Industry Members Collaborate on 3G Handset Functionality
Posted: 10-Apr-2002 [Source: 3Gnewsroom]

[Global Certification Forum begins meetings to coordinate development of 3G terminals promoting seamless usability.]

"In a common effort to ensure the successful introduction of the first 3G terminals onto new networks, industry members have begun a ground-breaking series of collaborative meetings. Through these, operators, terminal manufacturers and test-equipment providers aim to prioritise the 3G terminal functions most necessary for successful user-equipment deployment.

"Chaired by Anite Telecoms and co-ordinated by the Global Certification Forum (GCF), a series of roundtable discussions have begun in the UK and at ETSI's headquarters in Sophia Antipolis, France. A key goal of the meetings is to agree on the priority services and user-equipment functions that are essential in determining a handset's successful introduction onto a 3G network.

"It is only once the test requirements priority is agreed that the necessary test cases can be developed; something, until now, lacking in 3G. This co-ordinated prioritisation will ensure all terminals, wherever manufactured, can be developed to the same conformance standards. Meeting conformance standards is a regulatory requirement before any handset can be launched onto a network.

"3G technology offers an unparalleled level of functionality and an almost limitless range of services," commented Anite Telecoms' Bob Morley, Chairman of the GCF 3G meetings. "Without prioritisation and a common direction, there is little chance that all required testing can be achieved, and so little chance of guaranteeing that terminals will work on the new networks."
