3GPP Eco-SystemThe 3GPP Organizational Partners (OP) are the sevenStandards Developing Organizations (SDOs) - fromChina, Europe, India, Japan, Korea and the UnitedStates.Standards bodiesMarket RepresentationPartners (MRPs)Participation in 3GPP is made possible by companiesand organizations becoming Individual Members (IM)of one of the OPs.OrganizationalPartners (OPs)Specific inputs, in the form of market requirementsmay also come in to the Project via any of the twentyMarket Representation Partners (MRP) in 3GPP. Theseorganizations have all signed up to the 3GPP Projectscope and objectives.Lots of external cooperation with other standardsbodies and a broad variety of other groups, by way offormal Liaisons.5G ProjectsCertificationFormal Liaisons450 MHz AllianceAISGBluetoothBroadband Forum (BBF)CableLabsInternational Special Committee on Radio Interference(CISPR)CTIADigital Video Broadcasting (DVB) ProjectEcma InternationalExpert Group for Emergency Access (EGEA)EurescomCOST 273European Radiocommunications Committee (ERC)Fixed Mobile Convergence Alliance (FMCA)Global Certification Forum (GCF)Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTD)GPS Industry CouncilGSM AssociationHomeRF ForumIDB ForumIEEEInternet Engineering Task Force (IETF)IrDAInternational Multimedia TelecomunicationsConsortium (IMTC)Internet Streaming Media AllianceISO-ITU expert groupISO MPEG / JPEGITU-T SG2JAIN tm (Javatm APIs for Integrated Networks)The Java Community Process (JCP)Liberty Alliance ProjectLTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI)Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF)NENANGMN (Next Generation Mobile Networks)oneM2MOMA (Open Mobile Alliance )Open Networking Foundation (ONF)Open IPTV ForumObject Management Group (OMG)PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB)Portable Computer and CommunicationsAssociation (PCCA)Presence and Availability Management (PAM) ForumRSA LaboratoriesSDR ForumSun Micro Systems IncSteercoSyncML InitiativeTrusted Computing Group (TCG)TeleManagement Forum (TMF)TCCATIA /TR45TIA/TR47TV-anytime ForumVoice eXtensible Mark-up Language (VXML) ForumWi-Fi AllianceWireless Broadband Alliance (WBA)WLAN Smart Card ConsortiumWireless World Research Forum (WWRF)World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#844

3GPP – How It Works3GPP works based on362 Companies actively participate in the 3GPP work Participation in face-to-face meetingsPro-activity & Contributions – you need writtenproposals to get attentionConsenus – nobody says “no” in order to progress From all over the worldAll major telecommunication companies – operators, network/device/chipsetvendorsMore and more vertical industry representatives bring their work directly to 3GPPWork organizationAmazing Track Record Study Items, Work ItemsReleases with fixed time-lines, which are partiallyoverlappingWork Plan (good overview)3 stages, often overlapping Stage 1: RequirementsStage 2: ArchitectureStage 3: Protocols3GPP started 1998, since then all major standards projects were deployede.g. 3G/UMTS, 4G/LTE, VoLTE/IMS, NB-IoTSeamless migration from “old” to “new” technology generationsA new Release every 15 to 24 months Allows for resonably fast standardization & deployment of new ideasStrong comittment to time-lines gurantees reliable planning and time-to-marketNew technologies get easily introduced (IP, IoT, AI .) 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#845

Possible 3GPP ImprovementsSupport of Newcomers in all Working Groups(Mentoring, Intro Session, Intro Material)Liaisons Persons to MRP meetingsMuch better overview on where relevant vertical worktakes placeMore transparent processesBetter understanding of what are the long-termexpectations of specific MRPs.Soften impact of 3GPP Release and Vertical “Product”cycles 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8430

Resources3GPP is based on Written input contributionsFace-2-Face meetingsConsensus – you need to actively convince other partiesWork spawning over several groups in parallelVerticals need to make sure to send delegates to all groups in which their topics are handled provide long-term participants in these groups support other players in their work in order to more acceptance in community 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8431

Step-Wise Approach3GPP is based on Releases, usually between 12 and 24 month long Iterative approach – a topic can spawn over several releases Work Items – usually on stage 2 / 3only covering a technical sub-areaVerticals need to make sure to align their views in a way that they requirements are met per release to plan their requirements so that they can be processed in different WIs to move parts of their work into more general WIDs (e.g. URLLC) 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8432

Common Solutions“Sidelink”AutomotiveDevice to DevicePublic SafetyMulti-Hop Relayse.g. Smart HomeAV-DistributionBroadcastersDifferent vertical industries need to coordinate to get common solutions(on a very technical level) 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8433

Organize & CooperateIdentify & contribute common requirementsWork on common technical solutions (also with other players)Early communication on SIDs/WIDs/CRsPropose improvements to support vertical work in 3GPPEconomy of scale 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8434

Summary & Next StepsVerticals have worked successfully in Rel-16, -15 and earlierRel-17 content will be fixed during next months – only small adjustments arestill possiblePlan new ideas for Rel-18Key steps for verticals / MRPS Coordinate amongst each other & with other playersProvide necessary resourcesPropose new (gradual) improvementsLet us tackle open issues together 3GPP TSG#84How to gain more awareness of vertical views on all levels of 3GPP?How to reflect better vertical industries product cycles and approaches? 3GPP 201935

Tasks/Questions for thend2Vertical WS1.Identify concrete targets and set clear actions for the way forward.2.Is there anything still needed from Rel-17?If yes: clear contribution & action plan how to get this in3.How to organize vertical work on Rel-18?How to identify common requirements and (more critical) common technical solutions?4.How do verticals want to communicate their long-term plans to 3GPP?5.How can verticals work together to make “their case” more attractive to other players in 3GPPand the industry? 3GPP 20193GPP TSG#8436
