Thinfilm Joins GSMA


Reading time ( words)

Thin Film Electronics ASA, a leader in the development and commercialization of printed electronics and smart systems, today announced that it has joined the GSMA, the organization that represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide and hosts the annual Mobile World Congress conference.

The GSMA unites nearly 800 operators with more than 250 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem to get to the heart of issues facing the mobile industry and help shape the future of mobile communications. Thinfilm’s NFC product strategy and radio frequency (RF) roadmap are built around smart mobile devices, and membership in the GSMA is a natural extension of Thinfilm’s commitment to enabling mobile-centric B2B and B2C applications that combine wireless communication and dynamic sensing with the unique benefits of printed electronics.

Mobile World Congress 2015 will take place March 2-5, 2015, at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, where new and innovative mobile technologies and services will be showcased. Thinfilm’s chief executive officer, Dr. Davor Sutija, will deliver a keynote speech on ways to cross the divide between digital and physical worlds, while Thinfilm’s chief strategy officer, Jennifer Ernst, will present on industry-led mobile innovation.

“We are thrilled to be joining the world’s most influential association of mobile technology companies and contribute to its widely regarded annual conference,” said Dr. Davor Sutija, Thinfilm’s chief executive officer. “We will strive to add value to the GSMA’s important work and we support its focus on worldwide interoperability for mobile devices and services.”

“The GSMA is pleased to welcome Thinfilm as an associate member,” said Vicky Sleight, Head of Member Services, GSMA. “We share a vision that NFC is a key enabling technology for the next generation of mobile commerce and look forward to Thinfilm’s contributions to the work of the organization.”
