[The Chosun Ilbo, January 8 2008] Seoul to Host ITU-T Conference

This month Korea plays host to a conference of the ITU-T, the standards-making arm of the International Telecommunications Union.

Experts from around the world will converge on Seoul from Jan. 14 to 25 for the largest-ever gathering of this specialized UN agency.

They'll break into study groups to ponder over global telecom recommendations for 30 agendas, among them the testing efficiency of next-generation networks.

The conference is expected to bolster Korea's status as a world leader in telecom technology, building upon its significant breakthroughs in wireless Internet, known as WiBro, and third-generation digital multimedia broadcasting.
