The 5G Standard

3GPP - The place to be

We haven't done many videos since the start of the Covid pandemic, but today (January 19, 2023) we have just completed and posted our new 3GPP video, on the theme of 'Why is 3GPP important to you?'

We asked experts from our RAN1 working group that question, with a view to tying in their responses to some explanatory images about what 3GPP is all about and how we make standards.

RAN Chair - Wanshi Chen


In March 2021, the TSG RAN leadership elections concluded with the appointment of Wanshi Chen as Chair for the next two years. In this first interview with him, Wanshi outlines some of his priorities for the new term and provides updates on the latest status of Release 17 radio specifications and on TSG RAN’s thinking on the process that will lead to the agreement of the content of Release 18.

S Chitturi, 3GPP Working Group SA6 Chair (2019)

Following the modification of the group’s Terms of Reference (ToR) in 2017, 3GPP SA6 Working Group has gradually expanded its activities. While mission-critical applications are still very much central to the SA6 charter, fresh initiatives - since the beginning of Release 15 work - are paving the way for the standardization of new vertical applications within the 3GPP ecosystem, and also promoting the adoption of 3GPP 5G technology across a variety of industries.

Athens 2008 - 10 year charity run


Two highly successful charity runs were held in Athens, in 2008. This musical video is a tribute to the people who took part. The first week we were able to get access to the parkland near to the Acropolis. Unfortunately, the second week's event had to be re-scaled, as there was a bit of civil unrest in Athens, as student protests kept the police and other key workers much too busy to supervise our run. Instead, the second week's event took place in the two blocks close to the Intercontinental hotel - the venue for the TSGs that week.
