TSDSI signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with 5G Brasil and Malaysian Technical Standards Forum Bhd (“MTSFB”) on 17th May 2022, World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.
The MoUs strengthen TSDSI’s objectives of establishing a formal mechanism to collaborate with regional bodies from other countries to mutually align standards development efforts and support each other’s requirements in Global Standards deliberations.
5G Brasil and MTSFB, like TSDSI, play a key role in strategically leveraging digital technologies for the growth of our respective countries – by way of defining requirements and seeking globally competitive solutions for the same.
