5G Standardisation for Industry Verticals

5G is bringing benefits to many industry verticals, spanning automotive, broadcasting and media, energy and utilities, healthcare, manufacturing, maritime, mining, public safety. It can also enable new applications through the integation of satellite and take rural connectivity to new places. 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.

An online collaboration tool for industry and standards specialists

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.

 

The 2nd 5G Vertical User Workshop (July 2019) explored a core set of common requirements across vertical industries to help drive collaborative efforts on standards work of mutual interest. Here are the main outcomes. 

MBMS stands for Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service. It is a point-to-multipoint interface specification for 3GPP cellular networks, designed to provide efficient delivery of broadcast and multicast services both within a cell and the core network.

The 2nd 5G Vertical user Workshop (July 2019) explored a set of common requirements across vertical industries with a view to pinpointing new areas of collaboration and interest groups. Here are the main outcomes for NR Multicast Broadband.

The main drivers for NR multicast broadcast from a vertical industry perspective are: 

5G is a key enabler towards autonomous driving. To resolve QoS limitations in today's mobile network (e.g. latency, data rate), 5GAA is investigating mechanisms and solutions for in-advance QoS change notification in (e) NESQO WI, such as Predicitve QoS.

Predictive QoS, e.g. along a specific route and/or in a specific timeframe (~minutes) allows to adjust the application level behaviour: 

The mapping of common requirements at the 2nd 5G Vertical User Workshop (July 2019) was a cross-vertical industry collaboration on defining URLLC (ultra reliable low latency communications) for the Industrial Internet of Things and relevant uses in other verticals.

Action points from the interactive discussions include 

Sidelink is a special kind of communication mechanism between device and device. 

The Mapping of Common Requirements at the 2nd 5G Vertical User Workshop (July 2019) brought together diverse vertical industries to identify areas of mutual interest around sidelink enhancements through 3GPP standardisation work. The main outcomes are:
