Changing 3GPP to help the verticals

February 25, 2020

Our latest video, recorded at TSG#86 in Sitges, December 2019, brings together:

Joachim Walewski, Siemens - Roland Beutler, EBU - Nicolas Chuberre, Thales Alenia Space and Georg Mayer, 3GPP SA Chair.

They discuss the reasons why their sector is in 3GPP and how they feel it is going. There are some frank views on the difficulties encountered and the frustrations that still persist, but there are also some clues on how new verticals don't have to start from scratch and how the project is making attempts to learn from the experience of adapting to the needs of the verticals.

Farewell to a friend

February 20, 2020 (updated Feb. 25)

Ian Doig passed away on Wednesday 19th February, after a short illness.

He will be missed. When he retired at the end of 2019, everyone who visits the ETSI offices might still have expected to occasionally hear his laugh on the forecourt and to be able to pass the time of day with him. Now, we won’t have that.

Ian’s dedication to the work was legendary. From the days as the ETSI link man to Project Team 12 experts and the ETSI Technical Officer supporting TC SMG, to his career as a 3GPP and ETSI delegate on behalf of Motorola and then Blackberry – Ian was on top of things, always leading from the back row of the meeting room, his favoured seat.


3GPP work taken on-line for Q1

February 11, 2020

In the light of the current Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, 3GPP has reluctantly decided to cancel all face to face TSG and WG meetings in Q1 2020.

Where practical, the meetings are being replaced with electronic meetings, the details of which are posted on the 3GPP meeting calendar - on this web site - and on the 3GPP portal; https://portal.3gpp.org 

Meetings in Q2, originally scheduled to be held in China, are now being relocated to other locations - as a precautionary measure. As the situation develops and as we hopefully start to get better news on the end of the coronavirus outbreak, we will publish updates to this page.

Meanwhile, 3GPP would like to express our collective best wishes to everyone affected by this virus and the illness related to it. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
