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.
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.
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:
5GAA (5G Automotive Association) has developed the concept of predictive Quality of Service (QoS), a mechanism enabling mobile networks to provide early notifications about predicted QoS changes to interested consumers, such as the V2X application in the vehicle.
