GENERAL INFORMATION AND SCOPE
5G-MAG would like to define the roadmap for the 5G-MAG Reference Tools development programme in 2023 in close contact with the industry and the community of developers.
Input is key to foster a market-oriented implementation of use cases and applications into the 5G-MAG Reference Tools.
Some initial 3GPP Rel-16 features are available, but roadmap planning for 2023 is now ongoing.
What we intend to do:
Provide an overview of media-centric 5G technologies and features in 3GPP Rel-16 & Rel-17
Drive the implementation of market-oriented use cases and applications into the 5G-MAG Reference Tools 2023 development roadmap by:
Creating use cases / scenarios that make use of the features and the reference tools expected to be implemented and showcased
Evaluating implementation efforts and prioritize use cases based on member support, interest and feasibility
Communicate the roadmap to the developer and public community.
How we want to proceed:
A series of calls (from June to September)
Request for new use-cases + open discussion on GitHub
Identification of features and potential development efforts
All the necessary steps to participate are explained below together with instructions to take part in the calls and the proposed homework.
METHODOLOGY, CALENDAR & CALLS
The proposed calendar:
CALL 1 - 17th JUNE 2022. 5G & Media, all what we need to know. Presentation of media-centric 5G technologies and features in 3GPP Rel-16 and Rel-17
CALL 2 - 8th JULY 2022. Development of use cases/scenarios (I)
CALL 3 - 22nd JULY 2022. Development of use cases/scenarios (II)
CALL 4 - 2nd SEPTEMBER 2022. Presentation to the development community and identification of interested members to support design and implementation
RECEIVED USE CASES
These are the use cases received during the Target 2023 activities.
JOIN THE DEVELOPMENT
Our colleague Richard Bradbury has prepared an Excel sheet to collect the 5G-related features in 3GPP Rel-17 relevant to the use cases.
You can download a clean Excel sheet template which allows to indicate:
- Technology features requested by each use case
- Development resources pledges, for companies or individuals that would like to contribute to the implementation with development resources
Fill it in and send it back to us at email@example.com
If you are ready to join the development, please have a look at the 5G-MAG Reference Tools Development Programme.
A summary of the information received so far is shown below.
