3gpp organization
3GPP Organization

The 3GPP structure is unchanged since its creation.

3GPP comprises of:

  • Organizational Partners (OPs) (or SDOs)
  • Market Representation Partners (MRPs)
  • Individual Members (companies)
  • Observers

A new category of “Guest” has been created for companies who seek temporary participation rights, or who emanate from a region having no Organizational Partner.

3GPP is open to all national/regional Standards Development Organizations irrespective of their geographical location (Organizational Partners). The following are the current OPs in 3GPP:

Organizational Partners

The Organizational Partner have met twice since the project began.

Discussion takes place electronically between meetings.

The OP meetings have no elected officials.

The chairmanship is the responsibility of the meeting host.

Delegations from the OPs have a nominated Head.

Karl Heinz Rosenbrock heads the ETSI delegation.

3GPP is open to all organizations that can offer market advice and a consensus view of market requirements (Market Representation Partners). The following are the current MRPs in 3GPP:

Market Representation Partners

The Market Representation Partners do not hold formal meetings.

They do hold informal meetings to co-ordinate their views.

Interest has been shown by further potential MRPs


Observers are Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) who have the qualifications to become future Organizational Partners.

3GPP currently has two Observers:

  • Telecommunications Industries Association (TIA)
  • Telecommunications Standards Advisory Council of Canada (TSACC)
project co ordination group
Project Co-ordination Group

The Project Co-ordination Group (PCG) has met three times since the project began.

Discussion takes place electronically between meetings.

ETSI has three representatives in PCG:

  • Phil Davidson (Board Member, BT)
  • Eric Ljungberg (Board Member, Telia)
  • Karl Heinz Rosenbrock

Karl Heinz Rosenbrock has completed one year as PCG Chairman and has been re-elected to serve another one year term of office.

Asok Chatterjee (T1) and Akio Sasaki (ARIB) are PCG Vice Chairmen.

Technical Specifications

Technical Specification Groups
technical specification groups1
Technical Specification Groups

The TSGs meet in series/parallel (TSGs CN, RAN, T in parallel followed by TSG SA). They will now meet four times per year in March, June, September and December.

They have the authority to approve their own specifications.

TSG SA undertakes a co-ordination role across all TSGs.

Technical Specification Groups

The TSGs have met seven times since 3GPP was created:

TSG#1 Sophia Antipolis (Dec 98) France (ETSI)

TSG#2 Ft Lauderdale (Mar 99) US (T1)

TSG#3 Yokohama (Apr 99) Japan (ARIB/TTC)

TSG#4 Miami (June 99) US (T1)

TSG#5 Kyongju (Oct 99) South Korea (TTA)

TSG#6 Nice (Dec 99) France (ETSI)

TSG#7 Madrid (Mar 00) Spain (ETSI)

  • TSG#4 (370)
  • TSG#5 (487)
  • TSG#6 (581)

tsg leadership positions
TSG Leadership Positions

TSGs elect their own officials which are endorsed by the PCG.

This two step process prevents any unacceptable imbalance.

TSG Chairmen and Vice Chairmen are appointed for a two year term of office.

The latest leadership positions are given in the following table.

relationship with itu and imt2000










UWC 136







Relationship with ITU and IMT2000

The 5 IMT 2000 interfaces agreed by ITU-R (terrestrial only)

relationship between 3gpp and 3gpp2
Relationship between 3GPP and 3GPP2

3GPP and 3GPP2:

  • were created consciously, not by accident
  • share common Partners
  • have very similar structures
  • have very similar working procedures
  • have held joint workshops to ensure global roaming and interoperability
  • share common security mechanisms
  • exchange information freely
3gpp funding
3GPP Funding

Agreement now reached between all OPs for year 2000 funding.

OPs will contribute according to an agreed formula. Half of the budget will be found by equal division among the OPs, the other half will be found in proportion to the number of Individual Members. Contribution may be by financial or human resources.

Budget requirement for 3GPP support in 2000 = 4720 kEuro

Budget requirement for MCC 3G Task Forces = 963 kEuro

Figures include accommodation and infrastructure costs, traditionally included elsewhere in the ETSI budget sheet.

3gpp progress in 1999
3GPP progress in 1999

3GPP is only one year old, but has already:

  • defined a 3G system “Release ‘99”
  • drafted 308 Technical Specifications and Reports
  • 240 of those have already been transposed by ETSI
  • agreed a mechanism of Quarterly updates for Release ‘99

Outstanding issues for Release ‘99 catalogued

Exact status always available in 3G TS 21.101

Open publication of security algorithms under discussion

3GPP progress in 2000

Release ‘00 planned and ambitious target date set as Dec ‘00

Release ‘00 will include an all IP core network

working methods
Working methods

3GPP is employing modern working methods:

  • TSG meetings are 100% paperless
  • 4 portable LANs available within MCC, thanks to Nortel Networks
  • Work progressed between meeting using 70+ email discussion lists

New features broken down into building blocks and work tasks

Inter-dependencies between work tasks now mapped

Better prediction for availability of new features and critical path planning

project support
Project Support

3GPP has a Mobile Competence Centre (MCC) providingcomprehensive project support


  • is located at the ETSI HQ in Sophia Antipolis, France
  • has 27 full time personnel
  • is an International team with 12 nationalities from 4 continents
  • is ISO 9000 compliant
  • 3GPP is well established
  • 6 OPs representing Europe, Asia and North America
  • 5 MRPs (vendors, operators) providing consolidated market requirements (more MRPs to follow?)
  • First years results are of an unprecedented volume and speed
  • Release ‘99 firmly established
  • Release ‘00 prospects are promising
  • 3GPP is a principle driver in IMT 2000
