Kwame will now lead the studies on Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) of telecommunications terminals, networks and services. The WTSA also expanded the mandate of the Study Group to be the lead study on driver distraction and voice aspects of car communications.
Kwame takes up the challenge of leading the standardization on the planning and operations aspects of telecom which would offer better service quality and user experience. Also, he will count on his experts to develop standards which when implemented could influence the reversal on the ban of voice communications when driving.
