We have heralded the arrival of standalone 5G in Rel-15, and we are now working towards completing the 5G vision in Rel-16.
-Details of the major milestone of freezing 5G standalone specifications.
-Rel-15 late drop to address essential market needs of migration to 5G
-Rel-16 work program: planned features to facilitate fulfilling the full 5G vision.
- Details of the 3GPP RAN work and RAN1 Terms of Reference
- Progress on LTE and 5G NR in 3GPP Release 15
- The latest status of the Release 16 Prioritization process
Wanshi Chen is currently the 3GPP TSG RAN1 Chairman, the working group responsible for physical layer over-the-air standardization.
He has over 18 years experiences in telecommunications in leading telecom companies including operators, infrastructure vendors, and user equipment vendors. From 2006, he has been with Qualcomm Corporate R&D contributing to system design, prototyping and implementation, and standardization of 4G LTE/LTE-Advanced and more recently 5G (New Radio or NR).
Georg Mayer will take a look at the next generation of core network - fit for 5G.
Topics covered will include:
- The 5G timeline
- 5G, an enabler platform for different Services
- The Software & Service Centric Transformation
- Transformation of the Core Network
- Network Slicing
- The Service Based Architecutre
This webinar will show the clear and systematic progress being made in 3GPP CT groups.
-Get the work done in 3GPP,
-Cover the major Releases and their features,
-Consider 5G prospects for CC in particular and other sectors in general.
Webinar: 13:00 CET, November 14
There will be time for Q&A afterwards.
Erik Guttman, a full time employee of Samsung Electronics, has been actively involved in standardization in networking and telecommunications for over 20 years. He currently serves as the 3GPP Service and System Aspects Technical Specification Group Chairman. Preceding this, he held the position of 3GPP System Architecture working group for two terms. He has also chaired and actively contributed to numerous IETF working groups including SVRLOC (Service Location Protocol) and ZEROCONF (Zero Configuration Networking). Erik's background includes leading research and software projects that introduced emerging network application and system functions to operating environments. Erik developed frameworks and tools for distributed installation and deployment. Erik served Chief Technical Officers as system architect and requirements researcher. Erik obtained a BA in Philosophy and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley and a MS in Computer Science from Stanford University.
The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) unites [Seven] telecommunications standard development organizations (ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TSDSI, TTA, TTC), known as “Organizational Partners” and provides their members with a stable environment to produce the Reports and Specifications that define 3GPP technologies.
The project covers cellular telecommunications network technologies, including radio access, the core transport network, and service capabilities - including work on codecs, security, quality of service - and thus provides complete system specifications. The specifications also provide hooks for non-radio access to the core network, and for interworking with Wi-Fi networks.
3GPP specifications and studies are contribution-driven, by member companies, in Working Groups and at the Technical Specification Group level.
The three Technical Specification Groups (TSG) in 3GPP are;
