On April, 2018, PROTEI has become an associate member of GSM Association (GSMA). Only the mobile operators can be Full Members, so GSMA guaranteed the status of Associative Member to our company until March 31, 2019.
PROTEI has successful experience working with the GSMA within the participation at the World Mobile Congress (MWC). However, GSMA mission is not limited by IT-events organizing. It is a global platform that ensures interests of all members at the mobile communications market. Mobile operators, equipment suppliers, regulatory organizations and certainly ordinary users can benefit of GSMA activity. 750 mobile operators in 220 countries and more than 200 equipment manufacturers are members of the GSM Association. PROTEI has been operating on the international telecommunications market for more than 15 years, so our joining to GSMA was expected.
The GSMA Associate Membership has various advantages including the business ones. Firstly, PROTEI connects with a global mobile community and advanced information resources such as standards, methods of their implementation and analytical reports. Mirrored, we will be able to post information about our achievements and products, and also take part in working groups and industry focused projects discussing the GSM networks development issues. Secondly, the status of a GSMA Associate Member is granted only to reliable companies with a certain annual turnover and relevant experience in mobile technologies.
