A standards body like TSDSI can play a big role in standardizing these innovations, for speedy growth of a telecom eco-system in India to bring these innovations to the masses” – said Dr Abhay Karandikar, Secretary, TSDSI & HOD, Dept of Electrical Engg, IIT Bombay.
The 18th meeting of the Global Standards Collaboration (GSC), took place on 22 - 23 July 2014, hosted by ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) in Sophia Antipolis, France.
