Clear Joins the GSMA

We’re excited to announce that we have become members of the GSMA, one of the largest mobile network operator associations in the world. With over 800 member companies, the GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide including handset and device makers, software companies, equipment providers and internet companies, as well as organizations in adjacent industry sectors.

The GSMA also produces industry-leading events such as Mobile World Congress, Mobile World Congress Shanghai, Mobile World Congress Americas and the Mobile 360 Series of conferences.

We’re honored to join the conversation with industry thought leaders and help promote interoperability and standardization across the mobile operator industry. As an enterprise blockchain company focused on wholesale trade and settlement, we look forward to collaborating with GSMA members on mobile business use cases. We have already worked with leading telcos to carry out several proof of concepts (PoCs) focused on the international voice wholesale settlement, and are looking to launch a roaming settlement PoC later this year.

We are currently engaged with the following working groups and look forward to joining and contributing to additional groups in the future:

  • Wholesale Agreements and Solutions Group (WAS) – To help develop roaming and interconnect agreement templates and wholesale charging principles.
  • Internet Group (IG) – To help research, analyze and measure the potential opportunities and impacts of new web and internet technologies on mobile operator networks and platforms, specifically with regards to blockchain and 5G technologies.
  • Interoperability Data Specifications and Settlement Group (IDS) – To help develop  and maintain data interchange specifications, especially with regards to roaming settlement.
