Standards Tracker - an online collaboration tool for verticals and standards specialists

5G is bringing benefits to a growing number of industry verticals, spanning automotive, broadcasting and media, energy and utilities, healthcare, manufacturing, maritime, mining, public safety, satellite and rural connectivity. Investments in 5G should go hand in hand with inputs to the standards development process to ensure end-user requirements are properly met and that the capabilities, interfaces, and performance characteristics they need are accounted for.

This may sound like a daunting task for many verticals with little or no experience of working with a community of telecom industry specialists. This is where this Standards Tracker comes into play as a collaboration platform helping to lower entry barriers for verticals. It is designed to help specialists from industry verticals navigate their way through the various and often complex processes and stages, define technical requirements and maximise impacts with the resources available to them. It also guides standards specialists in embracing newcomers to create a bigger and more diverse community with potentially high impacts through mutual support. 

Its focus for now is on 5G standardisation work within 3GPP as a leader in supporting vertical industries and the roles played by associations like the 5G Infrastructure Association, 5G Automotive Association, 5G Alliance for Connected Industry and Automation and Public Safety Communication Europe. As the 5G standards landscape continues to evolve, so will the tool.

How to use the tool and join in

  • Latest Updates: Track progress on 5G standardisation and industry verticals, including initiatives from leading vertical associations and activities in the 5G-IA Pre-Standardization WG. 
  • Events: Find the right event for your needs, including webinars on specfic industry verticals and/or on how to contribute to 3GPP. 
  • Practical Guides: Learn how to contribute to 3GPP with our practical tips from verticals and standards specialists, including support services especially designed for verticals.
  • 3GPP Working Groups: Get an understanding of the main activities in the various working groups of 3GPP.
  • Technical Requirements Tracking: Consult the technical view points across diverse vertical industries. Bring your own viewpoints. 
  • Common Requirement Mapping: See how many topics under 5G standardisation are relevant across a wide range of industry verticals. Bring your own contributions to this mapping exercise.
  • 3GPP Plenary Progress: Track on-going study and work items in 3GPP through our Plenary Debriefs, helping to pinpoint opportunities for contributions and/or support gap analysis. Much of this work is done by Hans van der Veen, NEC Europe on the RAN side Riccardo Trivisonno, Huawei (Germany) on the SA side, whom we thank for their valued inputs.

Meetings and Events

IoT Web Talk - Wednesday 1 July, 15:00 CEST, 14:00 BST, 09:00 EDT

C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything) is a set of technologies that enables vehicles to communicate with each other and other smart transport solution. While these benefits can already be achieved with secure and established 4G LTE network infrastructure, 5G will scale up the full potential of C-V2X. With this come societal benefits and business opportunities for the connected vehicle market.

Meetings and Events

On 9 April 2020, 3GPP hosted three mini webinars with its TSG Chairmen on progress towards Releases 16 and 17 during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Georg Mayer, TSG Chair for SA (services); Lionel Morand for CT (core networks and terminals) and Balazs Bertenyi for RAN (radio access network) zoomed in on the main updates on standardisation work in a truly global context since the start of the year when work was immediately taken online. 

Latest updates

This Debrief comes from the Chair of the 5G-IA Pre-Standardization WG: Riccardo Trivisonno, Huawei (Germany) as part of the group's efforts to track progress on 5G standardisation, support inputs from 5G PPP technical projects and help gap analyses for future standardisation work. 

This Debrief comes from a standards specialist in the 5G-IA Pre-Standardization WG: Hans van der Veen, NEC Lab Europe as part of the group's efforts to track progress on 5G standardisation, support inputs from 5G PPP technical projects and help gap analyses for future standardisation work. 

This is a summary of RAN#87e (March 2020). Because of the COVID-19 virus, the meeting was held as an email meeting only (more than 1100 emails). The agenda was restricted by excluding Rel-17 topics, except for a discussion on the Rel-17 timeline.

General

3GPP is the leading global initiative for 5G standardisation, spanning cellular telecommunications network technologies, including radio access, the core transport network, and service capabilities, including work on codecs, security, quality of service to provide complete system specifications. 3GPP is also recognised as a key intiative for industry verticals with mechanisms in place to lower entry barriers for newcomers, including mentoring services.

Meetings and Events

At the December 2019 3GPP Plenary in Sitges, three sector specialists joined TSG SA Chair, Georg Mayer, for a panel discussion on their first-hand experiences on 5G standardisation, looking at where we stand today and what further steps are needed to support industry verticals. The panellists were:
