WORK & TOPICS

Member-driven Work

How we work

Our work is organized around member- and contribution-driven Work Items. Work Items describe the motivation of the work to be conducted and a concrete list of tasks, actions, expected outcomes and a timeline.

The tasks and actions are conducted in the Workgroups. The outcomes depend on the nature of the work and may include generating requirements, inputs to SDOs, coordination and consensus-buidling among members, analysis of specifications, architectures and systems, elaboration of profiles and guidelines, development of reference tools, validations and verifications of specifications, participation in demos and trials, liaisons and collaborative work with relevant organizations, etc.

INDUSTRY SURVEYS

Collecting information from the industry

WHERE TO GO FOR WORK ON USE CASES AND REQUIREMENTS

  • Work on use cases and requirements happens in WG UC (WORKGROUPS) under the relevant Work Items

  • Outcomes of the work may come in the form of Reports (RESOURCES) or inputs to industry organizations. For instance, 5G-MAG, in its role as 3GPP Market Representation Partner, has provided input to several workshops defining the scope of the next 3GPP Releases (RESOURCES)

  • Outcomes in the form of Reports are open to feedback from the industry. Learn how to provide feedback to Reports (FEEDBACK LOOPS) and use the relevant GitHub projects to do so (GitHub/Requests-for-Feedback)

WHERE TO GO FOR WORK ON SPECIFICATIONS, ARCHITECTURES, FEATURES

  • Work on specifications, architectures, features happens in the technical workgroups. Join WG CP and WG CD (WORKGROUPS).

  • Outcomes in the form of Profiles and Guidelines and Reports can be found at RESOURCES. Practical lists of specifications and reference guidelines can also be found in GitHub (GitHub/Standards)

  • Beyond the workgroups, feedback on specifications can be provided in GitHub. For this, follow the instructions in the FEEDBACK LOOPS and use GitHub/Standards to raise issues and provide feedback.

  • By means of the FEEDBACK LOOPS, 5G-MAG liaises with relevant SDOs or industry organizations to discuss the raises issues and resolve the problems found.

  • Outcomes in the form of Reports are open to feedback from the industry. Learn how to provide feedback to Reports (FEEDBACK LOOPS) and use the relevant GitHub projects to do so (GitHub/Requests-for-Feedback)

WHERE TO GO FOR WORK ON REFERENCE TOOLS

  • The 5G-MAG Reference Tools Development Programme is organized and coordinated under WG DEV (WORKGROUPS). However, the work on Reference Tools happens in an OPEN developer community, which both organizations and individuals can join.

  • A PUBLIC CALL is organized each last Friday of the month to reach a wider audience and get feedback beyond the 5G-MAG Community

  • All the relevant information can be found in the DEVELOPER SPACE. while the actual software and documentation is on GitHub (GitHub/Getting-Started).

  • As part of the 5G-MAG Reference Tools Development Programme, developers provide insight into specs towards development/implementation and how to use the reference tools, for instance, in demos and trials (ACADEMY).

  • While developing code, potential feedback to specifications (FEEDBACK LOOPS) is handled in GitHub (GitHub/Standards)

  • Communication between the developer community happens in the 5G-MAG Forum (Slack). Announcements on release candidates and new releases are made available through the Mailing List (Google Groups)

WHERE TO GO FOR WORK ON COMPREHENSIVE MATERIALS

  • Beyond the WORKGROUPS, where different materials available at RESOURCES are available (e.g. 5G-MAG Explainers), 5G-MAG also provides other resources under ACADEMY. These are the results of Workshops, invited speakers, videos elaborated by developers, etc.
