Work has started in ITU and 3GPP to develop requirements and specifications for new radio (NR) systems, as in the Recommendation ITU-R M.2083 "Framework and overall objectives of the future development of IMT for 2020 and beyond", as well as 3GPP SA1 study item New Services and Markets Technology Enablers (SMARTER) and SA2 study item Architecture for NR System. 3GPP has to identify and develop the technology components needed for successfully standardizing the NR system timely satisfying both the urgent market needs, and the more long-term requirements set forth by the ITU-R IMT-2020 process. In order to achieve this, evolutions of the radio interface as well as radio network architecture are considered in the study item "New Radio Access Technology" .
The present document covers the Radio Interface Protocol aspects of the study item "New Radio Access Technology" . This document is intended to gather the agreements for which normative work will take place after completing this study item. In limited cases, major options and reasons of decision are described.
