3GPP MRPs Promote Market Requirements to Drive 3G Standards

Sophia Antipolis, 21st January 2000: The 3GPP Market Representation Partners (MRP) presented key market driven contributions to the 3GPP Organizational Partner (OP) and Program Coordination Group (PCG) meetings in Sophia Antipolis held January 18-19. The proposals represent common global market requirements for 3G technical standards collectively from the GSA, GSM Association, UMTS Forum, and UWCC.

Consistent with the MRP contributions, the following key results were achieved:

  • The time schedule for delivery of the 3G Release 99 and Release 2000 was confirmed at the meeting, consistent with current market plans and licensing requirements globally.
  • All-IP solutions remain a high priority, and 3GPP is encouraged to further strengthen its links with the global IP community. A key step was the welcoming of the IPv6 Forum as an MRP.
  • Terminal certification and global circulation are important issues for the success of 3G. The MRPs will contribute with market requirements as an input to the July 2000 3GPP OP/PCG meetings.
  • The 3GPP agreed to study the possibility to move EDGE/GPRS related work items from ETSI/SMG to 3GPP. This will be based on the feasibility study to be completed April 1 by the newly established Ad Hoc Group on transition of EDGE/GPRS programs.
