The five-year collaboration will include, but is not limited to, joint development and implementation of
IoT and 5G based Smart ICT solutions for the EU and Taiwan, and scientific information exchanges.
Also envisioned are cross-invitations to scientific events, joint implementation of international
collaborative projects and partnerships, and work on experimental platforms and test beds that can be
used to provide real-world validation of solutions.

Leti’s background in IoT and 5G systems, including spectrum management, radio access technologies
and protocols, as well as IoT open platforms for large-scale systems, will be a primary contribution,
along with its technological roadmaps. In addition to its expertise in IoT systems, III will provide access
to Taiwanese technology platforms, as well as industry-driven requirements and use cases.

“Our two organizations have very complementary skills and ecosystems, and it’s a pleasure to launch
our collaboration. Together we have an excellent opportunity to pilot and demonstrate innovative 5G
and IoT-related solutions that will be useful for industries and individuals in Taiwan and the EU,” said
Leti CEO Marie Semeria at the official signing ceremony in Taipei, held during a Leti workshop event

“Taiwan is currently supporting and promoting IoT and smart city. The service and platform that based
on IoT technology will be the key factor for industrial development. III and Leti’s collaboration will
significantly enhance our ability to pursue our mission of promoting industrial applications, R&D
technologies, and IoT infrastructures,” commented III Executive Vice President Pao-Chung Ho. “We
look forward to our information exchange and collaboration, and to building a creative and effective longterm research partnership between our teams.”
