Brussels, October 24/25, 2018: 3GPP will hold a Workshop aimed at informing the ITU sanctioned Evaluation Groups, policy makers and interested experts on the progress of the 3GPP work to meet and exceed the performance requirements for IMT-2020 radio interface technologies. The Workshop will be hosted by The European Commission, in Brussels.
This event is in addition to the evaluation material being sent to the ITU, using the IMT-2020 ‘submission templates’ detailing the service, spectrum and technical performance results achieved by 3GPP Radio Interface Technologies (RITs) or Set of Radio Interface Technologies (SRITs).
The presentations at the Workshop will cover the detail of these formal submissions, breaking down their key elements to help the evaluation groups study the technical merits of the 3GPP proposal (encompassing NR and LTE) and its ability to meet the IMT-2020 objectives.
Balazs Bertenyi, Chairman of 3GPP RAN, has described this Workshop on IMT2020 evaluation as a vital step in the evaluation process. He said:
“3GPP has been working extremely hard to bring 5G NR standards to the industry in an accelerated manner, in Release 15. 3GPP has now approved the work program for Release 16 - containing a host of new and enhanced functionalities for 5G NR. The target completion for Release 16 is December 2019. The 3GPP submission to IMT2020 will contain both Release 15 and Release 16 functionality.”
