Quotes

"For too long the broadband and broadcasting communities have been at loggerheads about the use of the UHF spectrum band. There have been many different views and perspectives. On the basis of discussions with the two sectors, I have put forward a single scheme that could provide a way forward for Europe to thrive in the digital century,” Lamy said."
Says Michael OMichael O Hara, chief marketing officer, GSM Association: "The growth in embedded connectivity is likely to be fuelled in part by regulations in the European Union and Russia making it mandatory for new vehicles to ship with systems that are able to automatically alert emergency services in the event of an accident."
"With the mobile operators offering the DOH a discount for messages sent through MomConnect, we have made sure the platform is free for the end-user. It launched in the six widely-spoken languages in SA – English, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho and Setswana – but more languages will come onon board in the next two months."
"What we are trying to now initiate as a project between ourselves and the operators is to check the equipment's IMEI. It is more of a reference given to all approved equipment, not only in Oman but worldwide" said the TRA official, who is in charge of steering the quality of the service department
