Apple, Ziggo, Peking University join NGMN Alliance
The Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance has announced that Apple, Dutch cable operator Ziggo and Peking University have joined the global NGMN partner community. The announcement was made at the presentation of the latest results of NGMN’s 5G Initiative in Beijing. Earlier this year, the NGMN Board — CTOs from 20 leading international operators — made the decision to focus NGMN’s future activities on defining the end-to-end requirements for 5G. A global team is now working on the definition of these consolidated operator requirements to support the standardisation and subsequent availability of 5G frm 2020 and beyond. The NGMN 5G workshop attracted more than 100 experts and strategists from leading global NGMN operators, vendors and research partners.
NGMN Alliance CEO Peter Meissner said Ziggo, Apple, and Peking University would be expected to contribute significantly to the upcoming work of the NGMN 5G Initiative. “They will play a vital role in our efforts to shape the vision and requirements for 5G,” he said.
