Kevin Holley, Head of Standards, Telefonica

Although the detailed wireless standards are driven mainly by vendors, many of whom have large teams working on the specifications, an operator's voice in the process is still powerful, as they have the market relationship with users. Which is why Telefonica is one of many operators working collaboratively within the NGMN to define their requirements for 5G. One of the biggest challenges though is to keep the standards momentum going, to end some work that remains outstanding in 4G in order to free up time and resources to work on 5G.
