Supplement 1. Handbook - Deployment of IMT-2000 Systems

image of Migration to IMT-2000 Systems

This ITU-R Supplement expands on the first edition of the ITU Handbook on Deployment of IMT-2000 Systems and represents much of the work that has occurred since the release of the Handbook to address, among other topics, the subject of evolution and migration from current mobile systems towards IMT-2000. This Supplement will serve as a practical tool to assist countries in their endeavours to further develop their mobile communication networks and enhance the quality of services offered.



Concluding remarks

This Supplement to the Handbook offers additional information and guidance to operators and administrations on the radio aspects associated with the evolution/migration of pre-IMT-2000 systems to IMT-2000 systems. It makes use of further studies and the experience that has been gained since the Handbook was published. The Supplement illustrates that the net effect of the gradual substitution of pre-IMT-2000 systems with IMT-2000 systems worldwide will be the result of the combination of substitution processes in many countries where local conditions and investment policies will determine the actual path taken and, ultimately, the speed of the transition.
