BACKGROUND

General Packet Radio Service networks are becoming operational around the world.
The intent of this meeting is to focus on GPRS interoperability issues that affect
devices, platforms and applications. We plan to identify problems that could
hamper adoption of GPRS, and to develop recommendations that address
such problems.

In addition, the PCCA has developed GPRS objects for the Network Driver
Interface Specification (NDIS). The PCCA will present its work in this area.
