Posted on 19-Mar-2005 09:26. | Tags Filed under: News.



In order to boost Europe's leadership in mobile and wireless communications and services, 15 telecommunications companies have launched the eMobility Technology Platform for mobile and wireless communications.

According to the group's The Platform is designed to enhance cooperation amongst industry players, including the research community and public authorities, most notably the European Commission. The overall objective of the Platform is to drive future technology development in mobile and wireless communications in the way that best serves Europe's citizens and the European economy.

"Mobile and wireless communications have created unprecedented possibilities for people to communicate and have been instrumental in generating economic growth. Europe has been leading this development, based on the timely initiative of administrations, the scale of the EU market, a consistent regulatory approach, as well as considerable industrial and R&D investment," said Magnus Madfors, Chairman of the eMobility Steering Board.

"In order to maintain the position of Europe in the global market for mobile and wireless systems in the 2010 - 2020 time frame, it will be necessary to develop large-scale European approaches to system research and development as well as to wireless services and applications in the context of digital convergence. The eMobility Technology Platform will define and implement a comprehensive research agenda in the mobile and wireless sector to this end," he continued.

Fifteen telecom equipment vendors, component makers and operators -Alcatel, Deutsche Telekom, Ericsson, France Telecom, H3G, Lucent Technologies, Motorola, Nokia, Philips, Siemens, STMicroelectronics, Thales, TIM, Telefónica Móviles España, S.A.and Vodafone, in collaboration with leading European academics- have committed to create and maintain the required momentum for driving the activities forward.

The key objectives of the eMobility Technology Platform include the development of a common mid- to long-term vision to maximise the benefit of mobile and wireless communications. The group will also work to identify of a set of generic applications for 2010 - 2020 and to create an action plan and time-table for the key developments in this period.

The group says that more than 100 organisations have subscribed to this initiative and have planned to attend the kick-off general meeting on the 5th of April in Brussels.
