HUBER+SUHNER joins NGMN Alliance as partner to meet the challenges of the impending 5G future

Vancouver, Canada, 20 November, 2018 – HUBER+SUHNER, a leading manufacturer of components and systems for electrical and optical connectivity, has announced it has joined the industry body the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance.

The NGMN Alliance advocates and seeks to encourage expansion of the communications experience by providing an integrated and cohesively-managed delivery platform that brings affordable mobile broadband services to the end user. The Alliance has a particular focus on 5G, while accelerating the development of LTE-Advanced and its ecosystem.

CEO of NGMN, Dr Peter Meissner, said: “We are delighted to welcome HUBER+SUHNER as our new industry partner. The work they carry out is incredibly valuable and covers important parts of the 5G ecosystem. HUBER+SUHNER produces innovations that are advancing the capabilities of their customers worldwide. We are excited to jointly embark on projects which will contribute to or even extend our existing work programme and by doing so demonstrate our on-going commitment of contributing to the industry.”

Gianna Terenghi, Head of Market Unit Communication at HUBER+SUHNER, said: “We are widely involved in 5G developments, from connectivity solutions, to wavelength-division multiplexing and optical switching. It makes perfect sense to join NGMN at this time, to not only learn from and work with other organisations in the 5G eco-system collaboratively, but to also share our participation in the development and delivery of 5G and associated technology in the future. The contributions delivered by our experts to the NGMN work programme support standards development with a future-thinking outlook, while guiding the industry towards the successful deployment of 5G, benefiting end users in a range of locations, including high density urban and underserved rural areas.”

The announcement came as the NGMN Industry Conference & Exhibition opened in Vancouver, Canada. As well as the announcement of a new Board and Chairman for the Alliance, the exhibition and conference hosted the world’s top Operator CTOs, who came together to discuss the future of mobile broadband. Sponsored by Canadian operator TELUS, the conference featured more than 60 speakers across two days.
