It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 3GPP TSG meeting on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
Telstra has a long history of utilising the advances and efficiencies of the 3GPP roadmap to build leading network capabilities. In recent times the Gold Coast has been home to Telstra’s world-leading mobile innovation when in February 2018 we opened Australia’s first 5G Innovation Centre. The Centre is designed for testing the next generation of mobile technologies in Australian conditions to support the early commercial deployment of 5G.
These 3GPP meetings are critical to furthering the technical work of developing specifications for the next generation of mobile technology. Your technical expertise and leadership will help all mobile operators, device manufacturers and technology vendors further the work undertaken so far on the specifications leading to the next generation of benefits that will come from the mobile evolution it will create.
On behalf of Telstra, I look forward to hosting you in September.
Group Managing Director Networks, Telstra
