Welcome to the World of Standards…… ETSI & 3GPP at MWC 2011

At MWC 2011, ETSI - together with 3GPP - once again had a booth presence to facilitate interaction with its members, to promote ICT standards amongst a larger audience and, last but not least, to create awareness of its diverse areas of activity by showcasing its new cluster approach.

Photo of stand at Mobile World Congress 2011At this year's event the main focus was on LTE /LTE Advanced technology and thus 3GPP, but also ETSI's cluster concept which aims to provide a simplified yet comprehensive introduction to all of ETSI's activities in ICT standardization.

Live presentations on ‘ LTE Security', ‘Machine-to-Machine' and ‘FemtoceGraph of the sectors in "A Connected World" containing Home & Office, Better living with ICT, Content Delivery, Fixed Networks, Wireless Systems, Transportation, Connecting Things, Interoperability, Public Safety & Securityll Evolution' were given on three consecutive days at the booth.  Following the presentations, a drinks & tapas reception took place that provided an ideal networking opportunity.
