IMT-2020 submission and evaluation process

​​​​​​​​ITU-R has commenced the process of developing ITU-R Recommendations for the terrestrial components of the IMT-2020 radio interface(s).

This work is guided by Resolution ITU-R 65 (see Annex 1).

Resolution ITU-R 65 on the “Principles for the process of future development of IMT for 2020 and beyond” outlines the essential criteria and principles which will be used in the process of developing the Recommendations and Reports for IMT-2020, including Recommendation(s) for the radio interface specification.

Final decision on IMT-2020 technologies for Step 8

ITU-R has determined that the IMT-2020 candidate technology submission proposals listed below have successfully completed Step 7 and all preceding Steps, and thus are accepted for inclusion as IMT-2020 technologies in the standardization phase for IMT-2020 as described in Step 8. 

Candidate technology submissions accepted for Step 8 for first release of Recommendation ITU-R M.[IMT-2020.SPECS] : ​​​​
 IMT-2020 candidate technology submissions requiring additional evaluation​

ITU-R has determined that the IMT-2020 candidate technology submission proposals listed below will require additional evaluation to conclude their respective final assessments through Steps 6 and Step 7 of the current process. They will, therefore, on an exceptional basis continue in the process, rewinding to Step 4 in order to consider additional supplied material. Should each of these technology submissions individually and separately successfully navigate the rewind to Step 4 and the subsequent Steps 5 -8 of the current IMT-2020 process extension, they would consequentially be included in a timely revision to the published first release of Recommendation ITU-R M.[IMT-2020.SPECS]. ​ 

Candidate technology submissions granted an extension in the IMT-2020 Process :​ 
This process extension for these specific candidate technology submissions will not impact the schedule for the first release of Recommendation ITU-R M.[IMT-2020.SPECS] and the inclusion of the identified Proponent submissions identified in Section 2 above that will proceed into Step 8.​
