ITU publishes new specifications radio interface technology - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The United Nations agency entrusted with coordinating radio-frequency spectrum worldwide, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has  published the specifications for the new technology as Recommendation ITU-R M.2150-1, reports ITREALMS.
The technology is designed to provide a slim but strong technical foundation for wireless applications deployed in a range of use cases, from cordless telephony to audio streaming, and from professional audio applications to the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications, such as building automation and monitoring.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) laid the essential groundwork jointly with the DECT Forum, a worldwide association of the digital enhanced cordless telecommunications (DECT) or wireless technology industry.

ITU's Radiocommunication Director, Mario Maniewicz, said: “The highly collaborative process involves substantial input from and coordination with the ITU Member States, equipment manufacturers, network operators, standards development organizations, and the academic community. ITU provides a unique global framework to discuss the capabilities of new radio technologies."

Andreas Zipp, Chairman of the DECT Forum, welcomed the addition of the new technology to IMT-2020. “Inclusion as part of ITU's global 5G standards affirms the significance of this technology moving forward," he said.

Other candidate radio interface technologies underwent the international mobile telecommunication (IMT) evaluation process over the past year, although only one qualified to be added at this stage.

The revised IMT-2020 recommendation now includes the new standard, which European standards developers recognized could support 5G uptake everywhere.

“The ETSI DECT standard received IMT-2000 approval more than twenty years ago," noted ETSI's Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Scrase. “5G therefore presented an ideal opportunity to develop this new, non-cellular, radio standard, which is particularly suited for smart meters, Industry 4.0, building management systems, logistics and smart cities."

Based on the requirements set out in ITU's evaluation process, the radio interface technology demonstrates worldwide compatibility in terms of operation, equipment, and roaming. It also addresses the ultra-reliable low latency (URLLC) capability stipulated by IMT-2020 – the underlying global coordination framework for so-called 5G services.
