ETSI pro­duces glob­ally-ap­pli­ca­ble stan­dards for In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nolo­gies and works for in­ter­op­er­abil­ity be­tween devices, ven­dors, ser­vice providers. In In­dia, it in­tends to in­crease the vis­i­bil­ity of Euro­pean stan­dard­iza­tion.

Voice&Data caught up with ETSI CTO Adrian Scrase to know more about its pact with TSDSI and how stan­dard­iza­tion will help in the ad­vance­ment of emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies.

Voice&Data: What type of role ETSI is go­ing to play in In­dia and how it is go­ing to help the In­dian ICT mar­ket?

Adrian Scrase: The mo­tive is to gen­er­ate con­fi­dence for in­vest­ment and to re­duce cost; th­ese are the two prime rea­sons why we en­tered into stan­dard­iza­tion.

Many years ago, stan­dards were con­sid­ered on a na­tional ba­sis, such as In­dian stan­dards, Ger­man stan­dards, etc., and mov­ing for­ward, it gen­er­ated a na­tional mar­ket and in par­tic­u­lar with mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tion, na­tional mar­kets are very help­ful.

But for prod­ucts that can be used world­wide, you need to have stan­dards that all other coun­tries should ad­here to. So, the point of our pres­ence in In­dia is to try to find ways where In­dia can work with Europe and de­velop com­mon stan­dards to­gether with other re­gions of the world.
