Reasons for Study
To assist both developed and developing countries in the deployment of
IMT2000 systems, a handbook is needed. This handbook requires inputs and close
collaboration with ITU-D and ITU-R. A single handbook is proposed to be prepared
by the three sectors of the ITU. In its role as the lead Study Group on mobility
in ITU-T, the Special Study Group on "IMT-2000 and Beyond" shall
coordinate the activities across the T sector for the network aspects of this
Network aspects should be based on the existing IMT-2000 family members
identified under Q.3/SSG.
Cooperation with external bodies outside of the ITU, in particular the SDOs,
is required to gather any relevant information from these organizations and
avoid duplication of effort.
To coordinate and prepare the T sector input to a single handbook prepared by
the three sectors of the ITU, containing different aspects related to: e.g.
management, tariffs and technical matters.
The task objectives for this question are:
1) Coordinate T sector inputs to a handbook produced in cooperation with the
D and R sectors of the ITU. This shall include e.g. management and technical
aspects as prepared by the relevant Study Groups.
2) Prepare the technical inputs to the handbook, on the network aspect of
IMT2000 systems as identified by Q.3/SSG.
Expected completion: 4 q. 2002.
The development of these handbooks will require close coordination activities
- External organisations, particularly 3GPP and 3GPP2.
- All ITU-T Study Groups, in particular 3, 4, 7, 11, 13 & 16
- ITU-R Working Party 8D, 8F.
- ITU-D SG2
