AT&T, Comcast and six other companies have joined that the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks. The others are AASKI, Orchestra Technology, RideScout, Saft Batteries, TRX Systems, and VocalZoom. TIA represents the complete communications value chain – from Internet and wireless service providers and solution services providers to the electronic equipment and component manufacturers.
The approval of these new members follows the appointment of Scott Belcher as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) late last year, along with the addition of a new CTO, a Senior VP of Government Affairs, and a Senior VP and a Counsel. Belcher is focusing to better align the organization with the public policy, technology, business and standards needs of the rapidly shifting information and communications technology industry.
