The Taiwan Association of Information and Communication Standards (TAICS) and the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) hosted the 4th TAICS-TTA Joint Workshop on November 23, 2022, to welcome the next-generation 5G/6G standards. The workshop focused on 5G-Advanced and Beyond. Dr. Daekyum Kim, Chairman of the Mobile Communication Technical Committee, TTA, and Dr. Hyeon Woo LEE, Vice Chairman of the Mobile Communication Technical Committee, TTA, from Korea, led the in-person exchanges in Taiwan. Speakers included representatives from LGE, Samsung, and SKT. Chunghwa Telecom, MediaTek, Spectacular, Pegatron, and National Taiwan University represented Taiwan. Participants shared and exchanged views on the latest progress of current 5G/6G standards.

The two parties met at the workshop in person for the first time after the pandemic. In his speech, TAICS Chairman Jyuo-Min Shyu said that TAICS is eager to welcome representatives from international standards organizations to resume regular exchanges and visits after the country reopens. Doing so will strengthen friendships, spark more ideas, and generate more opportunities for partnerships for technical standard exchanges. In his online speech, TTA Vice President Kyoung Cheol Koo mentioned that digital development is ever-changing. From 3G to 5G or even the next generation, TTA is happy to share the progress of the latest 3GPP standards with Taiwanese companies. TTA will continue to play an important role by sharing the insights of Samsung, ETRI, LGE, and SKT on new technologies and work with Taiwanese companies to exchange the latest developments of current telecommunications standards.

The signing of an MOU between TAICS and TTA in 2017 launched regular communications between the parties. In addition to continuing the discussion of the previous year’s topics and presenting the 3GPP Rel-18 standard, this event also invited representatives from telecom operators of Taiwan and South Korea Telecom to introduce and share information about 5G/6G technologies (5G O-RAN, 5G Smart Pole, and NR Sidelink). In addition to continuing to support the development of 5G/6G technologies and cooperation-related topics in the future, TAICS and TTA also look forward to cooperating to create better industry results and contributions through learning from and discussing with each other. This event was co-organized by ITRI and the Cloud Computing and IoT Association in Taiwan and sponsored by Chunghwa Telecom and MediaTek. A total of 80 representatives from companies in Taiwan and South Korea participated in person and online.
