5G-MAG collaborates with standardization organizations and industry fora working on technologies within the scope of its activities.
Depending on the type of collaboration, 5G-MAG can enter into formal liaison arrangements, for example to enable joint work on specific topics or sharing of non-public information and documents.
These are the organizations with which 5G-MAG has a working relationship.
THIRD GENERATION PARTNERSHIP PROJECT (3GPP)
5G-MAG is a 3GPP Market Representation Partner (MRP). As such ,5G-MAG has the ability to offer market advice to 3GPP and to bring a consensus view of market requirements (e.g. services, features, functionalities) within the scope of 3GPP.
The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) unites seven telecommunications standard development organizations (ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TSDSI, TTA, TTC), known as “Organizational Partners” and provides their members with a stable environment to produce the Reports and Specifications that define 3GPP technologies.
The project covers cellular telecommunications technologies, including radio access, core network and service capabilities, which provide a complete system description for mobile telecommunications. The 3GPP specifications also provide hooks for non-radio access to the core network, and for interworking with non-3GPP networks.
A formal liaison agreement between DVB and 5G-MAG was established to create a Joint Task Force (JTF) that will allow DVB and 5G-MAG members to move forward quickly with activities related to the combination of 5G systems with DVB solutions. This Joint Task Force between DVB and 5G-MAG sits OUTSIDE the governance structures and rules of both fora and operates according to the framework agreement.
The JTF elected two co-chairs, one from each forum, at its first meeting. The 5G-MAG co-chair for the JTF is Thomas Stockhammer (Qualcomm). The DVB co-chair is Frédéric Gabin (Dolby).
Founded in 1993, the DVB Project is an industry-led consortium of the world’s leading media and technology companies working together to design open technical specifications for digital media delivery. DVB Members collaborate through our working groups to develop specifications for digital television systems, which are turned into standards by international standards bodies, usually ETSI. Once specifications have become standards, they are promoted for international adoption and utilization.
