Important 3GPP Melbourne briefing in September

The 3G Partnership Project (3GPP) is collaborating with the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) to convene an event that will provide 3GPP with the opportunity to brief executive-level representatives of Australian governments, academia and industry on the important role performed by 3GPP in the development and maintenance of open standards.

This is the first time 3GPP will have provided a briefing of this type in Australia, and it therefore presents a unique opportunity to hear directly from 3GPP leadership about the current status and strategic direction for 3GPP standards, including future 5G plans.

Event date: Tuesday, 18 September 2018

Time: From 1.15 to 5.00 pm

Venue: Room 108, Greenwood Theatre, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Melbourne, Grattan Street, Parkville

3GPP unites seven of the world’s telecommunications standard development organisations to provide a stable environment in which to define the open standards underpinning current and future mobile cellular networks. The body’s open standards work aims to:

  • support global operational communication technologies and capabilities for specific business- and mission-critical sectors of the communications market;
  • provide a path to a connected society via LTE and 5G specification work to meet a futuristic set of use cases, specifically by evolving broadband access, meeting the need of machine-type communications and by providing ultra-reliable and low latency connectivity;
  • progress dialogue at government, public safety, security agency, transport and industry stakeholder level.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from 3GPP and CDMPS representatives on these vital topics. Registration details are available here.
