many benefits for the development of ICT standards with worldwide impact."
