Activity of Working Group (WG) Technology Aspects:

i) continue developing draft new Document IMT-2020/YYY “Input Submission Summary”;
ii) review technology submissions for IMT-2020;
iii) finalize and provisionally agree to the specific technology updates for draft Revision 14 of Rec. ITU-R M.1457 (without detailed transposition references);
iv) handle contributions on IMT-2020 evaluation, out of band emissions and other subjects.
During this meeting, WG Technology Aspects established four Sub-Working Groups:
– SWG Coordination (Acting Chair: Mr. Yong WU)
– SWG Evaluation (Co-Chair: Ms. Ying PENG)
– SWG IMT Specifications (Chair: Mr. Yoshinori ISHIKAWA)
– SWG Out of band emissions (Chair: Mr. Uwe LÖWENSTEIN)

IMT-2020 submission:

SWG Coordination reviewed the received initial descriptions related to the proposal of candidate IMT‑2020 radio interfaces from ETSI and DECT Forum, and TSDSI; the detailed technical characteristics will be further reviewed at next WP 5D meeting.

The updated information from 3GPP and China on their proposals were also reviewed.  Information on the status of this work has been included in two draft liaison statements to proponents (5D/TEMP/553) and IEGs (Independent Evaluation Groups) (5D/TEMP/554) respectively.

In addition, development of the acknowledgment, SWG Evaluation reviewed two contributions on informative technical materials for IMT-2020 evaluation simulation. It was identified that the “IMT-2020 submission and evaluation process” web page (see below for more) can be used to share this type of “informative material” to facilitate IMT-2020 evaluation.

3 thoughts on “IMT 2020 Status after ITU-R WP 5D meeting: 13-20 June 2018 Cancun, Mexico

  1. The following documents were agreed by ITU-R WP 5D WG Technology Aspects and are provided to WP 5D closing plenary for approval.
    5D/TEMP/550 Draft revision of Document IMT-2020/03 − Document “Submission received for proposals of candidate Radio Interface Technologies from proponent ‘3GPP’ under step 3 of the IMT-2020 process”
    5D/TEMP/551 Draft revision of Document IMT-2020/04 − Document “Submission received for proposals of candidate radio interface technologies from proponent ‘Korea’ under Step 3 of the IMT-2020 process”
    5D/TEMP/552 Draft revision of Document IMT-2020/05 − Document “Submission received for proposals of Candidate Radio Interface Technologies from proponent ‘China’ under step 3 of the IMT-2020 process”
    5D/TEMP/553 [Draft] Liaison Statement to IMT-2020 proponents − Confirmation of receipt of initial description templates and updated information related to proposals for the terrestrial components of the radio interface(s) for IMT-2020
    5D/TEMP/554 [Draft] LS to Registered Independent Evaluation Groups (Copy for information to Proponents ‘3GPP’, ‘Korea’, ‘ETSI’ and ‘TSDSI’)
    5D/TEMP/558 Draft new Document IMT-2020/6 − Document “Submission received for proposals of Candidate Radio Interface Technologies from Proponent ‘ETSI’ under step 3 of the IMT-2020 process” (to be Doc. IMT-2020/6)
    5D/TEMP/559 Draft new Document IMT-2020/7 − Document “Submission received for proposals of Candidate Radio Interface Technologies from Proponent ‘TSDSI’ under step 3 of the IMT-2020 process” (to be Document IMT-2020/7)
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Way forward on the relative processes responsible by SWG Evaluation:

    Before developing the detailed workplan and relative working documents, works from Step 4 to 7 in the IMT-2020/2(Rev.1) (Submission, evaluation process and consensus building for IMT-2020) were further clarified based on one input contribution (Document 5D/981 (China)) received in this meeting, and a way forward to clarify the relative processes responsible by SWG Evaluation with further clarification on relationship between process steps, deliverables and Record document of evaluation report submitted by IEGs.
    It addressed that WP 5D will monitor the progress of the evaluation activities, and provide appropriate response to problems or requests for guidance to facilitate consensus building in Step 5 so that the meeting identified that the “interim” evaluation report(s) is/are expected to be received from IEG(s) at WP 5D #33 meeting which is the meeting before the last scheduled meeting for evaluation report submission. The meeting had different views on whether the request of this “interim” evaluation report is proper to be mandatory or not to IEG, which will be further consulted with ITU-R SG 5 Counsellor, and the exact proper wording about it will be further discussed when the corresponding Circular letter and LS are developed in the next meeting.

    It was concluded during the meeting discussions that Document IMT-2020/ZZZ is created per IEG, which will be created for a specific IEG at WP 5D #34 upon its latest evaluation report(s) and finalized at WP 5D #34. The template of Document IMT-2020/ZZZ is currently planned to be completed at WP 5D meeting #32, which will be further reviewed according to the progress in the following meetings. Document structure of IMT-2020/k will be completed at WP 5D #31.

    Develop the detailed work plan for development of the Document IMT-2020/ZZZ (Evaluation reports summary)
    The meeting discussed and developed the detailed work plan of IMT-2020/ZZZ based on three carried forward contributions and two new input contributions, Documents 5D/982 (China, Japan, Korea), 5D/983 (China). Based on the above way forward, the detailed work plan of IMT-2020/ZZZ was compiled and developed in Document 5D/TEMP/573.
    The meeting discussed and developed the working document towards a template of IMT-2020/ZZZ based on two input contributions, Documents 5D/982 (China, Japan, Korea), 5D/983 (China). Based on the above way forward, the title, background, the section on use of information in Report ITU-R M.2412 and general structure of this template were discussed. The working document formed in this meeting is provided in Document 5D/TEMP/574.

    Discuss and develop the working document towards IMT-2020/k (Record of input materials from IEGs)
    The meeting discussed and developed the working document towards maintaining a history of Evaluation Report(s) from IEG based on one input contribution, Document 5D/983 (China). Based on the above way forward, the title of working document and document structure were discussed, and purpose and method to use this document were clarified. The working document formed in this meeting is provided in Document 5D/TEMP/575, which is planned to be completed in the next WP 5D meeting #31 venue TBD.
