ITU Blog: Join us in visualizing the 5G ecosystem
The new ITU-T Focus Group on network aspects of IMT-2020 (‘5G’) will meet for the first time in San Diego, 8-9 June, to launch its analysis of how emerging 5G technologies will interact in future networks. We are looking for strong technical contributions to this analysis, whether they are models, simulation studies or any other tangible means of demonstrating the issues at play.
I gave my views on the 5G vision and the objectives of the new Focus Group in a recent ITU interview.
The Focus Group is open to participation by any interested party. We aim to gather a group of influential experts from service providers, vendors, standards communities and research institutes to work in collaboration, in view of the entire 5G ecosystem. This is our most important goal. With the right collection of experts, working in unison to analyze problems top-to-bottom, the Focus Group can guide the industry towards the cohesive model of behaviour required to build the 5G ecosystem.
