3GPP-the 3rd Generation Partnership Project

Role of 3GPP?
3GPP prepares and maintains specifications for the

following technologies: GSM GPRS EDGE W-CDMA FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) TD-SCDMA TDD (Time Division Duplex)

3GPP Releases
Release '99 Functionally frozen December 1999. Defines UTRA and many other initial features The basis for early 3G deployment Release 4 Functionally frozen March 2001. Enhancements to Release '99 plus separation of control plane from user plan in core network First steps towards IP-based operation Also defines the low chip rate TDD mode (TD-SCDMA) Release 5 Functionally frozen March/June 2002. HSDPA - High Speed Downlink Packet Access IMS (IP Based Multi media Services). CN elements for IMS.

What is PCG and TSG ?

The Project Co-ordination Group (PCG) is responsible for overall time-

frame and management of technical work to ensure that the 3GPP specifications are produced in a timely manner as required by the market place according to the principles and rules contained in the Project reference documentation (Partnership Project Description, Partnership Project Agreement, Partnership Project Working Procedures). The technical specification development work within 3GPP is accomplished by Technical Specification Groups (TSGs). Each TSG has the responsibility to prepare, approve and maintain the specifications within its terms of reference, may organize their work in Working Groups and liaise with other groups as appropriate.

What is a CR?
Once frozen, no more functionality may be added to a specification. Only essential corrections are permitted. A CR is a document which specifies in precise detail changes which are proposed to the specification. It describes why a change is needed and summarizes how the change is made. Attached to this are the parts of the specification affected by the change, with the changes.

CR Procedure
Complete CR procedure is described in the TR 21.900
