ETSI Headquarters, Sophia Antipolis, France – 17 February 2011.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is pleased to announce that it has recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS). 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 two of six 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.
