Apa Lee MTK
Wu Guocheng Datang

2017

Objective

Study the networking strategy for typical scenarios of eMBB at the spectrum which is below 6GHz, and define the intial version of specifications for 5G pre-commercial products with the help of PoC-based validatation

Work plan

Q1

The determined key technical solutions (e.g., numerology and new frame structure, mMIMO, new waveform, new multiple access, new modulation&coding, flexible duplex, user-centric networking, ultra dense networking, etc), based on closely tracking the progress of 3GPP new WIs about networking strategy;
The enhacement of solutions, based on analyzing the technical challenges

Q2

Q3

The well-defined deployment scenerios and use cases

Q4

The intial version of specifications for 5G pre-commercial products, based on referring to the results of PoC-based validatation

2018

Objective

Update and improve the specifications for 5G pre-commercial products at the spectrum which is below 6GHz, to instruct the development of pre-commercial products

Work plan

Q1

The updated specifications for 5G pre-commercial products, based on referring to 3GPP R15 specifications

Q2

Q3

The further improved specifications for 5G pre-commercial products, based on summarizing the challenges encounterd during the development of pre-commercial products

Q4

2019

Objective

Finalize the commercial deployment strategy and define the specifications for 5G commercial products at the spectrum which is below 6GHz, based on the results of various testing in the well-built 5G pre-commercial network (including performance test, multi‐vendor inter‐operation test, the test for service continuity between 4G/5G, etc.) and based on referring to 3GPP R16 specifications
