MFA Industry Liaisons
Alliance of Industrial Internet
With joint efforts of the industrial sectors, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) led and established the Alliance of Industrial Internet, in order to accelerate the development of industrial Internet; to gather the industrial power at home and abroad; to establish a public platform for collaborated improvement in administration, industry, academy, research and application; to conduct joint researches; and to facilitate application of industrial Internet.
LTE-based solutions in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, utilizing shared spectrum, enable both in-building and outdoor coverage and capacity expansion. The CBRS Alliance aims to enable a robust ecosystem towards making LTE-based CBRS solutions available. The MulteFire Alliance and CBRS Alliance support LTE technologies in the USA CBRS (3.55-3.7 GHz band).
Global mobile Suppliers Association
The Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) is an open and independent association. It promotes the interests of suppliers in the mobile telecommunications industry that are driving the 3GPP family of technologies and it tracks industry progress and data points to deliver reports and data to support the global adoption of 3GPP technologies and the global harmonization of spectrum. The MulteFire Alliance is collaborating with GSA on marketing efforts in areas of mutual interest in the field of MulteFire and 5G communication systems and networks.
Industrial Internet Consortium
The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is the world’s leading membership program transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The IIC delivers a trustworthy IIoT in which the world’s systems and devices are securely connected and controlled to deliver transformational outcomes. The Industrial Internet Consortium brings together industry leaders, startups and researchers to drive the innovation of new Industrial Internet products, processes and services through innovative testbeds. The Industrial Internet Consortium is a program of the Object Management Group (OMG). For more information, visit www.iiconsortium.org.
Wireless Broadband Alliance
The Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) supports the development of a converged wireless broadband ecosystem through seamless, secure and interoperable service connections for all devices on Wi-Fi and its significant interconnected technologies. WBA is driving the adoption of wireless broadband and the evolution of Next Generation Wi-Fi, Connected City, Unlicensed and Licensed wireless technologies, and Wireless Innovation. The MulteFire Alliance is collaborating with the WBA on marketing initiatives to further promote LTE-based technology for unlicensed and shared spectrum.
Since 1995, TDD commercial service has been problem solving for a better ecosystem, developing technologies such as microcell and interference protection. TDD in Japan has been enhanced as the XGP specification, adopted in 3GPP standards and making it possible to share the ecosystem with TD-LTE. The XGP Forum cooperates with TDIA and GTI to expand XGP and TD-LTE. As a MulteFire Alliance Industry Liaison, the XGP Forum is supporting the Alliance’s objective to promote MulteFire technology operation using the 1.9 GHz band in Japan (sXGP).
