Open Request: Technical help for article List of UMTS networks
Hi everybody. I've just started to improve List of UMTS networks by introducing a new table formatting and would be happy to have some help with this. There are already many entries in the list, compared to when I started introducing a new formatting for the LTE network list(s) List of LTE networks as well as List of CDMA2000 networks. I have been maintaining these for quite a while now. Even that seemed to have taken ages when I look back at it, but I believe it was a good thing to do.
Looking at List of UMTS networks: Is there anybody out there interested in helping me here? If this it not what you see yourself in - do you know anybody else who might be interested? Please take a look at the page and give me a short feedback on Talk:List of UMTS networks. Thanks. :-) Nightwalker-87 (talk) 22:16, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Request to expand and improve the CTIA – The Wireless Association article
Hello, WikiProject Telecommunications members. Over the past few months, I've been working on a proposed draft for the CTIA – The Wireless Association article to expand on information about the organization's history, leadership, advocacy efforts, and other activities. I'm hoping to find a neutral editor who can review and copy over the proposed draft appropriately. You can read more details at this edit request on the article's talk page. Thanks for your consideration. Inkian Jason (talk) 19:33, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Anyone have a working RIPterm?
I found a library of public RIPscript samples, and I would like to use one of them to add some flavour to the Remote Imaging Protocol article. Does anyone out there have a working version of a RIP-capable terminal that could render them for us? Maury Markowitz (talk) 14:10, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
radio/TV transmitters and towers
I find that the radio/TV generators (transmitters) and their towers/masts are usually discussed in the same article. But I find the articles are variously categorized into Category:Radio masts and towers, Category:Communication towers and Category:Broadcast transmitters and their subcategories with neither rhyme nor reason and no explanation. What might be a good categorization structure to pursue here and why? Hmains (talk) 01:56, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Huawei Honor 8 Pro
Over the past few weeks, I've been working with Honor to propose some improvements to the Huawei Honor 8 Pro article. I've submitted an edit request with a suggested infobox and "Specifications" section. I'm looking for a neutral editor to review this simple edit request, which can be found on the article's talk page (I won't edit the article directly because of my COI), and I'm hoping a WikiProject Telecommunications participant may be willing to help. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 15:48, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
- This edit request has been answered, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 21:52, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Notability for electronic devices (including mobiles)
Since almost a month now, I have been having discussions about a notability guideline for electronic devices, which resulted in an essay.
Recently, the situation that I was describing came in effect, when an editor created 16 articles for cameras, all of which are being considered for deletion 3 PRoD, and 13 AfD.
The essay is almost finished, but I would like more opinions/suggestions on it. Maybe it will not become an official guideline/policy, but I think it should be treated at the least as an essay. The essay is currently in userspace, if consensus is achieved theb it can be moved in mainspace.
I have posted this same request to a few other talkpages of related WikiProjects, so I request all the editors to put their comments on the talkpage of the essay to keep everything in one place. Here is the essay: User:Usernamekiran/Notability (electronic devices).
Thanks a lot in advance. —usernamekiran(talk) 20:21, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Mobile Signature article edit
Hello, WikiProject Telecommunications members. I have been working on an overhaul of the Mobile Signature article in order to position its terminology more accurately, expand on related information, simplify the language and update outdated information and decrepit sources. I would like to present my draft to a neutral editor for review. The draft would split the old article into three distinct articles and move the original article's information under more appropriate topics.
Here is the draft I propose be copied over the old article. The section "MoSign project and standardization attempt" was not and couldn't be properly sourced, which is why it is removed from the draft. The information in the section "Mobile Signature with On Board Key Generation" is more closely related to Mobile Signature Service, which I have drafted into its own article here. The content of the section "Mobile signatures today" is more closely related to Mobile Identity as it discusses some forms of authentication adjacent to mobile signatures. I have drafted that too into its own article here.
COI Disclosure: I am a technical writer for Methics (an MSS solution manufacturer), and I am paid to write and edit these articles.
- I have removed the "MoSign project and standardization attempt" section from Mobile signature. I could not find any references for this information either. I'm not convinced we need separate Mobile signature and Mobile identity articles and what you're proposing here is a bit more than a simple WP:SPLIT. Your Draft:Mobile Signature Service needs a little bit of work before it can be accepted. I've left a comment for you on that. ~Kvng (talk) 14:31, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Could someone have a look at this one-sentence stub and tell me if it can be merged or redirected elsewhere? I know next to nothing about telecommunications and haven't the faintest idea what would be appropriate, if anything. It doesn't help that the similarly-named border gateway protocol has far more GHits. (Are they the same?) Or if it's unnecessary I could PROD it. Either way I'll take care of the work if someone points me in the right direction. Cheers! ♠PMC♠ (talk) 07:42, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
