Abstract. We define and discuss an extension of the quantization concept to odd-dimensional manifolds. After that we describe its relation to (the usual) even-dimensional quantization and how its famous properties like ``Quantization commutes with reduction'' can be regained in odd dimensions. At the end, we analyse the situation on 3-manifolds and give some examples.
