The 3GPP has warned that its next major release of 5G mobile network standards may be delayed, due to the inability to hold face-to-face meetings during the coronavirus pandemic. It has been holding virtual meetings since early this year, which has already resulted in a few months delay in the standards process. It will decide at the next plenary meeting in December whether it can still meet a late 2021 schedule for the initial stage of Release 17.
