DoT-TCOE India-TSDSI Workshop on “IMT2020 Status Updates” 20 Jan 2020 in New Delhi (20 January, 2020: New Delhi)
January 20, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
TSDSI RIT submission on IMT2020 has been accepted for evaluation as an IMT2020 Standard at the ITU WP-5D Meeting #33 in Geneva held during December 10-13, 2019. This submission will deliver, in addition to the ultra-fast, low-latency mobile internet and next-generation IoT services in both cellular and mm-wave spectral bands common to all 5G candidate standards, an additional technological enhancement that has the ability to provide broadband connectivity to rural users using ultra-long range cell sites. It will ensure 100% of India’s villages can be covered from towers located at panchayat villages where Bharatnet reaches, whereas nearly a third of such neighbouring villages would be out of coverage otherwise. It exploits a new transmit waveform that increases cell range developed by research institutions in India and supported by some Indian companies.
Independent Evaluation Groups, including TCOE India and 5GIF are in the process of evaluating the candidate IMT 2020 submissions. The upcoming WP 5D meeting #34 scheduled in Geneva on Feb 19-26, 2020, will discuss the evaluation reports of the RITs. It is important that as country we have common evaluation reports.
In order to bring about a common view, a workshop was organised by DoT along with TCOE India, TSDSI and COAI with support from all to share updates on the Evaluation activities, on 20 January 2020 in DoT, Sanchar Bhawan, New Delhi from 1430 to 1730 hrs.
