Not going to Barcelona

Story update February 13, 2020

Yesterday, MWC 2020 yielded to the increasing concerns over the coronavirus and the impact that going ahead with the event could have. In a statement the Association said: "GSMA has cancelled MWC Barcelona 2020 because the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other circumstances, make it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event."

3GPP Conference address to Russian Industry

June 13, 2019

At the impressively named ‘Wireless Russia & CIS: LTE, 5G and Internet of things’ conference, in Moscow, the 3GPP RAN3 Vice-Chair Sasha Sirotkin has presented the latest progress of our work to an audience of over 200 delegates, including representatives form Russian and International telecommunication service providers, developers of digital solutions, Regulators, Industry Associations, Research agencies and the press.

Sasha Sirotkin’s presentation covered: 3GPP structure and mission, 3GPP 5G vision, Release-15 (“the advent of 5G”), Release-16 (“towards the full 5G vision”), IMT-2020 submission and Release-17 outlook.


Erik Guttman’s address to ITU RRS 19 Africa

May 2019

(Minor edits made to text, for web publication)

It is a privilege to speak to you today. Until mid-March, I served as chairman of 3GPP TSG SA, the elected official responsible for coordination within the 3GPP project and with external organizations. I had the privilege to take leading roles in the development of Internet standards in the 90s and in work on telecommunications standards over the past 20 years. I will outline the realization of telecommunication standards in the 5G Program, which will be the submission provided for IMT-2020. This is an extensive subject which I can only treat briefly.

Organizations participate in 3GPP through their membership in one of the partner standards developing organizations (SDOs). Activity is 'contribution driven' meaning that any member may submit any proposal. Members have a strong incentive to find common purpose. I will return at the end of this speech to discuss how 3GPP embraces new stakeholders as part of the IMT-2020 realization, which we call 5G.

20 years ago, telecommunications standardization occurred largely within these organizations separately, resulting in distinct systems. The GSM system, now referred to as 2G, was quite successful. It provided a set of teleservices - voice, messages and some data transmission capability. Third generation mobile telecommunication standards were developed jointly, as a partnership of these SDOs, continuing on the basis of the work done [on GSM] by ETSI. The result of their work became a submission to the ITU IMT-2000 family of standards. The vision of 3G was to bring the Internet to mobile users. Eventually, 3G did fulfil this objective, but not with standardized teleservices.


Disaster Management & PS Event - Melbourne

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - at the CDMPS - Melbourne University

(Source: Criticalcomms.com.au)

The final agenda for this month’s important 3GPP/University of Melbourne mission-critical communications briefing has been released.

A joint initiative between 3GPP and the university’s Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS), the event will give Australian policymakers, academics and industry representatives the opportunity to meet and deliberate on communications matters.

Several leaders from the 3GPP will be present to discuss the future direction of mission-critical communications standards, including the impact of 5G.

Supporting the Mobile World Congress

November 14, 2017

  • We are proud to announce that 3GPP will again be an Association Partner to the GSMA Mobile World Congress in 2018.

At least five of the current leaders in 3GPP - Including all three TSG Chairmen - will be attending meetings and interviews during the week. We are also very confident that we will again have a 3GPP speaker in the Congress itself. More will follow on that once the programme is announced. 

If you will be at MWC and would like to meet with the technical and organizational representitives of 3GPP, please get in contact and I will arrange a meeting.
