The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is currently soliciting U.S. industry feedback for a workshop covering 5G next-generation applications and networks for countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. ANSI, through the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA)-funded U.S. Indo-Pacific Standards Technology Cooperation Program (STCP), seeks a co-organizer from the U.S. private sector.
The workshop—tentatively planned for September 2020 in Vietnam—aims to build awareness on the extensive standards development work currently taking place for diverse applications that will run on 5G networks. The event will provide information and communications technology (ICT) enabled applications for autonomous vehicles and intelligent transportation systems, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), health care, energy utility industries, and other vertical applications where standards development is taking place. It will also provide insights to demonstrate how industry-driven standards development boosts innovations, close knowledge gaps about industry-led standards development activities, and facilitate cooperation and discussion between public and private sector participants from both the United States and ASEAN countries.
To help inform an agenda that will better address the U.S. industry priorities, ANSI is currently soliciting U.S. industry feedback for the workshop. Interested stakeholders can contact [email protected] with suggestions or questions by Friday, March 13, 2020.
