The Roadmap to 5G.
Special Issue on 3GPP 5G Standardisation. With contribution from GSA and GSA Member Companies.
Every decade, telecommunications standards developers aspire to a new generation. Member companies in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) identify and work towards an expansion of the telecommunication industry. Collectively, 3GPP* takes on the task, drawing on the aspirations and insights of individual experts, member companies, partner Standard Developing Orga- nizations (SDOs) and external organizations. The formal focus of this activity is the ITU-R IMT program. With IMT-2020, IMT-Advanced and now IMT- 2020, a vision and expression of the aspiration of the coming generation is established. The IMT goals are both commercial and more general; as telecommunications have become central to social and cultural development across the world. These programs establish criteria for the radio network which are met by qualifying submissions. 3GPP’s 3rd generation was accepted for IMT-2000, and 4th generation for IMT-Advanced. 3GPP is hard at work now developing standards that will be submitted for the IMT-2020 program. The context and aspiration for 5G are well described in “Outlining the Roadmap to 5G” in this issue.
