5G Standardization Status in 3GPP
As the radio interface of mobile phones has evolved, it has typically been changed about every ten years, and the 5G (5th Generation) interface is expected to start being used in the 2020s.
Similar to 3G and 4G cases, ITU-R (International Telecommunication Union – Radio communication Study Groups) will request standard organizations to standardize a new interface based on their recommendations for performance and capabilities. After evaluation of each submission, the standards that succeed will be authorized and known as IMT-2020. For the 3G case, WCDMA submitted by 3GPP (the 3rd Generation Partnership Project) and CDMA-2000 by 3GPP2 were authorized as IMT-2000, and for the 4G case, LTE-A (Long Term Evolution-Advanced) by 3GPP and WiMAX-Advanced by WiMAX Alliance were authorized as IMT-Advanced.
This 11 page white paper explains the vision of 5G proposed by ITU-R, aspects of 5G technologies and the activity of 3GPP in the past and the way forward in the future.
