The NTI’s Competence Center for Wireless Communication and the Internet of Things based in The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) received the status of an invited participant in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) consortium.
The status will allow Skoltech specialists to have access at an early stage to the results of standardization of new versions of mobile communication protocols, as well as to discuss issues of the use of wireless technologies at the global level. The membership in the consortium is also necessary for patent clearing of the institute's current and future developments, Skoltech noted.
The Head of Competence Center Dmitry Lakontsev noted that the development of partnership with 3GPP will guarantee 100% compatibility with the growing pool of 5G devices and patent purity of developments.
