FG IMT-2020: Report on Standards Gap Analysis.
At its meeting in Geneva, 20 April - 1 May 2015, ITU-T Study Group 13 (SG13) established the ITU-T Focus Group on IMT-2020 (FG IMT-2020) to identify the standards gaps for the '5G' development of International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) for 2020 and beyond on the non-radio related network parts. At the recent SG13 meeting, the Focus Group delivered the requested gap analysis. It is based on the studies on several key technical topics related to the non-radio aspects of IMT-2020. It identifies and describes 85 gaps in five technical areas in the context of IMT-2020 networks: (1) High-level network architecture; (2) Network softwarization; (3) End-to-end quality of service; (4) Front haul / back haul; (5) Emerging networking technologies - ICN. The complete analysis for your consideration is in Annex 1. Furthermore we would like to inform you that SG13 has extended the lifetime of the focus group until 31 December 2016 with the new Terms of Reference shown in Annex 2.
