TIA Hosts Global Standards Collaboration Meeting in Chicago
TIA hosted a productive Global Standards Collaboration (GSC-11) meeting in Chicago the week before GLOBALCOMM™ 2006. The GSC theme for this meeting was, “Standardization Advancing Global Communications.” Anil Kripalani, GSC-11 chairman, observed, “People’s lives are positively impacted by the world of modern global telecommunications. Leaders from ICT standards bodies from around the world came together last week to address a wide range of subjects including healthcare, public safety and entertainment, and to continue harmonizing their standards activities and increasing the collaboration in the global community.” The final communiqué from the GSC-11 meeting and the final Resolutions of the meeting will be posted this week on the GSC-11 Web site at www.gsc.etsi.org. In addition, carrying the theme that global standards help build global markets, and the fact that the industry leaders in various markets are also the industry’s lead contributors to the standards development process for those segments, there were presentations during GLOBALCOMM 2006, as part of the GLOBALCOMM SUMMIT series, for Regions 1, 2 and 3, EMEA, the Americas, and Asia Pacific. Those presentations will be available on the GLOBALCOMM Web site at www.globalcomm2006.com. For more information, contact Dan Bart at [email protected].
