TSDSI’s 5th Generation Radio Interface technology reaches final step to be notified as an IMT2020 standard by ITU

Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI)’s Radio Interface Technology (RIT) has qualified the step 7 of an 8 step process of ITU-R, thereby paving the way for its inclusion in the IMT-2020 specification of ITU-R as an independent technology for  mobile systems which are generally referred to as 5G, at the just concluded ITU-R WP5D meeting #35e.

As a penultimate  step, the description of the TSDSI technology has been included in the draft IMT-2020 specification document which is being developed and is expected to be finalised in the meetings of ITU-R WP5D to be held in October and November 2020.

TSDSI standard fulfils the requirements of affordable connectivity in rural, remote and sparsely populated areas. Enhanced cell coverage enabled by this standard, will be of great value in countries and regions that rely heavily on mobile technologies for connectivity but cannot afford dense deployment of base stations due to lack of deep fibre penetration,  poor economics and challenges of geographical terrain. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a UN body that is setting requirements for IMT 2020 (aka 5G), had earlier adopted the Low-Mobility-Large-Cell (LMLC) use case proposed by TSDSI as a mandatory 5G requirement in 2017.

India’s “5G” Technology (TSDSI-RIT) moves another Step Forward at ITU

Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI)’s Radio Interface Technology Proposal addressing the special requirements of affordable connectivity in Rural areas was accepted by ITU-R WP5D in Dec 2019 as a candidate technology for IMT-2020 evaluation. This technology is critical to the rapid deployment of IMT-2020 in rural and remote, sparsely populated areas. This proposal has satisfied all the qualifying criteria for the IMT-2020 Technical performance requirements at ITU in the recently concluded meeting of ITU-R WP5D held in Geneva in February 2020.  TSDSI RIT technology has the potential to make a significant impact in various countries that are confronted with challenges of providing broadband wireless coverage in rural, sparsely populated and security-wise vulnerable areas. More countries have joined in supporting TSDSI’s standard as it addresses their regional needs from a 5G standpoint.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an UN body that is setting requirements for IMT 2020 (aka 5G), had earlier adopted the so-called Low-Mobility-Large-Cell (LMLC) use case as a mandatory 5G requirement in 2017. This requirement was adopted by ITU mainly as a result of sustained effort by Indian Government (DOT) and TSDSI to address the unique Indian rural broadband deployment scenario.  This test case addresses the problem of rural coverage by mandating large cell sizes in a rural terrain and scattered areas in developing as well as developed countries. Several countries supported this as they saw a Show more
