Fujitsu Siemens Computers is now a member of the GSM Association's (GSMA) Mobile Broadband Initiative, which was formed to create a new category of always-connected Mobile Broadband devices. The European IT infrastructure provider is underlining its belief that Mobile Broadband will be the leading network access technology of the future.

GSMA is the global trade group representing more than 750 GSM mobile operators across 218 countries and territories, and more than 200 manufacturers and suppliers also support GSMA's initiatives. GSMA's primary goals are to ensure that mobile phones and wireless services work globally and are easily accessible, enhancing their value to individual customers and national economies while creating new business opportunities for the industry.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers is now supporting the GSMA's development and promotion of a Mobile Broadband service mark, a global identifier that will help consumers identify a range of "ready to run" Mobile Broadband devices. The Mobile Broadband mark is supported by 17 of the world's well known IT and mobile companies. The Mobile Broadband service mark will be seen at point of sale, on the packaging and on products themselves.

The global Mobile Broadband service mark will be applied to the entire professional notebooks range from Fujitsu Siemens Computers.

"We decided at a very early stage to equip our products with high-speed 3G/UMTS as the network access technology of tomorrow, we were supplying notebooks with integrated broadband access as early as 2006," explained Louis Jouanny, head of mobility marketing programs at Fujitsu Siemens Computers. "Future mobility will require even greater flexibility than we now experience."

"We are delighted that Fujitsu Siemens Computers has joined the GSMA's Mobile Broadband Initiative and is committed to changing the way people get online forever," said Michael O'Hara, chief marketing officer of the GSMA. "With the Mobile Broadband service mark appearing on notebooks from Fujitsu Siemens Computers, end users will know that they will always be able to connect wherever Mobile Broadband is available."
