Geneva: The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on Thursday set up a vision for the development of 5G mobile, in a bid to provide lightning speed, omnipresent, ultra-reliable mobile communications in the short future.
The “IMT-2020” vision, endorsed by a resolution in ITU’s Radiocommunication Assembly, established overall “vision” for 5G systems, along with the goals, process and timeline for its development, is now in place, Xinhua reported.
The detailed technical performance requirements for the radio systems to support 5G will be developed, in close collaboration with industry and national and regional standards organizations, following the stringent timelines defined by ITU.
“The new ITU-R Resolution sets the stage for the future development of 5G mobile technologies,” said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao.
Mobile communication has seen revolutionary developments and growth in recent years. New demands, including applications requiring very high data rate communications, many more devices with diverse service requirements, will require an increasing number of innovative solutions.
