UMTS FORUM ANNOUNCES MAJOR NEW 3G MARKET STUDY - Market report will analyse future take-up of mobile multimedia services and applications

January 27, 2000: The UMTS Forum has commissioned global research and consulting firm Yankee Group to conduct a major new study into the future market for third generation mobile multimedia services that will be enabled by UMTS/IMT-2000 networks.

The results of their work will be presented at the UMTS Forum’s General Assembly #19 to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 17th-19th April 2000. The study will be a key input to the Forum's future activities and work programme, and the Forum will deliver a new report based on these study inputs before the end of this year.

’With much of the technical and regulatory work on UMTS/IMT-2000 now complete, we expect the year ahead to be dominated by an increased focus on services and applications for 3G’, says UMTS Forum Chairman Dr Bernd Eylert. ’With this in mind, we fully expect this major new international market study to serve as a key input to business decision makers as we draw ever closer to the commercial launch of the world’s first IMT-2000 networks.’

’The UMTS Forum is a market-driven organisation and we have already gathered a substantial amount of knowledge of the 3G market’, adds Olivier Burois, Chairman, UMTS Forum Market Aspects Group (MAG). ’To complement this, we hope that this study will address the following issues: What are the market drivers for 3G; who will benefit from 3G mobility; what is the time-line for 3G commercialisation and how will the market vary in different regions ?’

The new study builds on the key findings and recommendations by the UMTS Forum’s as published in a series of authoritative reports that include Report No.1 ’A Regulatory Framework for UMTS’ and No.8 ’The Future Mobile Market: Global trends and developments with a focus on Western Europe’. Both documents are available for free download or on CD-ROM by request from the UMTS Forum Secretariat.
