3GPP Partners propose IMT-Advanced radio technology

Press Release - 8th October 2009

The 3GPP Partners, which unite more than 370 leading mobile technology companies, made a formal submission to the ITU yesterday, proposing that LTE Release 10 & beyond (LTE-Advanced) be evaluated as a candidate for IMT-Advanced.

The ITU had set a deadline of 7 October for proposals to be received and 3GPP responded by submitting a comprehensive description of LTE-Advanced, an evolution of the LTE technology which has received considerable support from the world’s leading mobile operators. The submission was made jointly in the name of the 3GPP Organizational Partners: ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TTA and TTC, which represent the North American, European and Asian regions and make 3GPP a truly global initiative.


LTE Asia signals success for 3GPP

The success of 3GPP’s LTE standard was this week demonstrated by the large attendance and optimism at the LTE Asia Conference, held in Hong Kong.

Over 200 delegates discussed strategies and time-frames for the migration to LTE networks, with the discussion now about the “when”, rather than the “if”.

Delegates heard that half of the over 4 billion subscriptions for mobile will be Broadband by 2013, with the early majority on HSPA, TD-SCDMA and EV-DO networks and with a rising tide of LTE starting to appear as each of these technologies converge on the 3GPP standard.


ITU Telecom World 2009

The 3GPP Partners - all leading National and Regional Standards Organizations in Asia, North America and Europe - will be represented at the ITU's main show-case event in October 2009.

3GPP's 20 sq. metre demonstration booth will be in the main hall of the exhibition, at Stand 4360 (see plan), with experts from the Partner organizations and staff from the 3GPP Mobile Competence Centre (MCC) on hand.
