Skyworks Joins European Telecommunications Standards Institute to Help Develop the 5G Standard

Skyworks has now become a member of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. ETSI is an independent, non-profit organization that establishes global standards for telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic communication networks and services.

The ETSI is a key channel through which the 3GPP organization submits contributions for 5G requirements. Its membership is comprised of over 800 organizations from more than 60 countries across five continents. ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, broadcast and Internet technologies. Its standards enable the technologies on which business and society rely. For example, their standards for GSM, DECT, Smart Cards and electronic signatures have helped to revolutionize modern life all over the world.

As a member, Skyworks will actively participate in the development of the 5G standard to ensure interoperability among systems and networks, compliance with legislation, security, and other needs of the industry. Skyworks is also a key contributor to the 3GPP body for Radio Access Network (RAN4) technical specifications.
