The current version of this Recommendation on IMT-2020 specifications (Recommendation ITU-R M.2150) contains 3 radio interface technologies: “3GPP 5G-SRIT”; “3GPP 5G-RIT” and “5Gi”. Those technologies are the basis for the implementation 5G networks around the world. After a period of 7-8 years of hard work across the industry, the evaluation of these 3 IMT-2020 technologies has culminated in an approval from ITU’s 193 Member States. It is the basis for the global implementation and deployment of 5G networks.
Two more radio interface proposals, submitted by ETSI (TC DECT) Forum and Nufront, have been granted an exceptional review within the IMT-2020 process extension. If, based on consideration of additional material, they successfully complete the evaluation process they will be included in a subsequent revision Recommendation ITU-R M.2150.
