Nokia joins the GSM Association
Posted on 21-Sep-2004 21:27. | Tags Filed under: News.

Interestingly, until now Nokia wasn't part of the association that represents 1.1 billion GSM users and 660 GSM mobile operators across 208 countries and territories. Nokia has joined the GSM Association (GSMA) on 13 September.

“On behalf of the global GSM mobile operator community, we are delighted to welcome Nokia to the Association,” said Rob Conway, CEO of the GSM Association and a member of its Board. “Through its increasingly varied strategic initiatives, the GSMA aims to drive success for our operator members and enhance the range and quality of services available to mobile phone users globally. With its insight and experience as a market leader in mobile handsets, and a major force in the infrastructure sector, Nokia can make a major contribution to the success of many of these key industry initiatives.”

Mr Matti Alahuhta, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Nokia explained; “Nokia is an active supporter of GSM/EDGE/WCDMA technologies, and the company is a leading end-to-end supplier worldwide. Operators are key customers of Nokia and we cooperate with them in many areas. Indeed, it is an important objective of ours to work with operators and bring great new innovations to the market together with them. Nokia has decided to join the GSMA as an Associate member in order to further strengthen its relationships with mobile operators.”
