NGMN Provides Contributions to 3GPP TSG SA WG2
Frankfurt, Germany, 16th May 2017
Since communicating an initial set of Architecture Principles to 3GPP TSG WG2 in November 2016 the NGMN Requirements and Architecture (P1) E2E Architecture Framework group has developed their End-to-end Architecture Framework document further. Given the relative timescales of the project and of SA2’s work item for the 5G Architecture - Phase 1 it has been decided to share an interim version of the NGMN Architecture Framework document in order for SA2 to become aware of the additional principles agreed thus far, and to see the full scope of the activity. This contribution has been sent to 3GPP on 12th May for the 3GPP meetings in the week commencing 15th May.
In addition in a second contribution, NGMN operators recommend that 3GPP takes NGMN operators’ requirements into account and defines the 5G baseline architecture using the Service Based Architecture approach.
