LETI and Institute for Information Industry of Taiwan Partner on Technologies for Internet Of Tings, 5G
GRENOBLE, France and TAIPEI, Taiwan – October 3, 2016 – Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, and the Institute for Information Industry of Taiwan (III), a non-profit non-governmental technology development organization, today announced an agreement for mutual exploration of a wide range of information and communications technology (ICT) related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G wireless connectivity.
The three-year collaboration will include, but is not limited to, joint development and implementation of IoT and 5G based Smart ICT solutions for the EU and Taiwan, and scientific information exchanges. Also envisioned are cross-invitations to scientific events, joint implementation of international collaborative projects and partnerships, and work on experimental platforms and test beds that can be used to provide real-world validation of solutions.
Leti’s background in IoT and 5G systems, including spectrum management, radio access technologies and protocols, as well as IoT open platforms for large-scale systems, will be a primary contribution, along with its technological roadmaps. With the support from MoEA DoIT, III has actively participated in 5G communication technology research since 2014. In addition to its expertise in IoT systems and services, III will provide access to Taiwanese technology platforms, as well as industry-driven requirements and use cases.
“Our two organizations have very complementary skills and ecosystems, and it’s a pleasure to launch our collaboration. Together we have an excellent opportunity to pilot and demonstrate innovative 5G and IoT-related solutions that will be useful for industries and individuals in Taiwan and the EU,” said Leti VP Europe Laurent HERAULT at the official signing ceremony in Taipei, held during a Leti workshop event there.
“Taiwan is currently supporting and promoting IoT and smart city. The service and platform that based on IoT technology will be the key factor for industrial development. III and LETI’s collaboration will significantly enhance our ability to pursue our mission of promoting industrial applications, R&D technologies, and IoT infrastructures,” commented III Executive Vice President Pao-Chung Ho. “We look forward to our information exchange and collaboration, and to building a creative and effective long-term research partnership between our teams.”
