GSMA LA Working Group Meetings
GSMA Latin America’s Operator-led Working Groups provide GSMA regional members the opportunity to get engaged in GSMA activities and programmes, exchange information, provide training, network as well as establishing regional industry positions.
Interested in participating? We strongly encourage Latin American operator members interested in participating in the Working Groups sessions engage with each coordinator and stay tuned for the various Working Group meetings held throughout the year.
Wholesale Agreements and Solutions LATAM Group (WASL)
This group brings together the entire community engaged in the international business of our members – wholesale market and roaming and value added services – to discuss the best technical and commercial practices and promote the growth of these services in Latin America. WASL also brings to the region the latest developments from the global WAS group and works with other GSMA groups worldwide, such as the Interoperability Data specifications and Settlement Group (IDSG) and Transferred Account Data (TAP).
Security & Fraud Working Group (SEGF)
The GSMA LA Security and Fraud group aims to be the main channel of coordination and communication between the region’s operators. Sharing best practices in these issues benefits the operators and the mobile industry as a whole. At GSMA LA, this group fosters cooperation between the different companies in the region and provide means to channel their concerns to governmental, regulatory and other related organizations in order to take necessary actions in a timely manner.
Regulatory Working Group (REGU)
This group is focused on the debate and analysis on regulatory issues and events that are of relevance in Latin America such as regulatory reforms, infrastructure deployment barriers, security and personal data, spectrum policy and roadmaps, 5G and the future of communications, and others. In addition, it promotes the dialogue with international organizations, inter-governmental and wider ecosystem players. The group is an important source of learning and information sharing for mobile.
Technical & Terminals Working Group (TECT)
This working group’s mission is to provide support to members of GSMA Latin America regarding technical aspects of networks of the GSM/3GPP family and their evolution. The TECT group is also a forum for the exchange of its members’ experiences in the implementation of networks and services and a channel to disseminate and promote recommendations, events and GSMA training programs. The group has the goal of identifying and consolidating common regional technical and commercial requirements and sharing them with the appropriate stakeholders in the telco ecosystem.
