A range of requirements and expectations condition the transition from pre-IMT-2000 to IMT-2000 systems – with those associated with capitalizing on investments in infrastructure already in-place playing a key role. Although these motivations are generally common to different countries and different operators, it is their perceived relative importance, as well as the attitude towards transitioning, that determine the actual transition path in developed and developing countries. ITU-D, the Development Sector of ITU, is producing guidelines intended to help developing countries identify transition paths meeting their priorities and accommodating their specificities.
