The 5G Infrastructure Association – Public Private Partnership (5G PPP), an international non-profit association for collaboration on 5G communications systems and networks with international bodies, and 4G Americas, a wireless industry trade association representing LTE mobile broadband technologies including LTE-Advanced and beyond to 5G, announcing their Memorandum of Understanding.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by 4G Americas President, Chris Pearson, and the Chair of the 5GPPP Board, Werner Mohr, outlines the basis for ongoing cooperation and collaboration between the two organizations. The MoU specifically sets forth the agreement to share information on basic system concepts for 5G, spectrum frequencies to support the global regulatory process, and the preparation of future global 5G standards by identification of common interest and consensus building.
Werner Mohr, Chair of the 5G PPP Board, commented, “Our mutual goals with 4G Americas and their insight on the requirements for 5G in North America and Latin America will be valuable for the planning work at 5G PPP. This is an agreement that will help the mobile industry make the most of the valuable work at both our leading 5G visionary organizations.” Chris Pearson, President of 4G Americas, stated, “Planning for the future 5G connected society on a global basis will be imperative for the overall success and the achievement of a vision that is now in its nascent stages. 4G Americas looks forward to the cooperation with 5G PPP on the 5G vision and requirements for communications systems and networks.”
