Global Certification Forum (GFC)
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
United Kingdom | Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) is the organisational backbone to GCF Certification. Founded in 1999, the membership driven Forum brings together technical experts from the world's leading Manufacturers, Operators and the Test Industry. Together members define the certification requirements that really work for the industry - because they have been developed by the industry.Any device incorporating cellular mobile connectivity can be certified:- Featurephones and Smartphones- Tablets- USB Modems- Portable WiFi Hotspots- Embedded Modules- Laptops- Connected Consumer and M2M/IoT devicesThe GCF scheme evolves in sync with developments in mobile technologies and the changing needs of the industry. It is the only device certification scheme that cover all these technologies:- LTE (3GPP)- 3G UMTS (3GPP)- GSM (3GPP)- CDMA2000 (3GPP2)GCF members include leading mobile network operators representing all the key markets worldwide, over 70 device manufacturers and other stakeholders such as test system suppliers and test laboratories.GCF's current priorities are to reduce industry costs and improve end-user experience by:- Promoting adoption of GCF certification by the mobile industry in markets where it is not presently used- Promoting GCF Certification for any product that incorporates mobile connectivity- Increasing the use of GCF Certification in its current core markets in Asia Pacific, China, Europe and North America,
GreenTouch
GreenTouch
Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)
GreenTouch is a consortium of leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry, academic and non-governmental research experts dedicated to fundamentally transforming communications and data networks, including the Internet, and significantly reducing the carbon footprint of ICT devices, platforms and networks.Two factors motivated the formation of GreenTouch in early 2010. First, energy consumption in ICT networks is increasing in part due to exponential network growth, especially with the explosion of wireless data traffic. Network growth is outpacing equipment efficiency, which is slowing as limits to historical capacity and scaling laws loom. This trend could adversely affect the Internet and the broad energy efficiency benefits that ICT networks and associated smart technologies enable. The second motivation is the urgent need to meet the global challenge of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Every industry must play its part and ICT, at the forefront of technology, can be a leader here.To dramatically reduce the energy consumption of today’s ICT networks, a radical new approach was needed. Meeting the challenge depends on collaborative efforts that take advantage of innovation and expertise from around the world. GreenTouch brings together this expertise in a consortium whose members -- leading industry enterprises, entrepreneurs, and researchers from across the ICT community -- work in concert to invent the technologies that can achieve sustainable networks in the decades to come.GreenTouch has also been stimulated by recent research that identifies a gap between rapid network growth rates today and historical equipment efficiency improvements -- a gap that promises to increase over the decades ahead. Technologies in use today, even considering best-case projected energy efficiency improvements, are not expected to be sufficient to check the rate of energy consumption over the long term. At the same time, key technology energy limits associated with existing underlying components of ICT networks (optical, wireless, electronics, routing, architecture, etc.) are still many orders of magnitude below current operating levels.
Near Field Communication Forum (NFC)
Near Field Communication Forum (NFC)
United States | Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)
The NFC Forum is a non-profit industry association whose membership draws from all parts of the NFC ecosystem. Working within the framework of the NFC Forum, member organizations share development, application, and marketing expertise to develop the best possible solutions for advancing the use of Near Field Communication, enhancing the lives of consumers worldwide and advancing members’ business objectives.Near field communication, abbreviated NFC, is a form of contactless communication between devices like smartphones or tablets. Contactless communication allows a user to wave the smartphone over a NFC compatible device to send information without needing to touch the devices together or go through multiple steps setting up a connection.Near Field Communication utilizes electromagnetic radio fields while technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi focus on radio transmissions instead.Bluetooth. Radio-frequency identification. QR codes. The modern world is ever expanding and with it comes new technologies that change the way we communicate and interact with each other.Who benefits from near field communication?- Busy moms checking out at the grocery store- Businessmen and women riding the subway to work- Businesses looking for faster, more secure payment methods for customers- Students touring a museum- And many moreNear field communication (NFC) technology lets smartphones and other enabled devices communicate with other devices containing a NFC tag. Whether swiping your smartphone at the checkout lane in the grocery store, waving it over a display at a local museum, or bumping phones with a friend to share the latest games, near field technology lets you pay, play, and learn easily.
