GSA, Macau school reach training deal

The Gaming Standards Association has signed a memo of understanding with the Macao Polytechnic Institute, under which the school will provide continuing education related to the very latest gaming technology and open communication standards.

    Under terms of the agreement, MPI will act as GSA’s office in Asia, establishing a location for GSA on the continent. Additionally, GSA will support MPI in an effort to spread the technical knowledge of GSA’s gaming protocol standards to students in Macau and other parts of Asia through MPI.

    “This is a major step forward for GSA,” said Peter DeRaedt, the organization’s president. “The industry is keenly aware of the expansion of gaming in Macau and the future development that is to come to Asia. We are very pleased to be at the forefront of that growth, laying the groundwork for what will be an intense adoption and implementation of GSA standards.”

    “The partnership between MPI and GSA, which aims at fostering the adoption and implementation of open industrial standards in Macau, will certainly create benefits for manufacturers, operators and other stakeholders in the gaming industry,” added MPI President Lei Heong Lok. “Fulfilling the promise of seamless communication and interoperability, robust and long-lasting open standards can be a solution for greater revenue and decreased costs.”
