In order to meet the diverse needs of our members different categories of membership are available as follows.
Operator Membership is open to licensed mobile network operators using a GSM family technology.
Industry Membership is open to companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset and device makers, software companies, equipment providers and internet companies, as well as organisations in industry sectors such as financial services, healthcare, media, transport and utilities.
Rapporteur Membership is open to Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) and non-GSM licensed operators moving to LTE/HSPA or those wishing to roam on GSM networks. Rapporteur Membership is also open to affiliates of operator members, who are Machine to Machine (M2M) operators.
