Body
Dear Ray,

Please find attached an approved NGMN Liaison Statement on the NGMN 5G White
Paper. 

The major outcome of the NGMN 5G Initiative – the public NGMN 5G White Paper
–has now been finalised. The intention of this liaison is to inform IETF about
the NGMN 5G vision, requirements, guidelines and way forward outlined in the
NGMN 5G White Paper. Please share the NGMN 5G White Paper with all your
relevant working groups or projects and kindly ask them to consider this in
their future work. Please make them aware of the future NGMN 5G related
planning as outlined in the liaison statement.

We would like to invite IETF to provide feedback on the NGMN 5G White Paper.
In addition, we would like to inform IETF that it is our intention to keep
IETF updated on our future NGMN 5G work-programme and the related requirements
at major milestones.

In addition to the White Paper and the liaison response, NGMN would like to
highlight the following point with regards to the NGMN Spectrum related
requirements: 
The final version of the White Paper replaces all previous versions of the
White Paper and the ‘Executive Version of the White Paper’ (shared with IETF
and published in December 2014). Please note that in particular the Spectrum
section of the White Paper has been updated (compared to the ‘Executive
Version of the White Paper’). The final version of the White Paper is now the
reference document. 

We look forward to deeper and further collaboration with IETF on 5G related
activities.

Regards,
Klaus
