Samsung Electronics has begun hosting the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in Busan, South Korea this week, bringing approximately 1,500 telecommunications experts together from across the world in the aim of finalising the standard technologies for 5G commercialisation.

Attendees include representatives from the world’s leading international chipset, handset, wireless equipment and telecommunications companies including Qualcomm, Verizon, AT&T, NTT DoCoMo and Samsung itself, alongside regional mobile operators - SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus.

“The first 5G standard, which includes innovative technologies developed by Samsung Electronics, will be completed at this 3GPP conference,” said Seunghwan Cho, Executive Vice President of Samsung Research.

“This will lead the market to commercialize 5G communication to serve as the core infrastructure for the coming fourth industrial revolution.”

These technologies will include 5G wireless access technology that provides ultra-high-speed data on ultra-low latency.

The latest 3GPP conference comes less than half a year after the previous meeting that approved the 5G non-standalone (NSA) standard. However, whilst the 5G NSA uses 4G LTE as the anchor for 5G connections, the 5G standalone (SA) standard is set to be specifically focused on 5G wireless infrastructure.

The 3GPP conference runs between 21 May – 25 May.
