The main objective of this study is to gain insights into the complexities of the standard-setting process involving a latecomer country. Standards are identified into two categories: market (de facto) standards arising from market interactions and formal standards (de jure) arising from mandatory specifications by public authorities. The study focused on two research questions: (i) What are the different factors that influence the outcome (success or failure) of a proposed standard by a latecomer country? (ii) How does a latecomer country navigate between de facto standard and de jure standard? It analyzed two cases (WAPI - a failure and TD-SCDMA - a success) to examine the extent of government support for a standard-setting that needs to balance between the de facto standard and de jure standard. The study found that standard competition is a complicated interplay between technology, markets, politics and institutions. The experience of two cases suggest that a proposed standard should partly be a ‘de jure standard’ which aims to protect national interests and achieve a national goal, and partly embody the ‘de facto standard’ to meet the technology trend, market demand, as well as the end users’ welfare. The other factors found to influence the success or failure of a standard proposed by a latecomer country include: compatible and interoperable technology, the strength of opponents, industry alliance, and industry foundation.
The paper makes two major contributions: (i) it adds case studies from a latecomer country to the standard-setting literature; (ii) it contributes towards standard strategy plan in China as well as other latecomer developing countries.

Is there a means you can remove me from that service? Thank
Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine
if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be
one of the best in its niche. Wonderful blog!
Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
If you do not plan to purchase advertisements (and if you are considering
a system like Facebook, you'll likely should cover adverts to
achieve and grow your neighborhood) time, whether it is your own personal or that a member of
staff or consultant, will soon be required, on a continuous basis.
An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was
doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch
simply because I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this....
Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk
about this matter here on your site.
Just desire to say your article is as amazing. The clearness in your post is simply nice
and i could assume you're an expert on this subject.
Fine with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep
updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.
