(Continuation of Question 3/19)
IMT-2000 has been the most important ITU initiative for last three study
periods, spanning all three sectors. Since evolving IMT (formerly IMT-2000)
systems are being standardized by a number of recognized SDOs through their
participation in Partnership project, Q3/19 has worked on facilitating the
recognition of those systems and their adoption by the broader ITU community. As
many as 10 Recommendations in the Q.174x series are now in force, with 2 more to
be published by the end of the 2005-2008 study period.
As the mobile systems evolve beyond the original requirements set for
IMT-2000 the SDOs will continue to deliver various releases of their respective
systems. The new ITU initiative on NGN and especially the FMC work will further
propel the evolution of common core networks. New recommendations will need to
be produced to identify those evolving IMT systems and beyond.
This Question shall be responsible for the Q.174x series of recommendations.
Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to:
- What architectures, detailed specifications and releases have been and
will be produced by recognised SDOs which make up the evolving IMT systems
- What enhancements to existing Recommendations are required to provide
energy savings directly or indirectly in Information and Communication
Technologies (ICTs) or in other industries? What enhancements to developing
or new Recommendations are required to provide such energy savings?
Tasks include, but are not limited to:
- Develop recommendations identifying the architecture as well as detailed
specifications of each release (version) of each evolving IMT family member
making reference to relevant specifications produced by the ITU-T recognised
- Recommendations shall be produced for the following evolving IMT family
- GSM evolved UMTS core network with UTRAN/GERAN access network,
- ANSI-41 evolved core network with cdma2000 access network.
