"ITU-T provides an excellent platform to enable the exchange of information between major players in telecommunications, from governments and companies to the world's leading academic institutions. A particular benefit of the ITU-T meetings for a company as TE Connectivity is the ability to focus on specific work items with the potential to propose and develop new areas of study suited to its needs. Besides the other numerous services and benefits offered, ITU-T membership has enabled us to form professional and informal relationships with delegates from other leading member organizations, which is a very pleasant aspect on a human level while also conducive to fruitful standardization policy negotiations."
