Standards Leadership within the 3GPP

The 3GPP is a key international standards body that develops mobile wireless telecommunications specifications. There are many companies actively participating in meetings and contributing to mobile wireless technology standards development within the 3GPP. It is difficult to gauge the level of various companies’ contributions and leadership in the 3GPP standards development process.

This research report evaluates the 3GPP standards leadership of top companies in a way that is comprehensive, objective, and straightforward. It concludes with the resulting relative positions of participating companies in terms of their overall standards leadership in the 3GPP based on multiple measurable indices. There are six companies that are in the top ten in every one of the six indices looked at.
