ETSI provides members with an open and inclusive environment to support the development, ratification and testing of globally applicable standards for ICT systems and services across all sectors of industry and society. We are a non-profit body, with more than 900 member organizations worldwide, drawn from 60 countries and five continents. The members comprise a diversified pool of large and small private companies, research entities, academia, government, and public organizations. ETSI is officially recognized by the EU as a European Standards Organization (ESO) –


ETSI is a founding partner of 3GPP.


3GPP specifications cover cellular telecommunications technologies, including radio access, core network and service capabilities, which provide a complete system description for ‘mobile’.

Our mission continues to be the creation of ‘the Mobile Broadband Standard’, with an increasing emphasis towards connecting the internet of things – whether the need is for ultra-reliable low latency communications at one end of the scale or for energy efficient low-cost, low-power sensors and devices at the other. The 5G and LTE-Advanced ecosystem will allow for global network evolution, at the appropriate pace for the market need and the local state of readiness. The 3GPP model is one that maximises on its compatibility with legacy 3GPP standardized interfaces and equipment, delivering the promise of a ubiquitous end-to-end ecosystem that can support a growing number of use cases –
