Open Network Foundation taps Huawei exec to lead wireless group

Serge Manning

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit dedicated to opening up Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology, has announced the appointment of Dr. Serge Manning, senior manager for corporate standards at Huawei, as chairman of the ONF Wireless and Mobile Working Group.

The working group was created to collect use cases and determine architectural and protocol requirements for extending OpenFlow technologies in wireless and mobile. The goal is to propose common ground architectural frameworks that will encompass different elements of OpenFlow-based or OpenFlow-oriented wireless and mobile network domains. The group has already created three projects related to the mobile packet core, wireless backhaul, and integrated fixed/wireless operation in the enterprise.

Dan Pitt, executive director of the Open Networking Foundation said of Manning: “His expertise and the work of this new Group will be important as we more deeply engage with wireless and mobile operators around the globe.”

Launched in 2011 by Deutsche Telekom, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Verizon, and Yahoo, the Open Networking Foundation is a growing nonprofit organisation with more than 100 members.
