Summit to discuss Testing & Certification – Mobile Devices in India: Joint event of GCF and TSDSI held on 15/4/2015

Telecommunication Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI) and Global Certification Forum (GCF) organized a Summit of selected key stakeholders in the Indian mobile phone industry. The main objective of the workshop was to create awareness among the Indian stakeholders regarding Mobile Devices Testing and Certification. The key participants in the meeting were: Telecom Service Providers (Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL, IDEA, Reliance), Industry Associations (COAI, ICA, SESEI, GSMA), Chipset Manufacturers (Qualcomm, Intel), Test Lab Organizations (Tech Mahindra), and additional participation from GoI, TCOE India, Rohde and Schwarz, etc.

SESEI participated in the summit organized by TDSI and GCF. The purpose of the summit was to consult with industry on the specific challenges of how to ensure device and service quality in India and to explore possible options for “how testing and certification could be beneficial to the Indian mobile market” and what should be the next steps. TSDSI is also actively reaching out to the leadership from the Government of India, Indian operators, mobile manufacturers, chip-set vendors, test organizations, and key ICT Industry Associations. SESEI suggested TSDSI and GCF to work with BIS & Deity in creating a test schedule for their released standards. This is an important exercise as otherwise this standards in its current form will demand repetition of tests already carried out by GCF. GCF shall also strengthen the testing infrastructure in India, which is of importance to Government of India. This will further help India to become a part of global community through MRAs.
