 Qatari based operator, Vodafone Qatar, has become a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Membership will allow Vodafone Qatar to participate in the ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T), which gathers experts to develop standards and protocols for the global information and communication technologies (ICT) industry.

“We’re very honoured and excited to be part of this prestigious organisation and join hands with world’s experts to help take the ICT industry, especially in Qatar, to newer heights in line with Qatar’s vision to become one of the world’s leading smart cities by 2030. Vodafone Qatar will bring a solid track record, knowledge and expertise to ITU’s local, regional and global discussions and strongly contribute to further build the fundamental standards of our industry. We also look forward to adding great value to conversations and initiatives around smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT),” said Kyle Whitehill, chief executive officer of Vodafone Qatar.

“I am delighted to welcome Vodafone Qatar to ITU-T,” said Malcolm Johnson, Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Bureau. “Their contribution to this body will be immeasurable both in regards to their technological expertise in the areas of M2M technologies and smart cites but also their contribution to the overall mission of the ITU.”

The ITU is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technology and it is made up of over 700 members and associates from the private sector and academia, in addition to 193 government members.
