ITU has established a new Focus Group to identify the network standardisation requirements for the 5G development of International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) for 2020 and beyond. The network studies will be hosted by ITU’s Standardization Sector (ITU-T).

These "IMT-2020" systems will enable wireless communication to match the speed and reliability achieved by fibre-optic infrastructure. The potential application fields of IMT-2020 systems, in addition to voice and video, span from healthcare to industrial automation, virtual reality, automated driving, and robotic systems controlled with an imperceptible time lag.

One-millisecond end-to-end latency is necessary for technical systems to replicate natural human interaction with our environment, a goal that experts say should be within reach of future networks.
