GSMA North America plays an integral role in the deployment of emerging technologies and digital solutions, ensuring that North America remains an innovative and prosperous market. Last year, it supported commercial launches of multiple Mobile IoT networks in the U.S. and Mexico, thus laying the foundation for the arrival of a huge number of low-cost, low-power IoT devices and services. As of July 2018, it has facilitated full-IP operator Interconnects of Advanced Communication services, Business Messaging Labs, pre-commercial pilots, monthly active users of RCS (rich communication services), and interoperable operator identity solutions. Furthermore, GSMA North America continues to support the global GSMA programmes in driving 5G Fixed Wireless Access with operators, achieving commercial success for Mobile Connect and driving the launch of commercial Mobile IoT networks.
