Supports the Mobile Computing Promotion
Consortium's (MCPC) Start-up Business Support
Program for Companies in the Wireless Area to
Gain Access to Japan's Markets and Companies.
The PCCA evaluates wireless
technologies and mobile-communications
architectures. It also promotes wireless
interoperability through workshops and
analysis, and develops industry
recommendations. It addresses the
interaction between networks, devices,
interfaces, computing platforms, middleware
The Portable Computer and
Communications Association was founded to
provide a forum for disparate industries to
meet, learn about each other, and collaborate
on the interaction of the multiple
technologies involved in wireless solutions.
The challenges that surround the
implementation of true mobility are complex.
Without a forum such as the PCCA, the
realization of the vision would be delayed.
The PCCA standards and architecture
committee is the most active committee, and
conducts regular meetings to investigate new
wireless technologies. It previously defined
interface standards for wireless modems and
network management approaches for wireless and
mobile computing. The committee produced
standards STD-101 and STD-201.
This area provides information about
forthcoming meetings. It also has press
releases and information on other activities.
