7 global mobile telcos form post-3G alliance

3G is still establishing itself, but a lot of people are working on what will come next. The Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Initiative has been formed to tackle that problem. The group is made up of seven major international mobile phone operators – China Mobile, KPN, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, Sprint Nextel, T-Mobile and Vodafone.

The group has formed a limited UK company in order to operate most effectively. Together, they have created a set of requirements which a future wide area mobile broadband network must have. Though powerful, the group has no intention of going at this problem alone. They will be working with the existing wireless standards bodies to influence and direct the development and implement the next generation of mobile wireless technology.

There’s no word on how the group will operate – whether it will be staffed separately from the member companies, how it will be funded, or how often it will meet.
