The ITU-T Joint Coordination Activity for IMT2020 and Beyond (JCA IMT2020)
thanks all that have replied to previous requests for input on IMT-2020 and
beyond related standardization work. The current online version of the roadmap
is available from the JCA-IMT2020 website.

The objective of the roadmap is to support IMT-2020 and beyond standardization
coordination. IMT-2020 and beyond are the important topics for our industry,
and many standardization-related activities are held in various entities.

The JCA is progressing this work in a form of roadmap of IMT2020 and beyond

JCA-IMT2020 will keep updating this roadmap, and therefore we solicit your
information about updates. If you send us the latest information of your
activity related to 5G and beyond as well as Network Function Virtualization
(NFV), programmable networks, self-managed networks, autonomous network,
slicing (including orchestration and capability exposure), fixed-mobile and
satellite convergence (FMC) and Information-Centric Networking (ICN), machine
learning and other activities that are strongly related to IMT 2020, we will
reflect it in the next roadmap update, which will be performed online soon
after the next JCA IMT2020 meeting.

Please submit your updates using the template to be found in appendix below. In
the last column of this template, we expect to get a direct pointer to your
document and not to the website where one needs to search for your document.
Should you wish to communicate any additional information about your
specifications and projects, we invite you to do so. If you have a
representative that wishes to present at an upcoming JCA-IMT2020 meeting,
please let us know.

In addition, if not done yet, we invite the ITU-T Study Groups, SDOs, fora to
nominate a representative to this group.

JCA-IMT2020 anticipates having its next meeting in October 2023 alongside the
ITU-T SG13 meeting in Geneva. We invite your inputs/updates to the roadmap.
