2015-02-19 13:46:00| Telecompaper Headlines

(Telecompaper) The new 5G World Alliance (5GWA) will officially launch during the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The alliance wants to provide key platforms for 5G development across new technologies and ensure seamless interoperability with systems of the future, including an all-IPv6-based M2M, the mobile IoT, mobile cloud computing, SDN, NFV, Fringe and Tactile Internet. IPv6 Forum president Latif Ladid will be the founding chair of 5GWA. Ladid has also been a board member of 3GPP PCG since 1999. The alliance will work closely with the ETSI IPv6 ISG and try to get the telecom and internet worlds to integrate and share best practices with principal SDOs such as 3GPP, ETSI, IETF and the ITU. It will also develop across other industry sectors set to gain from the 5G future. The 5GWA is currently establishing its founding members. Companies and other organisations are invited to contact Ladid for more details. In terms of concrete objectives, the alliance wants global harmonization and synergies of telecom and internet worlds, the creation of large-scale worldwide interoperable test beds, the promotion of end-user empowering applications and global systems, the promotion of interoperable implementation of converging and integrated standards, the development of Educational and "5G Ready" programmes, and the resolution of any issues that could create barriers to 5G deployment.
