Strategy and role of GSA


GSAs strategy is to inform, educate, and influence opinion about mobile communications using 3GPP technologies, including GSM/EDGE, WCDMA-HSPA/HSPA+, and LTE/LTE-Advanced by reporting on the facts, statistics, developments and trends GSA is a trusted brand used widely across the industry, and is established as the de-facto reference source for the worldwide status of mobile broadband commitments, network deployments and launches, and the supporting devices ecosystems
The GSA website is targeted to the industry q Global reach, users community growing by ~8,000 per year q Over 250K downloads of reports, papers, etc. annually q Significant presence across social network platforms
Approaching 60,000 registered site users

Some operator tes+monials


Collabora+on with GSA in par+cular on the LTE1800 and LTE2600 MHz front has certainly contributed to the fast development of the eco- system into these two bands, as we can see from the high numbers of networks and devices now in these bands. This is helping the industry in deploying 4G LTE networks globally at the fastest speed ever seen for a wireless technology to oer an improved broadband experience to the more demanding customers CSL Limited GSA is doing a wonderful job and its web site gsacom.com has become a one stop shop for any key informa+on like operator roll-outs, device eco system, vendor informa+on, etc. etc. for Mobile Broadband. If you want the latest informa+on for any mobile broadband ecosystem just login to gsacom.com Dialog Axiata Telstra has worked closely with the GSA for a number of years to obtain vital informa+on on emerging technology trends and take up rates. We have also jointly worked to gain industry alignment for new opportuni+es such as the recent emergence of LTE1800. The informa+on papers, LinkedIn site and GSA site allow operators from around the world to obtain +mely informa+on to assist in network and strategic planning decisions. 2
